Frequently Asked Questions: Student Accounts
124 Canfield Administration
- Where can I view my student bill?
Bills are posted on MyRED. Go to Student Center - Finances - My Bills. Bills can be viewed before the 25th of the month and are due the 12th of the month (regardless if the 12th is a weekend or holiday).
- What is the best way to pay my student bill?
The best way to pay is the electronic check payment option online via MyRED. Go to My Bills - Make A Payment button. The electronic check payment option is FREE, easy and convenient. To avoid a non-refundable $30 return payment fee, verify your checking or savings routing & bank account numbers and that you have sufficient funds before making a payment.
- Can I pay with a credit card?
Yes. MasterCard, Discover, and AmericanExpress branded cards are accepted on MyRED only. The Cashiers Office cannot accept payment by credit cards. A 2.75% non refundable convenience fee will be added to payments made by Mastercard, Discover, or American Express credit, debit or check cards. Visa is not a payment option.
- Can I mail a check or use my bank'?s bill paying option?
Yes, but it is much more convenient to pay electronically.
Checks can be make payable to: University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Include a copy of the payment coupon from the printable version of the bill from MyRED and indicate the student's name and 8-digit ID number on the check. Send checks to: UNL Bursar, Payment Processing Center, P.O. Box 2119, Omaha, NE 68103-0119
You can use your bank?s bill pay option, but keep in mind that bill pay takes around five days and there is often a fee for using bill pay.

Frequently Asked Questions: NCard
NCard Office/Union Copy Center
Room 121, Main Level NE Union
- What is the difference between an NCard Campus Account vs. Wells Fargo Account?
For an NCard Campus Account, purchases made on campus using an NCard with an activated NCard Campus Account appear on a student's Consolidated Bill. With a Wells Fargo Account, you elect to add the Wells Fargo account feature and have the card linked at a Wells Fargo Bank. The NCard will become a PIN-based debit card, requiring a balance in a Wells Fargo bank account to cover purchases. It is not a credit card.
- How do I view my NCard charges?
NCard charges can be viewed and paid for through the consolidated bill on MyRED.
- What is the spending limit on the NCard?
There is a $300 spending limit to purchase goods and services per month using your NCard Campus Account.
- Can I buy textbooks with my NCard?
The NCard can be used to purchase your textbooks. The cost for textbooks does not go against your $300 spending limit, which means you can purchase your textbooks without the worry of maxing out your spending limit.
