True Red Benefits

Apply and get admitted to Nebraska before November 2, 2017 and you’ll be True Red. You’ll get great perks like:

Expedited Scholarships

When you apply early, you'll also learn about your scholarship eligibility early.

True Reds will learn about their merit-based scholarship eligibility starting in late September, and their leadership and diversity scholarship eligibility starting in mid-October.


Once you pay your enrollment deposit, you’ll be first in line for access to the housing contract and the online room reservation tool will be based on the housing contract signed date (first come first served).

First Pick NSE

True Red members will get their first pick of New Student Enrollment dates. At NSE, you will work with your advisor to select the right classes for your first semester before they fill up. The earlier your NSE date, the better selection of classes you'll have.

Premium Giveaways

We want our True Reds to show their Husker spirit, so early applicants will receive Husker gear from August through November.

The earlier you apply the more gear you'll get.

Don't wait—the giveaways are limited to the first 5,000 True Reds.

Being True Red means you’re getting ahead. There’s no better way to start the most dynamic and important part of your life.

At Nebraska, you’ll perform research alongside your professors, get impressive internships, travel the world, and meet the best friends you’ll ever make. By the time you graduate, you’ll not only land a job, you’ll be ready to make a difference.

And it starts here by being True Red.
