Online Undergraduate Course Schedule


The courses below are online undergraduate courses so visit the CASNR Undergraduate Resources webpage for additional details and forms. Visit our Master's of Science Degree page for a schedule of online Graduate courses by semester. Please note that graduate level-classes are listed at the 800 and 900 level. Crosslisted courses will list both an undergraduate & graduate number such as 4##/8##.  Please register for academic classes through MyRed.nebraska.edu using the registration procedures.

Many courses do not require textbooks as course material is delivered online through Blackboard - my.unl.edu; Canvas - canvas.unl.edu; eXtension - http://campus.extension.org; or the Plant & Soil Science eLibrary - http://passel.unl.edu/pages/. Through these online/virtual classrooms, students can: submit assignments and projects; access course syllabi, announcements, grades, and exams; and communicate with instructors and students via announcements, discussion boards and real-time chats.

Textbooks may or may not be required and will be listed on course webpages.
