You should have received two emails during the application process which included your eight-digit number known as your NUID and a second containing a temporary password, login instructions for TrueYou, and instructions for claiming your My.UNL account. Once you've been admitted to NCTA, you are eligible for a My.UNL account (this is the account you will use to login to Canvas). Visit the TrueYou website
  2. After logging in to TrueYou, set the password for your My.UNL account and remember this username and password as it will be used for NCTA-specific services.  Click the link below for step-by-step instructions on claiming your My.UNL account.
