Transfer Credit Process
Students can use the Transfer Equivalency Guide Transfer
Equivalency Guide to determine if direct equivalencies have already been established for their previous institution.
New international students transferring from institutions in which UNL does not have a partnership established may
need to have their transfer credit evaluated in order for the credit to count for a specific degree requirement.
Evaluation means that some courses taken at international institutions require an evaluator (professor) to review the
course syllabus. If no course syllabus is available, some professors might accept a course description, but a course
syllabus is always preferred. All Accounting courses needing evaluation should also include a copy of the table of contents
of the textbook used in the course along with a course syllabus. If approved, students may receive credit for their course.
If a course is not approved, a student may or may not receive credit. Not all courses need to be evaluated; only courses
that may apply to a UNL degree should be evaluated. This process could take a total of 1-2 months.
To get an international transfer course evaluated, please follow these steps:
- Collect copies of a course syllabus and/or course description (and a textbook table of contents for
accounting courses), written in English, for each class you would like to have evaluated. This may involve
contacting your previous institution for a copy of the syllabus and/or course description.
- Bring course syllabi, course descriptions, and a textbook table of contents for accounting courses, with you to UNL.
- Meet with a CBA Academic Advisor to begin the transfer credit evaluation process during the second or third
week of your first semester at UNL.
- Submit your course evaluation materials to the appropriate departmental evaluators.
- Wait to hear from the academic department by e-mail for the results of the evaluation process.
