Individuals who wish to enroll in expanded-campus classes may register via the web using MyBlue thru the first week of classes. Students may register for any UNK class that has been officially added to the schedule.
Initial registration after the first week of the semester (Fall or Spring) or after the first class day (Summer) is considered late and a $15 late fee will be charged. In order to process a late registration, students must have written permission from the instructor of each course for which they wish to register and they must complete their registration at the Registrar's Office, Founders Hall from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Tuition and all fees are due at the time of registration and failure to pay at that time will result in late charges and prepayment for future terms.
Beginning the third week of the semester or the third day of a summer class, students wishing to register must have permission from the course instructor, department chair, and the dean of the college for each class in which they plan to enroll. Students cannot register for full semester classes following the fourth week of the term.
Students who wish to cancel their registration may do so using MyBlue. See below, Withdrawal from UNK, for complete details and deadlines.
NOTE: At the point that the Web System confirms registration into a course, the student is considered officially enrolled. Failure to attend class meetings does not, in itself, constitute withdrawal from the class, nor does it absolve the student from making complete payment for all tuition and related fees associated with that course. Students who choose not to attend MUST drop all classes in MyBlue.
Students MUST file an official change of schedule form and complete the procedures outlined below in order to add classes to their registration. Students wanting to drop a class may do so in MyBlue through the mid-point of the class. Failure to attend class does NOT constitute a drop and does NOT cancel the student's registration or his/her obligation to pay all tuition and related fees for the course.
FALL AND SPRING SEMESTERS - Students may add classes using MyBlue through the first week of the semester (until 5:00 pm on Friday). After the first week of the semester, students must obtain an add form from the Registrar's Office, have the instructor sign the form and return it to the Registrar's Office for processing. Students wanting to drop a class may do so in MyBlue through the mid-point of the class.
A student dropping a course after the first week of a semester and any time prior to the end of the 9th week of that semester will be awarded a "W". For courses of duration other than an entire semester, a student dropping a course after the first day of the class and any time prior to the end of the mid-point of the class duration (e.g., the end of the 4th week of an 8-week course) will be awarded a "W". THE "W" WILL APPEAR ON THE STUDENT'S GRADE REPORT AND TRANSCRIPT.
SUMMER -Adding a class - Students may add classes using MyBlue through the Saturday before the summer term begins. After that date, students may continue to ADD classes using MyBlue through the beginning date of the class. By the second day of class, students need to obtain the signature of the instructor on an add form. Starting the 3rd day of class, students need to obtain signatures of the Instructor, Department Chair and Dean of the College on an add form. Add forms must be returned to the Registrar's Office for processing.
Students may not enroll in a class past the mid-point of the class. Classes designated "To Be Arranged" may be added up to the mid-point of the class with the Instructor's signature on an add form presented to the Registrar's Office for processing.
NOTE: At the point MyBlue confirms registration in a course, the student is considered officially enrolled. Failure to attend class does not constitute withdrawal from the class, nor does it absolve the student from making complete payment for all tuition and related fees associated with that course. Students who choose not to attend, MUST drop all classes in MyBlue.
SUMMER - Dropping a Class
Students may drop classes in MyBlue through the mid-point of the class. Classes cannot be dropped after the mid-point of the class.
Students will receive a "W" on their transcript (which indicates a withdrawal) for classes dropped after the start of the Summer term.
A failing grade (F) will be reported if a student stops attending class and neither officially withdraws from the course prior to the appropriate deadline nor establishes, prior to the end of the term and to the satisfaction of the instructor, that extenuating circumstances prevented completion of the course. If the instructor determines that such extenuating circumstances were present, an "I" (Incomplete) may be recorded on the student's grade report and transcript.
A STUDENT MAY NOT WITHDRAW FROM A COURSE AFTER THE mid-point of the class unless highly unusual, extenuating circumstances (beyond the student's control) are established to the satisfaction of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
NOTE: TO DROP A CLASS STUDENTS MUST USE MYBLUE TO PROCESS THE DROP. Failure to attend class does NOT constitute a drop and does NOT cancel the student's registration or his/her obligation to pay all tuition and related fees for the course.
A STUDENT MAY NOT WITHDRAW FROM A COURSE AFTER THE COURSE HAS ENDED OR THE SEMESTER/SESSION IN WHICH THE COURSE WAS TAKEN HAS ENDED.
A student wishing to withdraw from the university and all classes may do so via MyBlue through the mid-point of the class.
The deadlines for withdrawal are the same as those for dropping a class. Students withdrawing from UNK after the term has begun will receive a grade of "W" for all classes.
The official, sealed transcript(s) of students who transfer to UNK from another college or university are evaluated by the Registrar's Office for total semester credit hours transferable (66 semester credit hours maximum from a two-year institution) and for courses applicable to the UNK General Studies program requirements. When the student chooses a major and minor, he/she should request, through the Registrar's Office, an evaluation of the transfer transcript(s) by the appropriate UNK academic departments for determination of courses applicable to his/her UNK major and minor.
Grades of "C" or better must be earned for credit to be granted at UNK (except for coursework completed at another campus of the University of Nebraska.) ALL grades earned at UNL or UNO since July 1, 1991 are included in the student's cumulative GPA at UNK.
In addition to other undergraduate degree requirements, transfer students must complete a minimum of 32 semester credit hours of UNK courses.
NOTE: A minimum of 40 credit hours must be earned in junior-senior level courses satisfactorily completed at UNK or other 4-year colleges/universities granting Bachelors Degrees.
Students may repeat courses to improve their GPA or to update their skills. When a course is repeated, the latter grade stands and is factored in the GPA regardless of the grade received. However, a grade of “NC” (no credit) cannot be used to replace a letter grade previously earned. After the second grade is awarded, the first grade is removed from the student's grade point average. The original course and grade remain on the student's transcript with the notation "Repeat (Excluded from GPA)".
Whenever a student repeats a course for a better grade, he/she must notify the Office of Student Records and Registration. When notification is received prior to the end of the semester, the results of the repeated course will be reflected in the student’s final grade report. Credit can be issued only once for a repeated course.
Courses designed to be repeated, where additional hours may be earned, are not eligible for the re-registration option. Such courses include, but are not limited to, Independent Study, Practicum and Internships. Courses assigned a subtitle can only be considered for re-registration if the student enrolls in the course under the same subtitle.
Grades earned in equivalent courses taken at another campus of the University (UNL, UNO, UNMC) may be used to replace a grade earned at UNK. Only those courses identified as University equivalents by the academic departments and listed in the UN Equivalency Guide may be considered under this policy. No other substitutions will be allowed. Courses taken outside the University of Nebraska system cannot be used to replace a grade earned at UNK.
Questions regarding the re-registration option should be directed to the Office of Student Records and Registration.
On-line Re-Registered Course Form

Summer Overload Request Form
A senior student pursuing graduate coursework while completing an undergraduate degree is considered an undergraduate student. A student requiring 15 hours or fewer for the bachelor's degree, with an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or above and with written approval from their advisor may be allowed to register for graduate classes pending the approval of the Graduate Dean. However, the student will not be allowed to register for more than 6 semester hours of graduate courses in any semester, and the maximum load of undergraduate-graduate hours may be no more than 12 hours. Students must also meet all prerequisites of the graduate course and obtain the permission of the instructor to enroll. Graduate courses taken to complete requirements for the bachelor's degree may not be used subsequently to satisfy requirements for a graduate degree. However, graduate courses not applied on the baccalaureate degree may be applied toward a graduate degree. No more than 9 hours of graduate coursework may be completed prior to completion of the undergraduate degree.
