ADMISSION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS
Students attending another college or university in which they attempted hours after high school graduation are considered transfer applicants. A complete
application must be submitted before any decision will be made concerning the
admissibility of the applicant, as well as the evaluation of transfer credit.
Students may not omit or disregard any part of a previous college record, whether part or
full-time, with or without degree objectives, whether or not credit has been granted, or
whether or not they desire to transfer credit. Failure to disclose a complete collegiate
record may result in dismissal from UNK.
- Transfer students are expected to satisfactorily complete the core course requirements,
either in high school or in their previous post-secondary studies. Students
will be required to take UNK courses in the areas of their deficiencies.
- Prospective students should be eligible to return to the institution last attended.
Those who have been suspended or dismissed from other colleges or universities for
personal or academic reasons may not be considered for admission until they are eligible
to return to their previous institution. The official record should contain evidence of
honorable dismissal from the last school attended.
- Applicants are expected to have a cumulative grade point average of "C" (2.0)
earned at accredited institutions to be eligible for admission. Transfer students admitted
on probation will have one semester to meet UNK academic standards. All course work below
the level of "C" will be considered unsatisfactory and nontransferable.
- Transfer students from any of the other University of Nebraska campuses who desire to
make a permanent change to UNK must complete an application for admission and a
"change of campus" form to have their records transferred to UNK.
- All visiting students from any of the University of Nebraska campuses must submit a
completed "Inter-Campus" application form. Students on suspension from another
campus are not eligible to enroll.
- Transfer students are required to submit a completed Student Health Record (provided in
a special mailing) which must include results of a recent physical exam and month and year
dates of all child and adult vaccinations. See Health Services information for more
- Full Standing - Indicates all application materials have been received,
cumulative grade point requirement (C or 2.0) was met, and applicant left previous
accredited institution in good standing.
- Admitted by Review - This status may indicate that applicant's academic
background does not meet admission standards. Probation transfer students with less than a 2.0 may be
admitted on probation to UNK. Students admitted on probation may be
required to participate in designated support activities provided
by selected faculty and staff.
- Provisional - Indicates part of application requirements are missing. Generally,
provisional acceptance is reserved for students who are currently attending another
institution and transcripts are partial or show work in progress. Provisionally admitted
students must meet necessary requirements prior to registration for any succeeding
Transfer students shall submit the completed application for admission with the admissions
application fee. In addition, the following procedures shall be completed: College
Transcripts - One official transcript from each college attended must be submitted even
though no credit may have been earned at an institution. Work summarized from several
colleges on one transcript is not acceptable. High School Transcript - This record is
required from all transfer students.
Transfer students should submit their application no later than four weeks prior to the
beginning of the term in which admission is requested. A Work in Progress Report may be
requested to support the application when a student is currently enrolled at another
