Getting Started

  1. Check for program availability in your state
  2. Select a program (if you'd like assistance understanding your choices please contact us)
  3. Understand the admission process - specific application criteria can be found on the Admissions tab of your program of interest
  4. Apply to your home campus

Once you select a program you'll apply for admission, work with an academic adviser to choose courses, and receive your diploma from the 'home campus' of that program. Diplomas and transcripts are no different than those students taking on-campus courses receive. 

A University of Nebraska Degree Wherever You Are

University of Nebraska online programs give adult learners from around the world access to the opportunity to be taught by the same expert faculty who teach at the four University of Nebraska campuses. Their online courses are challenging, current and relevant. We attract highly qualified, strongly motivated, undergraduate, graduate and professional students who are serious about their education.
