Colleges in Nebraska: Universities, Trade and Technical Schools

Nebraska Colleges Summary

Nebraska has a relatively small number of colleges and career schools, with just over 50 over them, and a little under 125,000 students. As a thinly populated state this is to be expected. Interestingly though, Nebraska is one of only 15 states with more than 7% of its population attending such schools.

As of 2005 there were 15 public schools in Nebraska. The number of people attending for-profit schools in Nebraska is relatively small, with just over 2.5%. Only 11 US states have a lower percentage of their students attending for-profit schools.

The largest school in the state is the University of Nebraska with over 35,000 students, and locations in Lincoln and Omaha. Nebraska also has two community colleges with more than 10,000 students. These are Metropolitan Community College and Southeast Community College. The largest for-profit school in the state is Bellevue University with nearly 6,000 students.
