Open enrollment at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture is underway in more ways than one.
During NCTA Discovery Days on October 4 or November 14, students and their parents can learn about academic programs, housing, costs, scholarships, application criteria, and more.
Advance registration is requested to Discovery Day to plan a campus tour best suited to a potential student’s interest, and for a meal count, said Gaylene Stinman, admissions recruiter. Sign up at https://ncta.unl.edu/discovery-days.
“We welcome high school seniors and their families to attend of the two offerings of Discovery Day this fall semester,” Stinman said. Springtime dates are March 6 and April 11, 2023.
Any Nebraskan who will have a high school diploma is eligible to apply for college admission at NCTA, regardless of grade point average or score on national tests.

Also, unique to Nebraska residents, is Nebraska Promise, a University of Nebraska financial aid program that provides full tuition coverage for in-state students with family incomes of $65,000 or less.
