Information and links for Students Transferring to UNO
Any student who completes the Liberal Arts Academic Transfer Associate of Arts Degree from Metropolitan Community College with a GPA of 2.0 or higher is eligible to transfer to UNO without having to complete any additional general education requirements.
The application for admission to University of Nebraska at Omaha can be completed online. The admission deadlines for the university are Aug. 1 for the fall semester, Dec. 1 for the spring (January) semester and July 1 for summer.
Students can be admitted into UNO in two ways:
Freshman - all high school requirements must be met, and ACT scores are required.
Transfer - students complete 18 quarter/12 semester hours prior to applying to UNO. Therefore, high school deficiencies do not need to be made up and ACT scores are not required.
Please note that there are separate requirements for International Students. International Students should contact the International Studies department at UNO at 402-554-2293 for admission information and requirements.
Also note that students whose native language is not English will be required to take a TOEFL exam for entrance into UNO. Completing English courses at Metropolitan Community College will not waive this requirement.
