Complete your first Professional Skills requirement before you even get on campus!



Register for Business 1000, the first level of the Professional Readiness Program. This section is specially designed for new transfer students to UNI. This year, we’re offering an exclusive opportunity to students from our community college partners to complete this graduation requirement before you even transfer to our campus.

Business 1000 will provide a brief introduction to the college by providing resources for you to answer some of the common questions new transfer students have. This section is held at the start of each semester (fall and spring).
