Nebraska Now is an opportunity for high school students to earn real college credit from real college professors online or in real college classrooms. If you have students
enrolled in this program or are interested in participating, here are some tips you should know to help support them.
Apply as a Visiting Student
When submitting an application, Nebraska Now students apply as Visiting Students. All that is needed for admission is the application
and the $45 application fee. Students who qualify, can have the application fee waived. Students can submit an application here:
- Fall 2017: August 11th 2017
- Spring 2017: December 16th 2016
Acquire an NUID
Every University of Nebraska student is issued an NUID. As university students, Nebraska Now students will get an NUID too.
After they have been admitted, they will be sent information in an e-mail explaining how to acquire their NUID and set up a MyRed account.
Sign Up For Classes
Registration for spring courses occurs in November and registration for fall occurs in March. We will help remind your admitted
Nebraska Now Students about upcoming dates. Enrollment is handled through MyRed. Only select classes are in the Nebraska Now
Program. Nebraska Now classes and call numbers can be found here: go.unl.edu/nebraska-now-courses. All Nebraska Now classes will
be section 800 (online) or 801 (on campus).
A list of classes offered in Spring 2017 will be made available in October. Open Registration for Nebraska Now Students begins in November.
Set Up the Classroom Portal
After students enroll in classes, they should set up their online classroom portal. This is where they will go to access course material,
participate in classroom discussions, and will be the primary source of communication with their instructors. Students can click the
following link to set up their classroom portal. go.unl.edu/blackboard-setup
