Graduate transfer credits must be earned at another accredited college or university and must be approved by both the Academic Department and the Office of Graduate Studies and Research before they can be applied on a Master's or Specialist's Degree program. For programs requiring 30 to 59 credit hours, no more than nine semester hours of graduate work may be transferred from outside of the University of Nebraska system (UNO, UNL, UNMC). For programs exceeding 59 hours, no more than fifteen semester hours of graduate work may be transferred from outside the University of Nebraska system. These limits do not apply to graduate course work completed at any campus of the University of Nebraska. However, under no circumstances will a student transfer in more than half of their program combining University of NE hours and the hours allowed outside of the University system. Transfer grades for courses outside the University system must be 3.0 or higher (B- is not accepted). Transfer grades from UNO, UNL or UNMC must be 2.0 or higher (C- is not accepted). Transfer credits will not be applied to a student's program of study until an approved Change in Program of Study form and official transcripts have been received in the Office of Graduate Studies and Research.
