Final Credit Evaluation

1. Ensure that your transcript is sent directly to the Global Experiences Office.

Upon receipt of your transcript, Global Experiences 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 Global Experiences 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.


To receive credit you will need an official transcript from an accredited institution displaying coursework, letter grades and credit amounts. For most 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:

Global Experiences Office
Attn: Operations Coordinator
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Louise Pound Hall 130
512 N 12th Street
Lincoln, NE 68588-0314

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 program, inform the Global Experiences Office, and your academic advisor. Credit will be processed as quickly as possible, however, graduation may be delayed.
