In order to process the promotional activity waiver request in a timely manner and not jeopardize a student-athlete’s eligibility status, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln reserves the right to deny any and all requests not submitted three weeks prior to the activity date. Also, in the interest of University of Nebraska-Lincoln student-athlete’s academic and athletic commitments, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln reserves the right to deny any and all requests for activities that do not occur within a 60 mile radius of Lincoln, Nebraska, or those requested during the first two and last two weeks of each semester. Requests will be accepted during the summer months, but are often difficult to accommodate due to the time committed for accelerated class loads with extended meeting times, along with student-athletes’ summer employment, internships, and workouts.
