Inspired by the success of last year's winterim sessions, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is offering a two-week Spring Pre-Session as part of a systemwide program to explore opportunities for future curricular innovation. Courses featured will allow students to:

  • apply skills or knowledge through focused application of knowledge and skills through, for example, case studies or client-based projects.
  • enhance career-readiness, such as learning statistical, coding, graphic media, or data management programs and applications or developing and practicing communication, organizational, and/or leadership skills.
  • explore grand challenge framework topics not typically offered during the regular semesters.

"Last year’s winterim sessions were a highly-successful, creative way to respond to travel-related risks brought about by the pandemic," said Executive Vice Chancellor Elizabeth Spiller. "The university remains dedicated to pursuing creative opportunities that allow students the flexibility to move forward successfully on their academic path."

The Spring Pre-Session runs Jan. 3-14, and most courses are one or two credit hours. Three-credit courses will overlap with the regular semester to meet all credit-hour requirements and are designed to not conflict with regularly scheduled spring semester coursework.

Students can find courses in MyRED by searching for "Pre-Session" in the session search field and add them to their shopping carts for priority registration, which begins Oct. 25. Classes are expected to fill quickly. Scholarship and financial aid options are available to qualifying students.
