NEBRASKA Promise  The Nebraska Promise program covers undergraduate tuition at the University of Nebraska (UNO, UNK and UNL) for students who have a family income of $60,000 or less (Adjusted Gross Income/AGI) or are Pell Grant-eligible, and who meet academic requirements. Current 2020 Nebraska seniors are eligible. A FAFSA must be completed.

Nearly 3,000 students currently attend NU tuition-free under Collegebound Nebraska. The expanded Nebraska Promise will cover approximately 1,000 additional current and future NU students. Through this program, the desire is to expand access and support for Nebraskans who may not have thought they could afford a university education.  Click HERE for more information about Nebraska Promise.
