Requirements for New Admits

Background Check

All UNMC students are required to comply with the background check policy. The current background check vendor, OneSource, requires a fee payable online through their system with a credit card.  The background check instructions will guide you through the background check process. Be sure to complete both steps in the two step process.


All UNMC students are required to comply with the immunization policy  and must submit a completed immunization form (with verified records of immunizations) prior to registration. Contact Student Health with any questions or problems at 402-559-5158.

UNMC Email

If you did not previously possess a UNMC e-mail address, then you will receive a NetID Account Notification, either attached to your admission confirmation e-mail or sent shortly thereafter. The Office of Graduate Studies will send all communications to your UNMC email. It is imperative that you monitor your UNMC email for updates from the Office of Graduate Studies. At your earliest convenience, go into the MyRecords Profile area and change your preferred email address to this campus email address.
