What is an NU ID?

Nebraska University Identification numbers (NU ID's) are provided to students and faculty/staff at the University of Nebraska at Omaha for conducting business. The NU ID is a unique number within the University of Nebraska and Nebraska State College systems, so that a student or faculty/staff member will have the same NU ID on any of those campuses.

Key things to remember about your NU ID:
  • Your NU ID and password together authorize the holder to access information that is not considered public information by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
  • Faculty and staff who have taken, or are taking classes have only one NU ID.
  • NU ID information WILL NOT be released via telephone or FAX.
  • NU ID information will NOT be given to anyone but the student, faculty or staff member.
  • Retain your NU ID even if you are not enrolled in courses. Along with your NU ID password, it allows you to access mavlink and make transcript requests.

What is an NU ID password?

Passwords are assigned to NU ID's for authentication to University systems. NU ID passwords are managed by the University of Nebraska TrueYou Identity Management System. TrueYou is a system that helps you maintain a single password and NU ID across the University of Nebraska and Nebraska State College systems. If you are a student, faculty or staff at one or more of these institutions, your NU ID and password for each campus will be the same.
