Incoming Students

Welcome New Graduate Students!

First and foremost, congratulations on your successful admittance to the UNMC Graduate Studies program! At this point, you should have already received an email of acceptance. These are the steps that you must complete before proceeding with enrollment (registering for your coursework). A registration hold is active on all student accounts until each of these requirements have been satisfied:

If you have submitted a background check at UNMC within the last year you do not need to complete another background check. You can email One Source to obtain a copy of your background report and forward the report to the Office of Graduate Studies for review.
  • Additional Instructions for International Students
    • You must wait until you arrive in Omaha to initiate the background check process.
    • The One Source background check form requires the entry of a social security number. If you do not have a social security number, please enter nine - 9's. EXAMPLE: 999999999
