Even if you're not currently enrolled at Nebraska, you're still welcome to join us for a Fall Three-Week Session class.
To enroll, complete an application for admission as a "visiting" student for the Spring semester (the Fall 2020 application is currently closed) before Nov. 20, and email the Office of Admissions before Nov. 25 to let us know you would like to enroll in the Fall Three-Week Session. After you are admitted and we receive an email from you, we will ensure you're able to register for classes.Apply as a Visiting Student »
Fall Three-Week Session
Interested students can take a three-week course after the end of the regular fall semester to catch up or get ahead on their degree requirements, broaden their career skills or explore a new topic.
Course Dates: Nov. 30 to Dec. 18
Registration Starts: Aug. 31 (register as soon as you're able as classes will fill quickly)
Application Deadline for New Students: Nov. 20
Check in MyRED to see if a class has a synchronous component, meaning you'll be required to attend class on Zoom at specific days and times, or if the class is asynchronous, meaning you'll complete all coursework on your own and not be required to join a live class section.
Catch Up or Get Ahead
Now is the perfect time to manage your degree requirements. Taking a three-week course can help you catch up or get ahead on your progress toward your degree.
Broaden Your Career Skills
Many of the three-week classes are designed to help you prepare for what's next after graduation through the exploration of specific career-related topics.
Explore Something New
Stretch your strengths and expand your understanding of the world by exploring new topics or ideas outside of your typical course of study—collaborate and co-create with your peers and professors to solve grand challenges.
Fall Three-Week Session Cost
Tuition and Fees for the Fall Three-Week Session are the same as the regular Fall semester:
- Undergraduate Nebraska Resident Base Tuition: $259 per credit hour
- Undergraduate Nonresident Base Tuition: $830 per credit hour
- See all Tuition Rates »
Because the Fall Three-Week Session is an extension of the Fall semester, the total of your Online Course Fees plus University Program/Facilities Fees is capped at $722. That means the total of these fees for your Fall semester, inclusive of the Fall Three-Week Session, will not exceed $722. Students will receive a Fall 2020 Fee Reduction if their total Online Course Fees plus Program Facilities Fees are more than $722.
You can purchase books for your three-week session coursework through the bookstore using your Ncard or other payment options. Ncard payment will be billed through your student account in MyRED.
Financial Aid Options
Scholarships may be available to you for the Fall Three-Week Session. Because every student's situation is unique, we recommend you contact us through Husker Hub to see if your current scholarships can be used toward the three-week session.
We're Here to Help
Login now for a virtual walk-in with Husker Hub and we can tell you how your scholarships and aid will apply.
Nebraska residents who are Pell eligible or have a family adjusted gross income of $60,000 or below may qualify for up to $950 in need-based aid tuition assistance for three credit hours. A prorated amount will be available for qualified students enrolled in one to two credit hours. Students will not qualify for this grant if they are already receiving a full-tuition scholarship, such as the Regents, Chancellor's, or Nebraska Achievement Tuition scholarship. The availability of financial aid awards will be based on available funding.
Once you are enrolled in the Fall Three-Week Session and have a 2020–2021 FAFSA on file, an application for the need-based grant and loans for financial aid eligible students will be available in mid-to-late September in MyRED on the Financial Aid tab.
Student Loan Options
Additional student loan eligibility may be offered to you if you have not already accepted your annual grade level limit. Your parent may also qualify for a parent loan. Students must be at least half time in the fall semester (15-week and three-week sessions combined) to be considered for additional loan eligibility. If you would like to borrow a private loan, please visit financialaid.unl.edu/loan-aid for more information.
Tuition and fees for the three-week session appear on your student account as soon as you register for classes and are due the next billing cycle. The fall three-week session billing due dates are October 12, 2020, November 12, 2020, and December 12, 2020.
Scholarships and financial aid for the three-week session will be released to your student account beginning December 3, 2020. If you have been offered need-based aid for the three-week session and are unable to pay your three-week session tuition before the aid is released, please contact Husker Hub at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-472-2030.
