Removing Admission Deficiencies

Students who have University of Nebraska-Lincoln Admission Deficiencies are strongly encouraged to complete the necessary courses that will remove their deficiencies PRIOR to enrolling at NEBRASKA.

Students can clear their admission deficiencies by completing appropriate courses through:

  • UNL's Office of Online and Distance Education
    UNL's Office of Online and Distance Education offers many courses at the college and high school levels. For more information, call the office at (402) 472-2175 or visit their website at: Online and Distance Education. Students who have a high school diploma must take college level courses to remove an admissions deficiency.
  • Community Colleges
    Students may also choose to fulfill their requirement by completing courses at a community college. Select a community college from the links on the right to determine appropriate deficiency removal.

If you are an out-of-state student and wish to fill the requirement by completing courses at your local community college, you are welcome to contact the Office of Admissions to determine which courses to take.

Note: One college semester equivalent course must be successfully completed to remove any fraction of one unit of deficiency (e.g. students who have 1/2 unit deficiency in 4th year math must complete one college semester of an appropriate course to remove the deficiency).
