Claim your NUID/TrueYou password
The University of Nebraska and the Nebraska State College Systems (except UNMC) use a common Student, Faculty and Staff ID number known as the NUID -- Nebraska Unique ID. This process will tell you what your NUID number is and allow you to ‘claim’ it by creating a TrueYou password and answering challenge questions to help you reset your TrueYou password if needed. The combination of your NUID and TrueYou password is referred to as your TrueYou account.
This process will tell you your NUID number and allow you to ‘claim’ it by creating a TrueYou password and answering challenge questions to help you reset your TrueYou password later if needed.
First, do you know your NUID?
This claim process uses your Social Security Number. If you do not have a SSN or did not provide your SSN to your institution, contact your campus helpdesk for assistance.
UNMC Students, Staff, and Faculty
This process will not work for you because TrueYou uses your NUID as the primary login ID, not your UNMC shortname/NETID.
Prospective Student
When applying for admission an NUID and TrueYou credentials are created for you. Using this credentialing process is not needed. If you have forgotten your password you can use the 'Forgot Your Password' button on the TrueYou homepage. Otherwise, please visit the website of the college you wish to apply to and use their online admission application process.”
Current Student
If you are currently enrolled for classes you should already have an NUID and a TrueYou account. If you don't know your password please return to the TrueYou login page and click the 'Forgot Your Password' button or contact your campus helpdesk by using the Request Help link on the TrueYou homepage.
Former Students and Alumni
If you are unsure whether you already have a TrueYou account created, this process will determine if you are eligible. Please note that creating a TrueYou account only gives you default 'guest' access in your school's SIS portal. You will need to contact your school to get the authorization you need.
Current Faculty and Staff
All current faculty and staff have a TrueYou account created automatically though your TrueYou account may not be claimed. Please use this self-credentialing process to claim your account if necessary.
Former Faculty and Staff
If you no longer work for the University, but did receive an NUID you can use this self-credentialing process to create your TrueYou account. If you don't know if you have an NUID or not please answer 'No' on this page to search for your NU ID. Please note that this process will not work for UNMC faculty, staff, or students because TrueYou uses your NUID as the primary login ID, not your UNMC shortname/NETID.
