3. Submit Official Transcripts and Test Scores
Request official high school transcript be sent to UNO. Visit your school's website for transcript request information or contact them directly. If you have completed 24 or more transferable semester hours from a regionally accredited collegiate institution following high school graduation, you are considered to have met the high school core requirements that are required for admission.
Contact UNO Undergraduate Admissions with any questions at email@example.com.
Request official college transcripts from each institution at which you earned credit while in high school or prior to attending UNO. All post-secondary transcripts are required whether credit was earned or not. Failure to provide information regarding all post-secondary academic work attempted or completed will be considered fraudulent and may result in possible withdrawal of admission or dismissal from the university.
NOTE: Hand-carried/student-submitted transcripts will not be accepted. They must be sent directly from each academic institution via their official transcript service to UNO Undergraduate Admissions.
If your school uses an electronic transcript service, please send electronic transcripts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
