Application Instructions and Process:
Once you have confirmed your online account by following instructions in the email you received, you can begin the application process. There are six required steps and they will become visible in your online account. Only after completing and submitting all of the six steps below by March 1, 2018 at 5:00PM (CST) will the Goodrich Scholarship Program applicant file be complete and eligible for consideration. Eligible applicants with complete files will then be invited to an interview and asked to write a personal essay. Applicants may either contact the Goodrich office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 402.554.2875 with any questions.
Step 1. Goodrich Scholarship Information Form. PLEASE COMPLETE THIS STEP FIRST. The applicant must complete and submit the Goodrich Scholarship Information Form by the March 1 application deadline.
Step 2. University of Nebraska at Omaha Application. Goodrich Scholarship Program applicants must complete an Undergraduate Application for Admission to UNO by March 1. Applicants must follow the online instructions at http://www.unomaha.edu/admissions/apply/undergraduate/index.php or call UNO’s admissions office at 402.554.2393 for UNO admission assistance. Upon completion, this task will be updated by Goodrich.
Note that Goodrich applicants must meet UNO admission criteria and be admitted to UNO prior to acceptance to the Goodrich Scholarship Program.
Step 3. Official Reference Forms. Goodrich Scholarship Program applicants must submit TWO official reference forms (Sent through our application system via email) completed by teachers, counselors, employers or other professionals who are not family members or friends. Each applicant is responsible for verifying that the Goodrich Scholarship Program receives the two references by the MARCH 1, 2018 at 5:00PM (CST) deadline.
Step 4. Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Goodrich Scholarship Program applicants must establish financial need through the FAFSA. To complete the FAFSA go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov and follow the online instructions, or call UNO’s Financial Support and Scholarships Office for further financial aid assistance at 402.554.2327. Final verification of an applicant’s financial status is determined by the UNO Financial Support and Scholarships Office. Upon completing the FAFSA, applicants MUST provide Goodrich with proof of completion (through e-mail, fax/scan, or USPS mail) before the March 1 deadline. To accommodate the March 1 application deadline and to enable Goodrich to preliminarily assess the applicant’s financial need, the applicant can complete the 2017-2018 EducationQuest College Funding Estimator online at http://www.educationquest.org/college-funding-estimator. All pages of this estimate must be printed out and submitted to the Goodrich Scholarship Program before the March 1 deadline. Note that the applicant must still complete and process all documents for the FAFSA before Goodrich can award any scholarship.
Step 5. English Placement and Proficiency Exam (EPPE). The UNO Testing Center manages this free online test which must be taken and processed before the March 1, 2018 deadline. To take the EPPE online, applicants MUST have their UNO NetID Credentials (username and password). Note that this UNO NetID is not the 8-digit number but is created after applying to UNO using parts of your first and last name. THIS PROCESS can take SEVERAL days, so it is imperative to PLAN AHEAD. The FINAL EPPE TESTING DATE for Goodrich applicants is February 23, 2018. For additional information, visit the UNO Testing Center website at http://www.unomaha.edu/enrollment-management/testing-center/placement-exams/english-placement-proficiency-exam.php or call UNO’s Testing Center at 402.554.4800.
Step 6. Transcripts (High School and College) AND ACT/SAT scores. The applicant must submit high school (or GED) transcripts, ACT/SAT scores, and any college transcripts to the Goodrich Scholarship Program by the MARCH 1 application deadline. Goodrich will accept ACT/SAT scores included on the applicant’s high school transcript.
Note: Transcripts required as part of UNO’s Undergraduate Application for Admission process cannot be faxed and must be sent directly from the high school to Undergraduate Admissions. Goodrich cannot request transcripts from UNO’s Admissions Office.
It is your responsibility as an applicant to monitor the status of your entire application file and follow up with your references, individuals in your schools, and others to assure that all documents are received by the Goodrich Scholarship Program before the March 1, 2018, 5:00PM deadline. You can track the status of each task by logging into your account. The status of each task will read either "Incomplete," "Pending" or "Complete."
Once all steps are complete, you can officially send your entire application file by clicking the SUBMIT button at the bottom of the page. NOTE: This button will not be active until all documents have been received and the Goodrich Scholarship Program staff have indicated that the tasks are complete. You will not be eligible for the Goodrich Scholarship until all required steps are complete and you officially send your completed application file by clicking the SUBMIT button by March 1, 2018 at 5:00PM (CST). Eligible applicants with complete files will then be invited to an in-person interview and asked to write a personal essay.
NOTE: Applicants who receive tuition scholarships including but not limited to Regents, Chancellor's, Dean's and Buffett Foundation cannot combine or stack any of those awards with a Goodrich scholarship. For more information about stacking scholarships, please contact UNO's Office of Financial Support and Scholarships.
