Unique Situations and Requirements
You may have unique circumstances as a newly admitted graduate student. We're here to help!
- International Students
- Non-Degree Seeking Students
- Provisional Admission
- Military-Affiliated Students
- Admitted, But Deciding Not To Enroll
- For international students in need of a student visa: All official transcripts/course-by-course transcript evaluations, exam scores, copy of your passport, and a completed financial affidavit are required before Visa (I-20) documents are issued.
- Limited Express Non-Degree admission status allows students to take classes for one term without the submission of an official degree transcript. If you have an Express Non-Degree hold on your account, you will need to provide an official degree transcript showing conferral a bachelor’s or other advanced degree prior to future enrollments.
- If you receive an error when trying to enroll, you may need to retrieve a permission number from the department/school in which the course is offered. Please note that some classes may not be open to non-degree seeking students.
- If you were admitted provisionally because your degree was in-progress when you applied for admission, you will notice that your account has a future semester hold for a final transcript. In order to make sure that your student file is complete, we do require a final, official transcript/course-by-course transcript evaluation showing complete coursework and conferral of your degree. Official transcripts/evaluations can be sent electronically through Parchment or National Student Clearinghouse, or can be mailed to the following address:
UNO Office of Graduate Studies
6001 Dodge St, EAB 203
Omaha, NE 68182-0209
- In order to be considered official, the record(s) must be received directly from the issuing institution or evaluation company.
- The UNO Office of Military and Veteran Services supports easy access to campus and community resources for military-connected students.
- While the application fee is non-refundable, you do have the option to request a deferral to a future semester. Please note that, upon approval from the Graduate Program Chair (GPC) of your program, you may defer your admission for up to two terms.
