[00:00:07.315]Before, before we get into all that (mumbles) stuff.
[00:00:09.585]Before we get into all that wonderful stuff
[00:00:10.419]How is everyone feeling after lunch?
[00:00:12.041]Good? Sleepy? You can be honest.
[00:00:16.380]You're feeling tired? (Laughing) Okay. Well, good.
[00:00:19.600]So hopefully I don't put you to sleep or anything like that.
[00:00:23.318]But of course, when you actually are interested
[00:00:25.720]in applying to the university of Nebraska
[00:00:27.120]Were able to provide so much for you with
[00:00:29.365]over a 150 student majors. There is always something
[00:00:31.800]that we can actually get you connected to.
[00:00:33.431]That's huge for us
[00:00:35.370]because we wanna make sure we provide you
[00:00:37.898]with as many opportunities to be successful here.
[00:00:40.101]That would also mean connecting with professors
[00:00:42.358]and also a lot of our faculty and staff.
[00:00:43.191]Also to make sure you're truly
[00:00:44.687]having a well rounded experience.
[00:00:45.730]But we know to start that process, you have to go
[00:00:47.920]through the application. So when your transferring,
[00:00:51.492]if you wanna start with transferring credits,
[00:00:53.010]just kind of look at what you want to transfer
[00:00:56.090]into based off of what school you went to.
[00:00:56.923]you literally can go to our admissions page.
[00:00:58.810]We have that information on there. It's located
[00:01:01.494]under specialized information, and then
[00:01:03.263]it's the very first, very first link
[00:01:06.961]that you can click on. It takes you through to this page.
[00:01:10.791]The first thing is if you want to start
[00:01:12.580]with transferring credits. It literally
[00:01:13.827]takes you to another page where it walks you
[00:01:16.530]through the process. So what transfer, what credits
[00:01:19.830]transfer? How do you transfer credits?
[00:01:21.580]And then, how do you finish in 4 years?
[00:01:25.453]All those are, once you click on it,
[00:01:27.780]we have a process that we can literally help you through.
[00:01:31.310]So we use Transferology and also your
[00:01:34.023]credit evaluation policy and we can actually use this list.
[00:01:38.230]You can click on it, it takes you through there. (Cough)
[00:01:41.207]We use Transferology, which is a helpful tool, it literally
[00:01:44.016]allows you to take and put in all the classes
[00:01:46.480]that you're taking at your current university or college.
[00:01:50.662]And then see which one that you're taking,
[00:01:52.290]or want to be taking, that they're offering here
[00:01:55.020]which will transfer over.
[00:01:56.983]So that's a very helpful tool. It kind of gives you
[00:01:58.610]a snapshot of which courses that you're taking now
[00:02:01.296]Which will transfer over and what they transfer as
[00:02:05.084]I'll give you a bunch of steps here.
[00:02:07.305](Mumbles) You get started, create your account,
[00:02:11.141]then you can probably find out what specific courses
[00:02:12.411]are offered and what they transfer over as.
[00:02:14.525]It shouldn't take too terribly long to do
[00:02:16.300]depends on how many courses you've taken
[00:02:17.827]but that is the process that we, I highly encourage
[00:02:20.580]so you understand how many credits your coming in as.
[00:02:23.448]So if your coming in as, technically your transferring
[00:02:25.703]with 24 credit hours or your transferring with 12
[00:02:29.221]I want you to know what that looks like for you
[00:02:31.980]and how long that's likely to put your degree plan
[00:02:34.236]to make sure we try to get you out of here
[00:02:36.568]in four years. So, that's the big one.
[00:02:38.921]And then credit evaluation one.
[00:02:40.758]Two you can click on it, Let me click on it
[00:02:42.523]so you can see what it looks like. Find your institution,
[00:02:46.800]and you can kind of go through that process and
[00:02:49.627]enter that information there. So that way,
[00:02:51.342]you can see what kind of comes in as for the university.
[00:02:54.469]So, depending on what class you're taking,
[00:02:57.899]you can see pretty much the equivalent of that course
[00:03:00.636]that you're taking. So, that way it helps you be
[00:03:02.421]Kind of concerned with (cough)
[00:03:04.007]if you wanna take a class at your current university
[00:03:06.260]or college and Work out a transfer program. So that way
[00:03:10.026]you planning a transfer within one year or once after,
[00:03:13.370]it decides on what course you need to transfer, or
[00:03:15.578]something that would be helpful for you
[00:03:17.367]to take at our [Mumbles]
[00:03:19.696]so that's huge. Any questions so far?
[00:03:33.334]It's on our list of courses that pretty much
[00:03:34.783]break down what we offer, our course equivalency.
[00:03:37.000]At the university.
[00:03:38.014][Male Audience Member] Have you helped others from
[00:03:39.844]NICT come here?
[00:03:41.389]Speaker yup un hun.We have a I'm pretty much
[00:03:43.813]a rep out there.I do a little bit of helping.
[00:03:46.697]So I'm out there and I'll be going tomorrow
[00:03:48.720]to help them some more students.
