Graduate Credit for Undergraduate Students

University policy allows an undergraduate student to take up to 12 graduate credit hours in the last year of an undergraduate degree program and apply those credits toward either the undergraduate degree program or a later graduate degree program, subject to individual approval.

Use this form to request approval for graduate-level coursework as an undergraduate student. Submissions automatically go to your instructor for initial approval and (if approved) then to Graduate Studies for final approval.

For additional information, contact Eva Bachman.

About This Graduate Course

See Schedule of Classes for course details.

Example: If your class is listed as "HIST 854-001 LEC (1234)" or "HIST 854, Class 1234, Section 001-LEC" the class number is 1234, NOT 001.
Program Level

About your level selection:

  • Either way, the course will be on the undergraduate transcript.
  • It is your responsibility to consult an academic advisor (at the level you select) to confirm that the credits will fit that program.
  • Selecting "graduate" (1) may impact undergraduate scholarships or financial aid and (2) does not ensure admission to a graduate program.

Use UNL Directory or NU Directory to confirm.

Check this box if instructor's email is unlisted or instructor is unspecified ("Staff") in class schedule.
