Admissions & Aid
One of the reasons students like UNI so much: we know you by name. It’s part of what makes UNI special. From the moment you connect with Admissions through graduation day, it’s all about you, your individual interests and your personal goals.
We talk to you about where you want to go, and we walk you through all the basics to get there, from simple requirements and important dates to available scholarships and an easy four-step application process. We’re with you every step of the way.
The support you'll receive as a UNI student starts long before your first day of classes. It begins now, with our team of Admission Counselors. We’re here to help you through the admission process and along your journey to becoming a Panther.