[00:03:50.742]I also work for amal issue and all those individuals
[00:03:54.290]in the surrounding community to make sure we
[00:03:55.930]get them to college and help them know
[00:03:58.566]what that process is. I also oversee our
[00:04:01.105]Nebraska College prepatory academy over at
[00:04:03.016]Woodland middle school.So we'll have
[00:04:05.162]technically students coming here
[00:04:07.241]who want to enroll here this upcoming year.
[00:04:08.531]There actually seniors so I'm pretty familiar
[00:04:09.364]with the process and what transfer over.
[00:04:12.361]And also with the systems that we work with
[00:04:15.723]so I understand what that looks like for you.
[00:04:19.440]The course you take out at NITC, a lot
[00:04:22.156]of those courses transfer. And also at your
[00:04:25.277]institution a lot of those courses transfer
[00:04:27.101]over to. It's just what they'll transfer over as.
[00:04:29.467]We want to make sure we can kind of help
[00:04:30.390]you understand.Cool, so everybody good with that?
[00:04:35.329]So the next step, applying. Since you are
[00:04:38.967]going to be applying and have to apply
[00:04:41.900]to get admitted into the university of course.
[00:04:44.610]Once you apply, what were looking for
[00:04:46.503]as a transfer student is you have to have
[00:04:48.360]above a 2.0 in the last semester that you've
[00:04:51.940]taken classes and above a 2.0GPA accumulative GPA
[00:04:57.521]to be admitted.So we're looking at those
[00:05:00.370]So of course the higher your GPA, especially if you've
[00:05:03.659]done some classes in that last semester, make sure
[00:05:05.640]you've applied to the university and you finish
[00:05:08.497]strong.Because those, we look at that information.
[00:05:11.720]So pretty much make sure you get entrance to the university.
[00:05:14.577]That's huge for us because based off of
[00:05:20.399]the classes that you take, and the GPA, and everything
[00:05:23.898]you bring in we have scholarships. Which is the
[00:05:25.990]next tab. Which pretty much afford you a lot of
[00:05:28.565]options. So once you apply for transfer student admission
[00:05:30.959]the deadline of the application, for you to view,
[00:05:35.213]all the information is available for you
[00:05:36.699]We actually have a lot of scholarships to give out.
[00:05:37.532]So we have our Native American Heritage scholarship
[00:05:40.075]Which statistically can range from $1000
[00:05:40.908]all the way through the cost of tuition
[00:05:44.050]We have two of those to give out every
[00:05:45.702]year for two students transferring to
[00:05:47.115]the university so, the last two years we haven't
[00:05:51.121]given out not one.
[00:05:53.043][Male Audience Member] Not every year?
[00:05:54.311]Speaker two years
[00:05:56.036][Male Audience Member] So whose going to apply here?
[00:06:00.384]Speaker so to be honest we have problems having
[00:06:02.940]students actually apply for the Native American
[00:06:06.788]Heritage Scholarships.Thats undergraduate and graduate
[00:06:09.824]I mean transfer, transferring in students
[00:06:12.023]So That's an application out there
[00:06:12.856]that we want to make sure we can give
[00:06:15.607]you some money so apply. It's only like an
[00:06:17.520]additional essay that you guys have to fill out
[00:06:20.347]It's pretty quick,simple and the question
[00:06:21.880]pretty much ask you what is your ties to the
[00:06:24.690]Native American culture and what have you
[00:06:26.970]been doing in the community and pretty sure
[00:06:29.770]all of you can speak to that.
[00:06:33.078]So, that's there for you. So, as I mentioned
[00:06:38.912]performance requirement list.
[00:06:40.717]I said 2.0 and then we still look at
[00:06:44.240]your core requirements though.We look at those core
[00:06:46.300]classes to make sure we can evaluate you
[00:06:48.927]and make sure your taking the right classes.
[00:06:52.137]So, the big one that we, I honestly
[00:06:54.385]see a lot of students not meet is that math
[00:06:56.329]and also we have some of the natural sciences
[00:06:59.103]So just make sure you pay attention
[00:07:01.747]to what classes you take in your high school
[00:07:03.676]or while your at your current institution.
[00:07:06.742]To make sure your kind of meeting some
[00:07:08.921]of those core requirements.Kind of knock it
[00:07:10.659]off your list of things that you need to do.
[00:07:15.781]Okay. Any questions so far?
[00:07:23.070]I will say there are different requirements
[00:07:25.648]for different departments and all that information
[00:07:27.834]I'll show to you in just a minute here.
[00:07:29.689]but I'll go back to show you some of the
[00:07:35.930]If you ever want to look at
[00:07:36.887]the scholarship information just go to the website
[00:07:41.519]literally click on transfer and it gives you
[00:07:44.761]a whole list of scholarships that are available.
[00:07:50.048]These are the ones
[00:07:51.573][Female Audience Member] Is that the one you were just
[00:07:55.564]talking about? - Speaker Yup this one here
[00:07:57.550]transfer region and then the whoa, there it is
[00:08:04.185]yeah. So that's the one.
