Cost & Scholarships

"Price is what you pay.
Value is what you get."

Although tuition at UNL is much lower than many universities, at UNL value is measured in more than just cost:

  • Personal attention in classrooms that average 28 students
  • Conduct graduate level research as an undergraduate through the UCARE Program
  • Low cost of tuition
  • Scholarship Opportunities
  • Career Counseling and Assistance

NEBRASKA also offers a number of student services including tutoring, women's center, career services, child care, health service, and health insurance.
