The University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK) is one of four campuses of the University of Nebraska. It is a public university with nationally renowned faculty and a student-centered regional hub of educational excellence. It was established in 1905 as the Nebraska State Normal School at Kearney. In 1921, its name was changed to Nebraska State Teacher’s College, then to Kearney State College in 1963, and finally to the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 1991.
Today, UNK is recognized as one of the best universities in the Midwest. It offers 170 undergraduate majors; 25 pre-professional programs; and 34 graduate programs. The university is divided into four academic colleges: the College of Fine Arts and Humanities, the College of Natural and Social Sciences, the College of Business and Technology, and the College of Education.
In addition to its on-campus undergraduate and graduate degree programs, UNK also has an eCampus for distance learning that offers quality, affordable education to nontraditional adult students who may live too far away or are too busy to attend regular day classes but who nonetheless are interested to pursue higher education.
Online degree programs offer the same quality of education as those offered on campus. Accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, UNK’s eCampus offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees online. These courses include Art Education, Music Specialization, Organizational Communication, Business Administration and many more.
Tuition per credit hour for in-state students enrolled in UNK’s eCampus is US$184 for undergraduate students; US$218 for graduate students; and US$228 for Biology Graduate students. For out-of-state students, tuition per credit hour is US$284.25 for undergraduates; US$356 for graduates; and US$404 for Biology Graduate students. Financial aid is extended via loans, grants and scholarships.
