Transcripts
Grades posted to a UNMC student transcript may be changed only upon request of the faculty member who is the instructor of record for the course for which the grade was awarded or by order of the appropriate dean upon action of the academic unit’s evaluation appeals committee. Only the corrected grade will be shown on the transcript.  All dismissals and withdrawals are posted on the transcript along with the date of the action.

UNMC Commencement/Graduation
UNMC awards degrees in May, August and December.  Formal ceremonies are held in May (Kearney, Norfolk, Lincoln, Omaha and Scottsbluff) and December (Omaha).  Further detail and the UNMC Commencement Policies can be found here.

The Academic Records Office includes the areas of registration and records.  Academic Records creates and maintains the permanent record for each student; processes student registrations, drops/adds, withdrawals and grades; and coordinates graduation activities.

Goals

  • To recruit a diverse pool of applicants for all UNMC programs which includes students who are first generation with financial needs, have traditional or nontraditional backgrounds, or demonstrate a sincere interest in working in underserved communities.
  • To provide a wide range of independent initiatives aimed at identifying, motivating, and preparing college and pre-college level students to pursue careers in the health sciences.
  • To initiate and participate in collaborative programs at Nebraska higher education institutions and with professional and community groups to establish pathways for individuals to learn more about UNMC. 
  • To provide a university experience that is student-centered and focused on meeting students’ needs.

STUDENT ACCOUNTS

Room 2014, Student Life Center

The UNMC Office of Student Accounts website provides many answers to frequently asked questions.

Student Accounts is responsible for coordinating the billing and collection of tuition/fee payments, collection of rent payments, collection of all other necessary service charges and deposits, and maintenance of all necessary records.

Tuition is calculated approximately two weeks prior to the beginning of the term.  If applicable, financial aid is applied to student accounts ten days prior to the start of the term.  Refunds are generated directly from the Nebraska State Treasurers Office and either mailed to the students billing address or direct deposit to student’s checking account as directed by the student.

Payment in full is required in accordance with the payment Due Date shown on the billing statement. The University of Nebraska Medical Center accepts cash, personal check, money order, cashier’s check and Visa/MasterCard.  There is a service fee of 2.75% on all credit card transactions. Checks must be made payable to UNMC for the full amount.  Students may also pay their bills on-line through My Records.  We offer e-check as a free service and again credit card payments will be assessed 2.75% service fee.

Students may not pay on another student’s account via credit card unless both parties are present at the Student Accounts office at the time of the transaction.

If a payment is past the due date shown on the billing statement, there will be a $100 late fee assessed and added to the total bill due.  This includes payments made through the mail that have a postmark later than the due date.  The student’s university file will then be placed on hold.  Students, who are unable to pay by the Due Date through no personal fault, may request a waiver of the late fee from Student Accounts.  

Students are encouraged to present authorizations for billing a third party, e.g., U.S. Government, foreign governments, Vocational Rehabilitation, National Guard, etc., to Student Accounts on or before the first day of class.  Authorizations not received by Student Accounts before the payment Due Date will be considered delinquent. 

If your employer will reimburse you for tuition and fee costs (after grades have been issued) you MUST meet the regular payment deadlines set by the University or face action in accordance with a delinquent account.  This policy also applies to those who have tuition and/or fees paid by a UNMC department.  

Students who do not meet the deadlines specified above and in the Delinquent Tuition and Fee Policy (See Student Policy Delinquent Tuition and Fees) are subject to Administrative Withdrawal from UNMC (See Student Policy Administrative Withdrawal Policy).
