Understanding your net id, nest and email

Your Net ID is sent to you during the Admissions acceptance process. It is your unique identifier and never changes. It consists of 3 letters and 5 numbers (Example: BLU12345). It appears on your student ID card. New students, please follow these instructions to activate your Creighton account. Your account gives you access to your NEST.

The NEST is your private web-based portal into all your business here at Creighton. It is where you retrieve information regarding your academic, financial aid and student account information 24/7. You will go to your NEST to register for classes, track your academic class work, accept and track your financial aid, see if your student account is paid, sign up for direct deposit for refunds, make payments electronically and more. You can also use this to update your personal information.

Your email becomes the official way that all offices on campus will contact you. Students will receive an e-mail from our office to let them know their award offer is ready for a response. We will also notify you by e-mail if revisions to an original award offer are made. Students will need to accept their aid package using the NEST. Any questions you have can be sent to: finaid@creighton.edu.

It is a good idea to check your email and NEST on a weekly basis. This becomes even more important once a tuition reservation deposit is made, time for class registration comes around and you have filed for financial aid consideration.
