University of Nebraska to waive undergrad application fees for two weeks

Unl 1024x576

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Four University of Nebraska campuses will waive the undergraduate admission application fee for all Nebraska students for two weeks to encourage them to attend college.

From Sept. 16 through Sept. 30, applicants will be eligible for fee waivers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska at Kearney, the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture

Applicants for the 2023-24 academic year should select “fee waiver” and enter the code “NUforNE.”

NU President Ted Carter said waiving the application fee is a simple step the universities can take to ensure access and opportunity for Nebraskans.

The waiver was launched in 2020, a move that the university system says broadened access to secondary education and increased NU’s visibility.

This waiver period syncs up with a wave of statewide college fairs, giving students and families the opportunity to explore the different campuses in Nebraska.

Students must complete the 2023-24 Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which opens Oct. 1, to be eligible for Nebraska Promise, which lets students with family incomes of up to $65,000 to attend any NU campus tuition-free.
