Admissions Advice

Hi, so what is the average GPA, SAT, ACT, and AP scores for the biology program at the University of Nebraska?

I was wondering what was the minimum requirements to get into the biology program.

The University of Nebraska at Lincoln admits have a GPA of 3.59 and SAT range of 1130-1360 for the 25%-75% percentile and an ACT score range of 22 to 29. The admit rate is nearly 80% and the hardest majors are CS, Engineering, and Architecture. Biology is not one of those hard to get into majors. Many colleges do not disclose AP scores for their admits. I'm enclosing a link for you to review in case you have taken AP courses. For the most part you will get college credit if you scored 4s and 5s on your AP exams. In some cases, you will get credit for a 3.


Also earlier this year they stated that they have a new 3.0 GPA minimum requirement which will allow many more students to qualify.


Best of luck in your college admissions process.

I presume you are talking about UNL who’s in the big10 not UNO(Omaha) or UNK(Kearney). Biology is typically not a super competitive program compared to other schools. So it’s fairly average compared to the school as a whole and with the university wide admit rate being a smidge under 80%.

If you have further questions about programs I’d recommend you email UNL admissions as a lot of program specific data is not public.

Here’s a UNL admissions link

Hi, I'm from CT (so I don't know much about UNebraska) but generally you can find overall college requirements by looking here: https://www.prepscholar.com/sat/s/colleges/University-of-Nebraska---Lincoln-admission-requirements

I would say for any specific program go ahead and add ~50 points to SAT score to estimate the score. It won't really be a cutoff, but rather a goal of what you can aim for to have a solid chance of getting in.

Hope this helps
