Tips: When Applying  

Complete all the information requested on the application. See that all questions are answered to avoid unnecessary correspondence and delay in considering your request for admission.

Your legal name should always be used. If your high school or college records may appear under another name, give this name also.

Submit your application and supporting documents in time for orientation. We require you apply at least ten days prior to the beginning of the orientation session you plan to attend. 


Tips: After Admission

You’re required to send your official final, high school transcript and any college transcripts (if you’ve taken college credit) to the Office of Admissions prior to enrollment. For a transcript to be considered official, it must be sent directly from the institution. Transcripts can be sent by email or mail, in a sealed envelope, to our mailing address.

If your official ACT or SAT test scores are not included on your official transcript, you’ll need the testing agency to send the scores to UNI. UNI’s ACT code is 1322 and SAT Code is 6307. Note that the ACT/SAT are not required for admission to UNI.