[00:08:08.220]are the ones I want to make sure you guys
[00:08:09.810]know about. We also have other ones to
[00:08:12.703]for out of state students, that won't play a role
[00:08:15.282]in that but these are all the out of state students
[00:08:18.585]So a lot of these down here where we didn't have
[00:08:20.440]the date was changed. 2000 transfer student
[00:08:24.824]scholarship, so it's a lot of them.
[00:08:27.238]So, I would encourage you guys to have a look at them
[00:08:28.071]see what's out there
[00:08:29.726]Some of our bigger ones as you can see
[00:08:32.041]are based off your GPA and stuff like that
[00:08:33.697]are at the top. So, that's typically how we try to
[00:08:36.900]sort it is the top is the top based off of your grade
[00:08:49.602]So at this point a lot of
[00:08:50.960]the information as far as transferring
[00:08:53.695]is pretty straight forward. We will once you
[00:08:55.831]graduate from your institution or once you transfer
[00:08:57.810]we will require those transcripts
[00:08:59.530]so make sure you send those transcripts
[00:09:01.937]to us. That's one of the parts
[00:09:03.937]that we meet a lot of students
[00:09:05.412]that not necessarily get held up in the
[00:09:06.729]process but we have to verify the classes
[00:09:08.722]that they've taken or the course that you take.
[00:09:09.555]Pretty much our application is
[00:09:11.703][Female Audience Member] What's your application fee?
[00:09:14.716][Female Audience Member] $45?
[00:09:15.549]Speaker yes $45 but if you are
[00:09:17.570]let me go back to that so you can see it
[00:09:30.522]$45 you can pay debit, credit card or anything
[00:09:34.631]like that. So that is there.
[00:09:39.914]I'm not 100% sure if we utilize that information
[00:09:44.582]But that $45 fee or what plays into that but
[00:09:48.370]right now it's just $45. Yeah any other questions?
[00:10:03.393]Okay at this point
[00:10:05.622]I want to go back to the transfer page
[00:10:08.741]because there is a lot of relevant information
[00:10:11.097]on this page at the bottom. So we also have
[00:10:12.660]our transfer honors program so depending on
[00:10:15.360]if you want to pursue that. It gives you a work opportunity
[00:10:18.700]to work with our honors program.
[00:10:20.568]They do a lot of hands on stuff and offer a lot
[00:10:23.560]of things you see here. Not just
[00:10:25.934]stuff with your intelligence but
[00:10:27.240]take honors classes, work with faculty
[00:10:30.886]and faculty mentors on a one on one
[00:10:32.741]basis. And also you can have the advantage
[00:10:36.266]of taking a study abroad trip if you
[00:10:38.312]would like to do that as well.
[00:10:39.990]And then they offer a lot of student
[00:10:42.098]internships depending on what your majoring in and
[00:10:44.599]if you see a lot of value in this.But the big thing
[00:10:47.250]for them is the. So of course if your
[00:10:49.810]coming in with a lot of credits already
[00:10:51.820]So we want to make sure that your taking
[00:10:53.796]the proper classes before you even get to this
[00:10:54.920]university to make sure we get you out
[00:10:56.400]of here in as close to four years, if
[00:10:58.430]not sooner with that degree. So, depending on
[00:11:01.530]what program you go into, it may be a little bit
[00:11:04.440]longer.I know engineering has some
[00:11:07.106]strict requirements in regards to what they
[00:11:09.961]offer for students. So make sure you pay attention
[00:11:12.728]to some of those requirements. But
[00:11:13.700]if you look and don't have some of
[00:11:15.775]the information you would like the actual
[00:11:18.720]advisor contact is listed and you can scroll
[00:11:22.641]base off of what your trying to major in. Okay?
[00:11:31.316]So on this page you can actually see
[00:11:34.319]some of those efficiencies and why those credits
[00:11:39.253]come in as either a half efficiency in math
[00:11:41.660]as I talked to you about but you can also remove
[00:11:44.597]a lot of those by taking some of the classes you need
[00:11:48.698]to fulfill those early on. But you also
[00:11:51.382]can reach out to the university to see
[00:11:52.799]what core efficiencies are required of you
[00:11:55.123]using unofficial transcripts of course and see
[00:11:57.240]what core classes that you haven't taken already.
[00:12:00.688]But we can look at you, use that transcript and
[00:12:03.425]evaluate who and what to take.
[00:12:05.152]That way if you want to transfer tot he university
[00:12:07.759]we can make that process a lot easier for you
[00:12:09.877]So you know what you need to take and your taking
[00:12:10.710]those classes. To transfer to the university
[00:12:13.339]right now with 12 credit hours and that's all
[00:12:16.129]your looking at.So even considering to be a
[00:12:18.448]transfer student so if you take those 12
[00:12:21.143]credit hours any credits that you take above that
[00:12:23.024]it's just helping depending on what your degree
[00:12:25.545]plan is. But I always encourage you to reach
[00:12:27.118]out an advisor so that they can actually
[00:12:28.205]talk to you about the process and what that's
[00:12:29.635]going to look like for you.
[00:12:30.468]So I wanted to leave roughly
[00:12:33.480]about 10 minutes for questions.
[00:12:37.112]What questions do you have for me?
