Final Credit Evaluation

1. Ensure that your transcript is sent directly to the Education Abroad Office.

Upon receipt of your transcript, Education Abroad staff will prepare the Request for Departmental Evaluation U.S. Institution Transfer Credit form or the Request for Departmental Evaluation International Transfer Credit form, depending on the institution granting credit, by completing Sections 1 and 2.

2. Review Sections 1 and 2 for accuracy.

You will receive instructions via email from Education Abroad staff regarding the completion of these forms.

3. Take the printed form with Sections 1 and 2 completed along with course descriptions and/or syllabi to the designated transfer credit evaluator.

The evaluator will determine the equivalent UNL course/subject and number of credit hours, and complete Section 4 of the form. Afterward, the evaluator will forward the signed form to their college’s dean’s office or advising center. The college will complete Section 5 and send the completed form to the Office of Admissions for final processing.

4. Check the status of your transfer credit using your Degree Audit in MyRED.

If you have questions about how or whether the transfer credits meet a particular requirement for graduation, ACE, or your major/minor, please contact your academic advisor.

Transcripts

To receive credit you will need an official transcript from an accredited institution displaying coursework, letter grades and credit amounts. For most Education Abroad programs and affiliated programs, this arrangement has been made for you. If your program requests you to fill out a form or is unsure of where to send the transcript upon completion of your program, the address is:

Education Abroad Office
Attn: Rebecca Baskerville
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Love South 110
Lincoln, NE 68588-4107
USA

There is no single typical timeline for your credit to be posted to your UNL record. The amount of time it will take varies widely based on country and program, several weeks to several months after your return is normal. If you plan to graduate within one semester of completing your education abroad, inform the EAO, and your academic advisor. Credit will be processed as quickly as possible, however, graduation may be delayed.
