Ready to Apply?
The PGA requires prospective PGA Golf Management students to be formally accepted into the PGM program. Therefore, if a student who has been admitted to UNL wishes to be considered for the cohort that will begin the upcoming fall semester, that student will need to submit proof of playing ability by August 1 (preferably sooner). One option is to provide a copy of current documentation of certified golf handicap of 12 or better (e.g. USGA handicap card) or simply email GHIN # to email@example.com. Another option is to submit a verification of playing ability form estimating equivalent of a 12 or better handicap signed by a PGA professional or high school golf coach (this can be mailed, faxed, dropped off at the PGM office or scanned and sent as email attachment). After receiving one of the above items, the PGA Golf Management office will send the student a letter of acceptance into the PGA Golf Management program at UNL.Email GHINVerification of Playing Ability FormApply to UNL
