Unique Programs of Study or Enrollment

Intercampus & Joint Registration:

Students who will be jointly registered at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), the University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK), the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture (NCTA), or the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will be funded by the institution at which they are are pursuing a degree. Courses taken at all institutions must be required for the degree at the funding institution. Students considering intercampus enrollment who have federal financial aid should check with the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid prior to enrolling.

Non-Degree Graduate Program:

To be eligible for financial aid consideration, students must usually be admitted into a degree program. Non-degree graduate students enrolled only in undergraduate courses as determined to be necessary by the school for enrollment in a graduate degree program may be eligible for Federal Direct Student Loan Program loans at a fifth year loan limit for twelve consecutive months. Contact the OSFA for an enrollment verification form and an instruction sheet. Your financial aid application will not be processed until this form is received. Financial aid will be based on undergraduate enrollment requirements.

Teacher Certification Program:

Students enrolled in a Teacher Certification Program (bachelor's degree previously received) are awarded financial aid at undergraduate levels based on undergraduate enrollment requirements.

Second Undergraduate Degree:

A student working on a second undergraduate degree may be eligible for the Federal Work-Study, or Federal Direct Student Loan Programs provided the Undergraduate Admissions Office has granted approval for a second undergraduate degree. Undergraduate satisfactory academic progress requirements still apply and may result in the student being ineligible for financial assistance.


Students who plan to attend another institution for a semester/term but still complete their degree at UNL may qualify for a consortium agreement, if the coursework taken elsewhere is not offered at UNL but meets a UNL degree requirement. A consortium is an agreement between two institutions which enables a student to receive financial aid through the degree institution while attending a "host" institution. To apply for a consortium, contact the OSFA for a consortium agreement form and submit the form to the OSFA when it is complete. A student participating in a consortium agreement must be enrolled in at least one credit hour at UNL.
