- A minimum total of 125 semester hours must be earned, of which 40 hours must be in 300
or 400 (Junior/Senior) level courses. Such courses must be taken at a four-year college or
university. Courses with numbers lower than 100 will not count toward any degree program.
- A minimum of 32 semester hours applicable to the selected degree program must be earned
- Correspondence study applicable to any undergraduate degree is limited to a maximum of
12 semester hours, regardless of source or institution awarding the correspondence course
- Graduation is dependent upon a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 "C"
considering all courses taken at any University of Nebraska campus. This minimum GPA must
also be earned in all courses needed to fulfill competency requirements within a
comprehensive major, or within the major and minor programs of study, or within the
endorsement areas in teacher education programs. Individual departments, however, may
establish higher minimum standards.
- Students must complete a minimum of 45 hours of General
Studies courses and must complete all requirements for their major/minor and
- Students wishing to earn a second bachelors degree may do so only upon completion of 30
additional hours beyond the minimum required for the first degree.
- Since all degrees require at least one mathematics course, it is strongly recommended
that students start taking their mathematics courses no
later than the second semester of their freshman year.
- All students must complete 12 hours of writing intensive and 6 hours of cultural
diversity courses. Students should expect to complete the majority of these hours within
their individual degree program.
- Writing Intensive Courses: Students are required to complete 12 hours of
coursework designated to further develop writing skills. In general, writing intensive
courses (1) provide students with the opportunity to revise their written work in order to
develop their writing skills and (2) use a grading system in which a significant portion
of the student's grade is based on written work. Courses which meet this requirement are
designated WI in the class schedule. NOTE: ENG 101 and ENG 102 do not apply to this
Cultural Diversity Courses: Students are required to complete six
hours of coursework which are designed to enhance an understanding of cultural diversity.
In general, cultural diversity courses expose students to the experiences and values of
groups and cultures which have been underrepresented in portrayals of
American life. Courses which meet this
requirement are designated CD in the class schedule.
