If you have not taken a graduate course at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the past three semesters, you need to enroll as either a non-degree-seeking, post-baccalaureate graduate student or as a degree-seeking master's student via the Graduate Studies application for admission. The $50 fee is not waived. You will enroll in courses in MyRED once officially admitted (see Step 4).
Plan your schedule from our Course Catalog. Write down the Course Number, Title and Class Number for each course you would like to take. Registering via Class Number in MyRED is the fastest route.
The NMSSI fellowship application is for tuition fellowships for current Nebraska classroom teachers. The application on Google Forms is now open.
Through May 31, the NMSSI Newcomers Program awards a $200 fellowship to teachers who are taking an NMSSI course for the first time (some restrictions apply). To be considered for the Newcomers program, simply respond “no” to the NMSSI Fellowship application question that asks if you have previously taken any NMSSI courses!
After Steps 1 and 2, or if you have taken a course in the past year as an active UNL student, register for class via MyRed
by searching for the Class Number (four or five digits) of the course you wish to take. New graduate students will need to set up a password with TrueYou.
The goal of the Nebraska Math and Science Summer Institutes is to offer teachers of math and science intellectually rich graduate coursework that will enhance their ability to offer their students challenging courses and curricula. NMSSI courses are designed with teachers' schedules in mind.
Graduate courses for elementary, middle-level and secondary teachers of mathematics and science will be delivered in-person, online, and via web conferencing in Summer 2022. Just as much of the nation is expected to shelter in place, we want to encourage teachers to “learn in place” if in-person courses are not an option. NMSSI courses will be offered utilizing several instructional models that will support teachers in different ways. Some will be traditional online courses (i.e., asynchronous) offered over a five- or eight-week summer session. Others will use a live or synchronous approach, with most or all instruction concentrated during a two-week period.
To make the NMSSI professional development opportunities more affordable, we have asked the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to offer tuition discounts to Nebraska teachers who take our summer courses. Nebraska teachers qualify for a Tuition Fellowship of 20 percent of resident tuition for many of these graduate courses. Teachers may apply for additional fellowships to help cover the remaining tuition costs. Fellowships are available through the NMSSI to eligible Nebraska teachers while funds are available.
