For nearly 60 years, UNO has provided a pathway to success for tens of thousands of graduates. We offer a wide array of highly relevant undergraduate and graduate academic degree programs in one of the most exciting and culturally vibrant cities in the world. Our alumni are leaders in a number of fields both across the nation and globally. Most scholarships are awarded based on academic credentials and student accomplishments reviewed through the admission's process. A separate scholarship application is not required, but ACT or SAT test scores and an official, current high school transcript should be submitted as soon as possible. Transfer students should submit all college transcripts as soon as possible.

Institutional scholarships only are offered to new, incoming students who enroll in the Fall or Summer. Students who enroll in Spring are unfortunately unable to receive Institutional scholarships as scholarship funding is limited and typically exhausted on students who enroll in the Fall. Students incoming for Spring terms are encouraged to contact their academic college to inquire about available departmental scholarships.

Continuing students (students who have already attended UNO for 1 or more semesters) are unfortunately not eligible for Institutional scholarships and should inquire about departmental Scholarship opportunities with their academic college .
