TRANSFER OF CREDIT
- Only original, sealed transcript(s) from each college/university (accredited as a
post-secondary institution by North Central* or other similar regional agencies) previously
attended will be considered by the Registrar's Office for the award of transfer
Transcripts from nonaccredited institutions, technical-trade schools, proprietary schools,
industry-sponsored schools are reviewed by the UNK academic departments
offering courses similar, if any, to the courses stated on the transcripts.
The UNK academic departments recommend to the Registrar's Office which courses or
combination of courses, if any, to accept in transfer, the semester credit hours to award,
and the course equivalency, if any, at UNK.
UNK reserves the right to require successful completion of specific UNK courses and/or up
to two semesters of UNK course work before considering/granting transfer credit from such
- Credit hours earned with a minimum grade of "C" at institutions outside of the
University of Nebraska will be accepted in transfer. All grades and credit earned at any
campus of the University of Nebraska since July 1, 1991, will be transferred to UNK and
applied to the student's University grade point average.
- All credit hours transferable are converted to semester credit hours (e.g., one quarter
hour equals 2/3 of a semester credit hour).
- Grades earned at institutions outside the University of Nebraska do not become a part of
the student's UNK cumulative grade point average.
- Total semester credit hours transferred from each institution previously attended are
recorded on the student's UNK transcript. (Note: A maximum of 66 semester credit
hours may be transferred from two-year junior or community colleges.)
- UNK does not issue copies of another institution's transcript.
- Applicability of courses (for which credit hours are transferred to UNK) is determined
(a) UNK Registrar's Office - General Studies Program;
(b) UNK academic departments - majors/minors/teaching endorsements.
- Credit awarded at another college or university for course work completed in a
nontraditional manner, e.g., through Advanced Placement programs (CEEB), proficiency tests
(CLEP or comprehensive examinations administered by an academic department), or personal
experience, must be validated by the UNK Registrar's Office and/or appropriate UNK
academic departments. That is, such credits do not transfer automatically, and the student
must furnish official score reports, etc., for consideration. (CLEP score requirement:
50th percentile or better for UNK to award credit. Credit awarded for CLEP subject
examinations only. UNK does not award credit for CLEP general examinations.)
- A maximum of 12 semester credit hours in correspondence courses and 6 semester credit
