To participate in the Nebraska Now program, students must be enrolled in high school and excel academically with a B-average or above.

Junior or senior students (grades 11 or 12) do not need to submit the approval form. See the Nebraska Now website to download the approval form.
Policies & Procedures
• Start your application at go.unl.edu/apply
• Select “Nebraska Now Program” when asked to choose your “Type of Degree.”
As a Nebraska Now student, you are considered a "visiting student" at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, which means you do not intend to earn a degree from the university. If you are applying during your senior year and plan to attend Nebraska after high school, you must complete both the “visiting student” application AND the “degree seeking” first-year college student application.
• Pay the $45 application fee prompted at the end of your application. After submitting your application, you will not be required to provide any other form of documentation. The Nebraska Now application is honored for one academic year. Students who apply for a summer or fall session will not need to reapply in the spring.
If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact WHS Counselor John Harris (443-4332 ext. 3229, firstname.lastname@example.org).
