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

Balances Generated on MavLINK

Balances have been generated for credit hours enrolled for the Fall 2021 semester. Balances may not include charges such as housing or bookstore charges. Financial aid will begin disbursing approximately one week before classes begin. Now is a great time to check MavLINK and your To-Do List.  Please review important Fall disbursement information. Not sure about your Fall 2021 financial aid? Review MavLINK and contact us today. Questions about student fees? 

Parking permits become available starting August 1. The UNO Bookstore will start selling Fall 2021 textbooks on August 2.

Nebraska Promise Deadlines

UNO’s deadline to complete the FAFSA to receive priority consideration for all types of aid at UNO, including Nebraska Promise, has been extended to May 1. You must also submit all requested “To Do” list items by the extended deadline of July 1 to receive priority consideration for all types of aid at UNO, including Nebraska Promise. If you submit documents after July 1, 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.
