With a combination of strong academics and affordability, Nebraska is one of just 20 public universities to receive a “Best Buy” designation by the Fiske Guide to Colleges. And with among the lowest tuition in the Big Ten, 65 percent of first-year students receive institutional grants or scholarships*.

College graduates make an average of 50 percent more money and have half the unemployment rate of those who don’t have degrees, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
College isn’t about dumping facts into your head — you use Google for that. College offers access to world-leading experts, state-of-the-art equipment, and a network of like-minded people. The challenges you’ll overcome and experiences you’ll have will set you up for a better career.
Nebraska strives to make college affordable for all families. We offer among the lowest tuition in the Big Ten, and our students who take out loans typically borrow $6,000 less than the national average.
Nebraska is large enough to offer all the opportunities you would expect from a Big Ten university, but small enough you’ll actually have access to them. To see how students turn their experiences at Nebraska into careers, visit the Business Career Center website.

We all need help becoming our best, and sometimes that means financial help. Thanks to alumni and friends who have provided scholarships, the college awards more than $550,000 in scholarships annually. As an incoming student, you are automatically included in the pool for first-year scholarships when you apply to Nebraska by the March 1 university scholarship deadline, declare a business major and are accepted to the university.
You are guaranteed continued scholarship funding as long as you reapply each year and meet the application and qualification requirements, which includes earning a 3.7 cumulative GPA or higher at the end of the spring semester.
