Below is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Student Accounts refund policy as it applies to 8-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.

Registration will open 30 days prior to the start of the term. The August and October terms are both considered part of the fall semester. The January and March terms are both considered part of the spring semester.

Online MBA class numbers are hidden in MyRED – they will not show up in a class search. Class numbers needed for registration will be emailed out from the MBA office 30 days prior to the start of the term.


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

The registration system is based on the traditional on-campus semester schedule. Because our 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.

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 CBA Graduate Programs Office for completing this requirement once you are registered.
  4. The Final Exam Report will be submitted by the CBA Graduate Programs Office.
