When sending GRE or TOEFL scores, Nebraska's institution code is 6877 and a department code is not needed.

##### Application Deadlines for Mathematics

- For Financial Consideration: January 18 for Fall.
- Otherwise: Applications received after the deadline may be considered depending upon space/funding availability.

Application/admission is for entry in a specific term and year. Our academic year is divided into 3 terms: Fall (August-December), Spring (January-May), and Summer (multiple sessions May-August). *Some programs accept new students only in certain terms and/or years; if your desired entry term isn't mentioned here, you may want to consult the department for clarification.*

### Description

Students also have access to an excellent research library, a mathematical sciences database, and two computer laboratories with state-of-the-art computational facilities.

#### Cost of attendance

Cost differs from one student to another. For details see Tuition, Fees, and Funding or try our Cost Estimator.#### Courses and More

Admitted students will choose courses from the Course Catalog, typically in: During the first half of their coursework, students will work with an advisor to create a plan of study — one of the essential Steps to Degree Completion.### Faculty and research
