Transfer of Credit Hours - Undergraduate
Students transferring to UNK from another post-secondary institution should be aware of the following policies and procedures regarding the award of transfer credit.
* Transcripts from non-accredited institutions, technical-trade schools, proprietary schools, industry-sponsored schools, etc. are reviewed by the UNK academic departments offering courses similar to the courses stated on the transcripts.
* The UNK academic departments recommend to the Registrar's Office which courses or combination of courses to accept in transfer, the semester credit hours to award, and the course equivalency, if any, at UNK.
* UNK reserves the right to require successful completion of specific UNK courses and/or up to two semesters of UNK course work before considering/granting transfer credit from such institutions.
Within the University System:
Kearney State College officially merged with the University of Nebraska on July 1, 1991. Since the summer term of 1991, all courses and grades taken at UNL, UNO, & UNMC which are transferred to UNK are recorded on the transcript and are figured into the cumulative GPA at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Students can re-register for courses previously taken at another campus in the University of Nebraska System in order to improve their grade. Students should consult the UNK Transfer Guide and refer to the UNL and UNO equivalencies listed before registering for courses. Only courses specified in the equivalency guide will replace courses previously taken at another campus in the University of Nebraska System.
Students who attended a foreign university or college and who wish to have their credits considered for transfer to UNK must provide to the Registrar's Office:
The Registrar's Office will work with appropriate academic departments to evaluate credits for transfer when all documentation has been submitted. Evaluations will only be done for students who have been fully admitted into a degree seeking program at UNK.
Official Transcripts are sent to the Office of Admissions and then forwarded to the Registrar's Office for evaluation. The Registrar's Office evaluates the transfer work for courses applicable to the UNK General Studies Program requirements. If the student has indicated a specific major, the official transcript is forwarded on to the appropriate academic department to be evaluated for courses that may apply to the student's major/minor. When the evaluation is complete, an email is sent to the student's UNK email address notifying them that all transfer credit has been entered to their student record in MyBLUE and to their degree audit. The student's degree audit will summarize institutional requirements, the General Studies requirements, the student's designated major/minor requirements and will indicate how the transfer credit applies to these requirements.
Transfer students who wish to receive an evaluation and degree audit prior to registration at UNK, must submit an official, sealed transcript(s) from all previous colleges or universities attended to the Admissions Office at least 30 days prior to the registration date. The evaluation states the total semester credit hours transferred, the transfer courses that satisfy UNK program requirements, and the courses/credit hours which need to be completed/earned at UNK. If enrolled in classes at another institution within the month preceding the registration date, the student must request that institution to mail a final transcript at the end of the term. Evaluations will be provided for all new transfer students at their scheduled Transfer Day program. Students who cannot attend a Transfer Day and wish to receive an evaluation should contact the Registrar's Office. A complete evaluation will be sent to all new transfer students prior to early registration for the subsequent term.
