Below is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Student Accounts refund policy. This table applies to eight-week courses.

Refund % % of calendar days passed
100% 0.000% - 7.408%
75% 7.409% - 10.256%
50% 10.257% - 16.239%
25% 16.240% - 22.222%
0% 22.223% - 100%

The refund policy is calculated based on the percentage of calendar days that have passed since the first day of class. This percentage is based on the number of calendar days in the term and this total will vary by term.. When you try to drop, the MyRED system will tell you the exact refund you will receive.


Students will use MyRED to register and pay for classes each term.

The registration system is based on the traditional on-campus semester schedule. The GRBA classes run on unique, 8-week terms. Students who plan to enroll in more than one 8-week term per semester must register for both terms before the start of the traditional semester.

The College of Business at Nebraska has a dedicated team of career coaches to help our business students achieve their career goals. Our career coaches are ready and willing to help our on-campus and online students in a variety of ways.


Approximately six months before you plan to graduate you should begin familiarizing yourself with the details, requirements, and deadline dates of those requirements.

  1. If you still have "Incomplete" grades, they will need to be cleared at least 30 days prior to graduation.
  2. You will need to submit an Application for Graduation approximately 90 days prior to graduation. The form is in MyRed. The fee is $25.
  3. Once approved by Graduate Studies for graduation, our office will then register you for GRBA 098 - MBA Assessment. GRBA 98 is comprised of two surveys. It is a zero (0) credit hour course. You will be emailed more instructions from the College of Business Graduate Programs Office for completing this requirement once you are registered.
  4. The Final Exam Report will be submitted by the College of Business Graduate Programs Office.
