Regents Scholarship badge
These terms and requirements are effective for Transfer Regents Scholars for the 2022-2023 academic year.

The Transfer Regents Scholar Tuition Commitment covers the cost of UNL undergraduate tuition for up to four semesters or the completion of a bachelor’s degree, whichever comes first.  Benefits do not apply during periods of summer enrollment. See #9 below for information regarding which education abroad courses are eligible for this scholarship benefit.

2 Renewal of this commitment for the third and fourth semesters is dependent upon the recipent maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.500 or higher. Renewal determinations are made at the end of your second semester. The University computes grade point averages to three decimal places and does not round.  

The recipient must enroll full-time (at least 12 UNL credit hours) during each semester of the academic year (fall and spring semesters).  These hours must be officially registered by the sixth day of classes each semester. 

4 The recipient must successful complete at least 9 UNL graded hours each academic year. Successful completion is defined as the sum of all UNL credit hours completed with a grade of A through D- or Pass (P). Grades of I, N, W, F, and NR are not considered successfully completed. Repeated courses will only count once and must be registered for consecutive semesters (i.e., full time by sixth day of classes each semester).

The commitment cannot be used for non-credit courses or non-term specific correspondence courses.  Recipients cannot combine this award with any other tuition waiver from federal, state, or University sources (e.g., Employee Dependent Waiver).  The scholarship commitment cannot be used for courses taken at UNO, UNK or UNMC.

6 The commitment will be discontinued if the recipient withdraws from school or fails to register for consecutive semesters, unless an exception is granted because of extenuating circumstances.
7 Recipients must pay for the mandatory student service fees, laboratory fees related to particular courses, and other miscellaneous fees (for example drop/add charges, registration fees, and credit-by-examination fees).
8 An amount of money equal to the semester tuition charges will be credited to the recipient's student account and will appear on his or her billing statement.  Any student whose total scholarship and/or financial aid awards exceed his or her total institutional charges for a given semester will receive a refund for the difference from the Office of Student Account.
9 For global experience programs, this commitment may be applied toward UNL course credit (where tuition is charged). This tuition commitment cannot be applied toward course credit that will be transferred from another institution. Students may apply for a variety of scholarships specific to global experience programs:
