Unconditional/Provisional Admission

Unconditional Admission may be granted to a student, after reviewing their complete admission application, whose record includes at least the following:

  • Certification of a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution;
  • Documentation through official transcript using a 4.0 grade point scale of having earned at least:
    • a 3.5 in communication undergraduate work, and
    • either a 3.0 overall undergraduate average or a 3.25 average in the last half of undergraduate credit hours, and
    • inclusion of at least 15 undergraduate semester hours of appropriate courses in communication arts and sciences, including sufficient advanced upper division preparation in the area of graduate concentration.

Provisional Admission may be granted for reasons of experience, maturity or other circumstances to a student who does not meet the unconditional admission standards. In no case may a student be admitted who does not meet UNO Graduate College provisional admission standards. If granted provisional admission, the student must complete a graduate level communication seminar during the first 12 hours of course work with a grade of "B" (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or higher.
