Many students who enroll in the University of Nebraska High School are not associated with a school or learning center. Students learning in an independent environment may need someone to help them stay on task or to motivate them, sometimes on a daily basis.

UNHS recommends a parent/guardian or other support person review the course introduction for each course and work with the student to establish a timeline for course completion. Most courses are structured to be completed in an 18 week time frame. Students have one year from the date the enrollment is processed to complete the course. Minimum course completion is five weeks from the date UNHS receives the first graded assignment for the course.
