What our students say

One of our favorite questions to ask new students is, "Why did you choose NKU?" With so many options available, we are proud to learn that our students choose us for many fantastic reasons, including:

  • Opportunity - With the city of Cincinnati just a short drive away, NKU has the benefit of being next to a city that is ranked among the "Best Places to Live" (U.S. News), scoring highest on value and job market. With several Fortune 500 companies bringing national and international talent, it's no wonder our students are drawn to the area!
  • Affordability - At NKU, not only do we start with an affordable tuition rate, but every international student is automatically considered* for a merit-based scholarship at the time of admission, with students last year receiving over $6,000 on average in annual international merit aid.
  • Safety - NKU has consistently be ranked among the safest colleges in the U.S., recently being listed 3rd in the 2018 list of Safest College Campuses in America.
