Military Credits

We want your transition to be as smooth as possible. Learn about different credits that can transfer to your degree at UNL.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln does grant collegiate credit for certain military experiences. In order to determine what academic credit may be granted, submit your DD form 214 (discharge from active duty) and transcripts or certificates for all military schooling or training to the Office of Admissions, 1410 Q Street.

We request that you submit this material with your application or as soon as possible within the first term of enrollment so that proper credit may be awarded.

NOTE: If this evaluation is not done in your first term at UNL, the VA office may terminate your benefits back to the beginning of your enrollment.

Copies of your DD form 214 (discharge from active duty) and transcripts/certificates for all military schooling or training should be submitted to the Office of Admissions, 1410 Q Street.
