University of Nebraska-Engineering

The University of Nebraska’s College of Engineering has provided the following answers to common questions/topics.
  • To have guaranteed admission into the UNL College of Engineering on either the Lincoln or Omaha campus, a student must have 1 unit of chemistry, 1 unit of physics, and 4 years of math through pre-calculus/trigonometry as well as an ACT of 24 (or an SAT of 1110). If you have a student interested in engineering, please make sure they are taking the proper courses in order to ensure their admission into the college.
  • A listing of AP/IB courses that Nebraska Engineering accepts is available online at These courses can be used for a student’s engineering curriculum. If you have a student who is taking an AP/IB course NOT on the list, or a dual enrollment course, please contact the engineering recruitment office before the student enrolls.
  • Nebraska Engineering does offer additional scholarships to incoming engineering freshmen, based on academic merit and financial need. These scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis through a student’s admission application to either UNO or UNL and do not require any additional applications or documentation. This is NOT true for students interested in the Raikes School or the Scott Scholarship program. Both of these entities have scholarships available to engineering students but require additional application materials and have earlier deadlines. For information on the Raikes program, students can visit and for the Scott Scholarship program,
