In the college search process, bigger is not always better and cheaper is not always the best value. The award-winning and nationally recognized programs at the University of Northern Iowa are just a few of the reasons our most successful graduates consistently cite UNI as a major factor in preparing them for their achievements in life and in the workplace.

Did you know that 88 percent of UNI students are Iowa residents? As the state's comprehensive university, UNI focuses on educating Iowans who predominately stay in Iowa to work and live after graduation. And, of alumni who graduated in the last 10 years, about 78 percent have remained in Iowa.

Here are some additional reasons why students succeed at UNI:

  • The university is No. 4 in affordability, accessibility and academic quality - Midwestern Regional A-list, collegeatlas.org
