Special Circumstances

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will make every effort to mitigate financial burdens created by COVID-19. Students who have experienced or whose families have experienced changes in financial circumstances should contact Husker Hub and request a re-evaluation of your financial aid application. Each circumstance is unique and each student's situation will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis regarding our ability to meet emergency needs with additional or emergency aid

Remote Learning Technology

If you do not have a personal computer to study remotely, or a WiFi hotspot, you may request an increase in your cost of attendance (COA) for the cost of a computer or other hardware necessary to study remotely. Increasing your COA permits the option of additional loans or other types of aid to cover such cost. A cost estimate or a copy of the purchase receipt can be submitted for review. To begin the review process to request an increase in your cost of attendance (COA), contact Husker Hub at or by phone at 402-472-2030. 

University of Nebraska Information Technology Services (ITS) is moving to require Two-Factor Authentication for all students. Students will need to have a Two-Factor device.
