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 courses are not offered in the official summer 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 the day registration opens.


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

Students taking on-campus courses must register for both the first and second terms before the start of the semester. 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.


Time to file your Memorandum of Courses

  1. Fill out the top with your personal information.
  2. Check the MBA box.
  3. Write "Business" on the Major line.
  4. If you are completing a specialization, write it in on the Specialization line.
  5. If you were admitted provisionally due to having deficiencies (i.e. had not met the prerequisites of calculus and/or statistics), list the prerequisites under Courses to Remove Deficiencies and indicate the grade you received.
  6. You must receive a C or better.
  7. List the required courses under Major Courses.
  8. List your breadth electives under Minor and/or Related Courses. Breadth electives must be taken from three of the five interdepartmental business areas – accounting, economics, finance, marketing or management. At least six of the nine hours must be graduate-level only courses (800 or 900 level).

  10. If you have approved transfer credits, they should be substituted for the appropriate class on your MOC.
  11. The MOC must be filed prior to completion of half your program (24 credit hours.) For full-time students, filing in the last month of your second semester is ideal.
  12. Email the completed MOC to your advisor, who will then file it with Graduate Studies once it is approved.


Loans are credited to your student account each semester at the point you reach half-time status (4 or more hours). You can check your UNL To Do List in MyRED to see requirements and accepted financial aid. If your semester financial aid award exceeds your charges, a refund check will be mailed to you at your local address about 14 days after your aid is credited to your student account unless you enroll for DIRECT DEPOSIT of your check. Enroll for direct deposit via your MyRED account. If you have questions, contact the Financial Aid Office (402) 472-2030.

UNL holds three commencements per year – early May, mid August and late December. 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 and payment of $25 needs to be mailed together to Graduation Services (address below). Download the form.
  3. Send a copy of your Application for Graduation to the CBA Graduate Programs Office. We will then register you for GRBA 098 - MBA Assessment. GRBA 98 is comprised of two surveys and the Major Field Test. It is a zero (0) credit hour course, with a $30 fee that will appear in your MyRED statement. You will be emailed more instructions from the CBA Graduate Programs Office for completing this requirement once you are registered.
