We are writing to let you know of a security breach that may affect your personal information.
On Wednesday night, May 23, a security breach of the University of Nebraska’s student information system, was detected. The system contains Social Security numbers, date of birth and address for current and past students, and also for students who applied to the University of Nebraska but did not enroll.
If you applied for federal financial aid through the FAFSA process and identified one of the University of Nebraska campuses (UNL, UNO, UNK, UNMC, NCTA) to receive the results in the last three years, your personal information such as Social Security number and date of birth is stored in the University of Nebraska’s student information system. You may have been required to include parent data on the FAFSA as a part of the application process. If so, their information is included as well in our system. A small number of individuals also had bank account information associated with their account; those individuals have already been notified.
1. We recommend that you contact one of the three primary credit reporting agencies to place a free Initial Security Alert (90-day) to your credit report. This can be done online or via phone and will alert you to any attempt to establish or extend credit in your name. The three companies are TransUnion (“Initial Fraud Alert”) (800) 680-7289, Experian (“Initial Security Alert”) (888) 397-3742 or Equifax (“Initial 90-day Fraud Alert”) (800) 525-6285. You need only register with one agency and the others will be alerted.
