Can I get a list of which classes will transfer and what classes I have left to complete for my major?
Determining how credits transfer can vary from student to student. The first step to finding out how your credits will be counted at Nebraska and what requirements you have yet to fulfill is to make an appointment with your Academic Advisor to go over your degree audit. We encourage students to meet with their advisors early and often to ensure on-time graduation.
Students can also contact Kenneth Moss, Academic Transfer Coordinator at 402-472-9455 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Where can I go for academic support help (tutoring, mentoring etc.)?
The Study Stop program offers free tutoring for Nebraska students Monday through Thursday nights from 7-9 pm in the Hall Learning Commons. Check the schedule containing the subject areas for which tutoring is available each night. If you feel you need more in-depth tutoring, contact the department to find out if there is anyone available (one-on-one tutoring usually comes at a fee not covered by the university).
You might also be able to find help at one of the many subject-specific resource centers around campus:
- Chemistry- 227 Hamilton Hall
- Computer Science & Engineering-12 Avery Hall
- Math- 13B Avery Hall
- Modern Languages-302 Burnett

The Center for Academic Success and Transition (CAST) (located in Love South 127) offers free Academic Success Coaching for all Nebraska students to help establish effective studying and time management strategies. Schedule to meet with a coach through Student Success Hub at my.unl.edu.

What about parking/bus access for commuter students?
Information about all things transportation can be found at https://parking.unl.edu. You can also stop by in person in their office located at 625 Stadium Drive or call 402-472-1800 with questions.
How can I get connected to other students?
The Transfer Peer Mentor Program matches new transfer students with a student that transferred to Nebraska and has attended at least two semesters. Transfer Peer Mentors communicate with new transfers via email and plan small group events. Your mentor can help you adjust to life at Nebraska, get connected to other transfer students, and identify other resources that may be of use to you. To be matched with a Transfer Peer Mentor, complete the brief form at https://success.unl.edu/transfer/transfer-peer-mentors/match
You can also get connected to other students who have similar academic or personal interests by joining a Recognized Student Organization! We now have an organization just for transfer students. The Transfer Assistance Community (TAC) is excited to have you join us! Go to https://involved.unl.edu/student-organizations to find out about TAC and other student organizations.
Where can I search for scholarships and find out about financial aid?
