Financial Support


You don't have to delay your dream of obtaining a college degree. You can receive a quality education for significantly less than other state universities. UNO awards students for their academic achievements and works to assist those with financial need by utilizing grants, state supplements (such as TOPS), and scholarships to meet students' financial obligation to the University.

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistants in good academic standing and meeting full-time enrollment requirements receive a stipend and a waiver of the non-resident fee.
