Save Up to $2,704 on Your College Bill

Nebraska Now courses are offered at a flat $330-rate per class. The same course at the regular in-state tuition rate would cost $756 or more, a savings of at least $426 per class.

Additionally, if you earn at least a 3.0 GPA in your Nebraska Now courses, you will also be eligible for at least $1,000 in academic scholarships* at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln for your first year.

If you take one course each semester your junior and senior year and maintain at least a B-average, your savings will look like this:

Label Cost
Junior Year Fall: $426
Junior Year Spring: $426
Senior Year Fall: $426
Senior Year Spring: $426
Tuition Savings: $1,704

Tuition Savings: $1,704
Academic Scholarship: $1,000
Total Savings: $2,704

*The GPA calculation will only include coursework attempted by the fall semester of your senior year in high school. Grades must be posted by March 1 to be considered for the scholarship commitment (i.e. spring coursework attempted in your senior year will not count toward the GPA criteria for scholarship consideration). This scholarship awards at least $1,000 in an academic scholarship—if you receive a larger academic scholarship, the larger award will replace the Nebraska Now scholarship.
