I am applying for English Language Learning only. I will not be pursuing a degree.

I have met English proficiency and want to pursue a college degree.

I have NOT met English proficiency as stated above but intend to pursue a bachelor's degree. Students planning to meet English proficiency prior to admission must have official score reports submitted to UNK. If you are applying for Fall official scores must be received my May 15, scores for Spring must be received by October 15, and scores for summer must be received by February 15. If English proficiency is not provided by the date required, students will be admitted to the English Language Learning program or will be deferred to the next semester. Once the proficiency is achieved, students will be transitioned into an undergraduate degree program.
I am an International Exchange or Study Abroad Student.
