You'll need books and health insurance too.

Potential additional costs

Books: You can buy books through our bookstore, online or from friends. Often times books are cheaper rented or used.  We recommend budgeting $1,625 (maximum cost for new textbooks)  annually if you prefer in-hand (as opposed to digital) textbooks. 

Computer: A laptop computer with internet access is required of all Union graduate students and is necessary upon matriculation into the program. 

Health insurance: All full-time students are required to have health insurance. You’ll need to provide proof of insurance at registration, or you can purchase plans through Union Adventist University for $2,527. Prices vary year-to-year. For more information contact Student Life (402.486.2507).

Other things to know

To get financial clearance, follow the financial checklist. This will include paying a $100 confirmation deposit to lock in your spot so you can register for courses (you'll need your UC-ID number and password to pay).

Find scholarships. As a Union Adventist University student, you have access to ScholarshipUniverse, a tool that helps you access millions in scholarships from thousands of organizations and walks you through the application process. Set up your account to get started!

Payment plan. Most graduate students take out enough student loans to cover their cost of living. However, if you would like to make a monthly payment plan while in school, you can. 

Refund policy. The policies and procedures for refunds of tuition and fees may be found in the Union Adventist University Bulletin.

Housing. College apartments are available, on space available basis, to married students, students who are parents, or students 22 years of age or older. We are also in a residential section of town with many housing options available.

Union Market. Union Adventist University's dining hall offers a wide variety of options sure to please any palette. Food is charged by weight. If you would like to have a meal plan in Union Market, the cost is $250 per semester and you will receive a 20% discount every time you make a purchase in Union Market. If you go without a meal plan, you can still buy food by paying with cash, debit or credit card at the cashier. 

There’s always fine print.
