Diversity: The sum of us.

Diversity means a lot of things: It’s about where you came from, and your culture. It’s about your ideas and one-of-a-kind perspective. It’s about the stories and experiences you share with others. When you’re part of a diverse community, everybody is better for it. At Creighton, we’re committed to building a diverse community—and ensuring that all our students feel welcome and safe.

Scholarships & Financial Aid

When you graduate from Creighton, you’ll find a world of opportunities in front of you. That’s one reason why U.S. News & World Report considers us a Best Value School. But we’re also affordable. As an international student, you’re eligible for merit-based scholarships and an interest-free payment plan.

Located in a City Loaded with Opportunities to Succeed


There’s no place quite like Omaha. Accessible from all major airports, Omaha is a vibrant, metropolitan city with a hard-working, hospitable spirit. Four Fortune 500 company world headquarters are located less than 2 miles from campus. Omaha is also growing rapidly, which translates into an abundance of networking and internship opportunities for our students. In fact, we have more internships than we have students to fill them.
