UNL connects Nebraska high school students to the University experience

Information about UNL's NEBRASKA Now Program: offering students dual-credit courses at highly reduced tuition rates

Beginning November 9, 2016, admitted NEBRASKA Now students can start to enroll in classes for the Spring 2017 semester. This means that students who would like to take college-level courses next semester should apply for the NEBRASKA Now program as soon as possible. Students currently enrolled for the Fall 2016 term do not need to reapply for Spring 2017.

Through NEBRASKA Now, students have the opportunity to take classes from real college professors and work with real college classmates, all while doing real college-level work. Although NEBRASKA Now is more challenging than high school, most students who have at least a "B" average high school GPA do well. We have specifically selected classes for NEBRASKA Now that we know younger students can manage if they work hard. In addition, professors who teach these classes understand younger scholars may need different kinds of support than their older peers.

NEBRASKA Now students will have their application fee waived when they apply as degree-seeking students. Most NEBRASKA Now classes are offered at a flat $250-rate per 3 credit-hour class. The same class at the regular in-state tuition rate would cost $675.75, a savings of $425.75 per class. Additionally, if a student earns at least a 3.0 GPA in their NEBRASKA Now classes, they’ll also be eligible for at least $1,000 in merit-based scholarship at NEBRASKA Now for their first year. If a student takes one class each semester their junior and senior year, your savings would look like this:

$1,703 (tuition savings) + $1,000 scholarship = $2,703 Savings
