How to Get Started

Whether you're an undergraduate or graduate student, we know cost is an important factor in your education decision. That's why the University of Nebraska at Omaha works hard to keep our tuition competitively priced. Making sense of financial aid is not difficult once you understand it. The first step is filing a FAFSA form. Remember to add UNO's School Code to your FAFSA: 002554

Important Updates 

Nebraska Promise Deadlines

For the 2022-2023 academic year, UNO’s deadline to complete the FAFSA to receive priority consideration for all types of aid at UNO, including Nebraska Promise, is April 1, 2022. You must also submit all requested “To Do” list items by June 1, 2022 to receive priority consideration for all types of aid at UNO, including Nebraska Promise. If you submit documents after June 1, 2022, you will still be considered for Federal financial aid. However, we cannot guarantee that you will receive enough gift aid (instititional and state grants/scholarships) to cover the cost of tuition.
