UNMC participates in the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). This service assists students wishing to apply for possible admission to the first year of medical school and does not render any admission decisions or advise applicants where to submit applications or provide other admissions advice. Each participating school is completely autonomous in reaching its own decisions. Direct application to an AMCAS school is not possible.
Bylaws of the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska state that admission to the University and the priveleges of the university student shall not be denied to any person because of age, handicap, sex, race, color, national origin or religious or political beliefs.
Acceptance of registration by the University of Nebraska and admission to any educational program of the university does not constitute a contract or warrantee that the university will continue indefinitely to offer the program in which a student is enrolled. The university expressly reserves the right to change, phase out, or discontinue any program.
In summary, UNMC policies are in accord with:
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972
Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
Sections 799A and 854 of the Public Health Services Act
UNMC has an Affirmative Action Office who works closely with the Division of Student Success to ensure these policies and supported on campus.
