Students who wish to complete an online program at the University of Nebraska must meet the same admission requirements as those individuals attending on campus. Minimum requirements must be met and some programs have additional requirements.
Some students who do not meet admission requirements can be accepted into a program based on their academic record. An advisor will review their transcripts and work with those students to identify any courses that must be taken as a pre-requisite to admission.
General Admission Requirements:
Undergraduate Programs: To qualify for admission, a student must be a graduate of an accredited high school, or equivalent, and must either have graduated in the top half of his or her class or have achieved an ACT composite score of 20 [enhanced] or greater, or an SAT total score of 950 or greater. (These requirements may not apply if you graduated from high school prior to 1997.)
Graduate Programs: Admission to graduate programs is determined by the graduate studies office and the department offering the program following a review of each student’s application, transcripts and other required information.
All Programs: To view specific requirements for the program in which you are interested, click on the program you want to apply for and view the Admissions tab. Request more information or contact us if you still have questions.
