Program Requirements

Welcome to UNMC! Once you receive an official admission decision from the Dean of Graduate Studies, it’s important that you follow program, sub-plan and the Graduate College guidelines for graduate students. Before registering for courses you will be required to set up your UNMC email account, complete a background check and submit immunization records. Once this process is complete, you have met all other admission requirements and you have visited with your mentor about appropriate courses, you may register via MyRecords

There are set deadlines for registration each semester, late registration is not permitted. There are also specific course load requirements for full-time students, these and other requirement notices are typically sent to your UNMC email account but can also be found on the Graduate Studies Courses & Registration page.

It’s important that newly admitted students meet with their mentor to discuss first semester course registration, required attendance at workshops and seminars, and other required duties if they have been awarded a teaching or research assistantship.  Mentors also serve as the Chair of the student's Advisory/Supervisory Committee.  This is a good time to start developing your (Draft) Program of Studies as it is required by the Office of Graduate Studies and outlined in the Graduate Degree Timelines.

Please note: Communications will only be sent to your UNMC email account so be sure to check it regularly.
