Transfer Credit Policies and Procedures
Requirements for Transferring Credits
Before UNO can award a transfer credit, the following requirements must be met:
- Only college level courses with a grade of "C-" or better, CR (Credit), S (Satisfactory), and P (Pass) will be accepted for transfer from a regionally accredited two- and four-year college or university. (The College of Business Administration requires a grade of "C" or better for transfer.)
- All international transcripts are reviewed for comparability and appropriateness for academic transfer.
- All credit hours transferable are converted to semester credit hours (e.g., one-quarter hour equals 2/3 of a semester credit).
- Grades earned at another institution do not become a part of the student's UNO cumulative grade point average, unless earned at another University of Nebraska campus:
- University of Nebraska Lincoln (UNL)
- University of Nebraska Kearney (UNK)
- University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC)
- A maximum of 64 semester credit hours may be transferred from a two-year/junior or community college. (The College of Engineering may accept up to 66 semester hours.)
