Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
Of course every school's tuition is expensive, but as long as you fill out the FAFSA or put some effort into scholarship searches, you will find financial aid. As for UNO compensating for the prices, they certainly offer many amenities outside of class for tuition. There's HPER for working out, an extensive library, and great student center right on campus for all students to take advantage of.

I like the Mavcard program, it's our student id card and you can preload it with cash to make purchases on campus! Everytime you do use it on campus, you can get an additional 5% off your purchases. Plus, there is a website, where your parents can add money onto your card at anytime!!!
Tamara from Omaha, NE
I feel that being here is definately worth the money. The campus is great and the money paid for tuition and housing goes towards making the college experience more memorable.
Katherine from Dakota City, NE
The tuition is the best by far from the colleges that I looked at. There are a couple of things that are a little expensive. The room and board costs a lot, which can hurt your wallet. Also, the books are overly price (but where are they not?) The food is a bit over priced, but manageable. Overall, it's one of the less expensive colleges out there
Will from Omaha, NE
I am enrolled for 17 credit hours and it's reasonably priced. I am an in-state student and didn't get many scholarships, but I believe many students do recieve them!!
Natalie from Omaha, NE
UNO is one of the more cost-effective Universities in the Midwest. The price you pay for your education is much cheaper if you were to compare to other Universities. With the quality of education you are getting here, it is a no brainer why people chose to come to UNO.
Jayson from UNO
Tuition is always a burden, however if you go to class, take part in clubs and the seemingly weekly free events that UNO offers, and make use of the amazing HYPR building, it is completely worth the money.
Alexander from Omaha, NE
UNO is extremely great tuition prices, I am always amazed at my tuition bill!
Rachel from Omaha, NE
All colleges are expensive, so UNO's tuition is par for the course. However UNO does a great job of compensating qualified out-of-state students with substantial scholarships.
