Spring Three-Week Session
Interested students can take a three-week course at the beginning of the regular spring semester to catch up or get ahead on their degree requirements, broaden their career skills or explore a new topic.
Course Dates: Jan. 4–Jan. 22
Registration Starts: Oct. 26 (register as soon as you're able as classes will fill quickly)
Application Deadline for New or Visiting Students: Dec. 18
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.
Spring Three-Week Session Cost
Tuition and fees for the Spring Three-Week Session are the same as the regular semesters:
- Undergraduate Nebraska Resident Base Tuition: $259 per credit hour
- Undergraduate Nonresident Base Tuition: $830 per credit hour
- See all Tuition Rates »
The Spring Three-Week Session is a part of the spring semester, so 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 spring semester, inclusive of the Spring Three-Week Session, will not exceed $722. Students will receive a Spring 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 Spring 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.

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 Spring 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 early November in MyRED on the Financial Aid tab.
Note: Federal Pell Grant eligibility for the Spring Semester, including the Three-Week Session, will be based on your enrollment status as of February 1, 2020. If the hours in which you are enrolled for the Spring Three-Week Session were used to calculate your Federal Pell Grant and you drop or withdraw from a class prior to that date, your Federal Pell Grant may be reduced or cancelled, even if you were offered this grant prior to February 1, 2020.
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 spring semester (15-week and three-week sessions combined) to be considered for additional loan eligibility.
Federal loans will be released once a student reaches half time enrollment (6 credits for undergraduate students). Most loans will not disburse until the 15-week session as that is when most students will reach half time enrollment.
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 first spring billing due date, including the three-week session, is February 12, 2021.
Scholarships and financial aid for the three-week session will be released to your student account.
