Tuition & Fees

Invest in your future

The cost of your education is an investment in your future as a healthcare professional.

Update: As of 9/10/2023, the UNMC Occupational Therapy Program has a new financial support award opportunity for non-resident students. This award ensures that non-residents will pay the equivalent of the resident tuition rate for the duration of the program, by covering the differential between the non-resident and resident rates.  

The UNMC College of Allied Health Professions is committed to making health professions education accessible by reducing financial barriers for students, so they may realize their career goals. Find out more on Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Tuition and fees are subject to change, as determined by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents.

Variable Costs

Please note: For those students accepted to the Kearney campus, there is a nominal cost differential resulting from fees generated for miscellaneous items such as the campus newspaper, access to sporting events on the UNK campus, and a multicultural allocation. This nominal cost cannot be waived. For more specific information regarding the fees, please contact the College of Allied Health Professions' Academic and Student Affairs Office at 402-559-6673.

Additional variable costs include required attendance at professional meetings and clinical education affiliations (including travel and room and board costs).
NOTE: Travel and living expenses for clinical education should be anticipated; no student will be allowed to complete all clinical education experiences in the Omaha/Lincoln area. The amount of these expenses will vary depending on individual student schedules.

Housing and Living Allowances

Information about housing both on and off campus may be found at the UNMC housing website and Kearney housing. Housing and living expenses are not included in the estimated tuition and related expenses above. See the financial aid office for details on living allowances.
