Previously Approved Transfer Credit

Previously Approved Transfer Credit

Students participating in education abroad have the opportunity to earn many different types of credit from other institutions that can count toward their UNL degree. To help students and advisors choose the program and course of study right for them, below is a link to a list of courses students have taken abroad at other institutions and how those courses came back to UNL. This list is intended for informational purposes only and is not intended to guarantee any type of credit to students or to replace the normal pre-departure credit evaluation process.
