Undergraduate Net Price Calculator

This cost calculator and award eligibility estimate is based on the following:

  • 2022-2023 costs and 2021-2022 aid awarding policies
  • Out of state students will pay in-state rates via the New Nebraskan scholarship. To roughly calculate what you will pay as a non-resident student, complete the net price calculator as a Nebraska resident
  • Filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the award year you plan on attending
  • Maintaining full-time enrollment
  • Being accepted into an undergraduate program at the University of Nebraska at Kearney

The net price calculator is meant to provide students and their families information on what UNK students in similar financial situations paid the previous academic year. Please note that this data is based on aid and cost amounts from a previous year. Your actual award eligibility and Cost of Attendance may vary based on your specific situation.


For additional information regarding residency for tuition purposes, please review the UNK catalog.

The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is the amount of money the government perceives a family can contribute to their student's educational expenses for a particular year. It is an estimate, NOT the amount a family is expected to pay.

The EFC is calculated using information that you will provide on the FAFSA and a formula established by law. A family's income, assets, benefits, size, and the number of children attending college are all considered in calculating an EFC.

If you have not completed the FAFSA, various EFC estimators are available on the web. A good resource can be found at EducationQuest.
