Military Students

Our relationship with the military dates back to 1891 when General John J. Pershing taught military science courses at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. It’s one of the reasons we’re proud to be named on the ‘G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Schools® for 2015.’

With certificates, undergraduate, and graduate programs to choose from, we offer the flexibility, convenience, affordability and quality that only a Big 10 university can provide to further your education wherever you’re located.
