If you are offered a campus-wide scholarship upon admission, you will receive an official scholarship offer letter from the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid notifying you of your scholarship award. Your scholarship offer will also appear in MyRED under the financial aid tab, which is also where you accept your scholarship offer. If your scholarship is renewable, the notification will include a webpage listing the full eligibility and renewal policies and expectations of the scholarship.
It is your responsibility to review, understand, and comply with the standards of scholarship renewal. If you are unable to find the original scholarship offer letter or renewal information, you can visit our Scholarship Guidelines page that lists the renewal criteria for each scholarship based on the semester in which you entered UNL at go.unl.edu/schguide. Each scholarship program may have different requirements and some requirements may differ depending on which semester you first enrolled.
If there are extenuating circumstances that impact your ability to fulfill the renewal criteria, you may appeal your scholarship non-renewal. To learn more about scholarship non-renewal appeals, visit financialaid.unl.edu/scholarship-appeals. If you are academically dismissed, contact your academic advisor for information regarding readmission prior to appealing your scholarship.
If you have studied abroad or are working through the credit validation process, you do not need to complete the standard scholarship appeal process. Once your study abroad hours have been included as a part of your UNL transcript, you can complete the Scholarship Reinstatement Form at financialaid.unl.edu/scholarship-reinstatement. We will review your records to determine if your scholarship for the upcoming academic year can be released to your student account.
