Outstanding Experience. In-State Price.

The University of Nebraska at Kearney offers a scholarship to all out-of-state undergraduate students so they will pay the in-state tuition rate. With the New Nebraskan Scholarship, non-resident students will receive a discount to save up to $30,600 on tuition over a 4-year period, matching in-state tuition rates.

Non-residents Pay In-state Tuition

With the New Nebraskan Scholarship, non-resident undergraduate students will pay the in-state rate to attend UNK. There is no application for the New Nebraskan Scholarship; you only need to apply to UNK and the scholarship will be added to your financial aid offer. Apply to UNK

“In-state tuition has BEEN HUGE. The quality of education is amazing and smaller class sizes have provided me with better opportunities. Kearney is very communal and FEELS LIKE HOME. I’m so glad that I chose to come here.”
