Email is the best way to contact Peggy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Elizabeth (email@example.com) throughout the summer months. You may also contact Peggy or Elizabeth by calling the Health Science Programs Office at 308-865-8260.
It is the student's responsibility to report any courses not taken at UNK to their advisor!
First, make sure you tell your advisor that you have college credits you are planning to transfer to UNK. Next, be sure to tell your advisor the names of the courses that you have taken and are planning to transfer. Finally, make sure that you have an official transcript from the institution granting credit sent to the Office of Student Records and Registration at UNK. If you have further questions regarding transfer credit, you may contact the Office of Student Records and Registration at 308-865-8527 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
