If Selected To Interview

Students selected to interview will be notified via email by Scholar Program staff. We hope to have all students selected to interview to attend an in-person interview on either the Scott (Omaha) or City (Lincoln) campus. Scholar Program staff will work with students who demonstrate financial need and may need additional support to get to campus to interview. If alternative interview options need to be made, Scholar Program Staff will work out those details with interviewing students on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions about the interview process, please reach out to Scholar Programs at coe-scholarprograms@unl.edu.
