Have you completed the online Application for Admission to Peru State?


Apply Now!


Please note: When you select 'apply now' above, the first screen will ask you to create a username and password as you would to create any other Internet account. You will receive an email from our Admissions Office stating that your application has been received.


It takes 24 or so hours for your application to be processed into our student information system then you will receive another email from our Admissions Office stating that you are admitted to Peru State on a conditional basis. This email gives you information that you must go to the URL listed to 'claim' your student identification number which we call an NUID. 'Claiming' your NUID consists of you creating and confirming a password for your NUID and answering four security questions in case you ever forget your password. Please keep your NUID, password, and security questions available because you will use your NUID and password to log into our student information system and other sites that you will have access to.


PLEASE NOTE: If you have NOT received the emails described above, the emails may be stored in your Spam or Junk folders. Please check those folders as soon as possible. If you still do not have the emails, please contact the Admissions Office and ask for the emails to be sent again!


You are admitted on a conditional basis and can enroll for the semester you applied to begin taking your courses. The conditional basis is on the condition that you submit the required materials listed below. Failure to submit these documents can prevent you from registering for future semesters' courses. We encourage students to submit the following documents as soon as possible.

When you have completed the online application, the following are the criteria and materials that must be submitted in order to be admitted to the graduate program. Materials should be directed to the Graduate Programs Office, Peru State College, P.O. Box 10, Peru, NE 68421.

    • Official transcript verifying possession of an earned baccalaureate degree from a regionally-accredited college or university. Full admission requires an overall minimum grade point average of 3.00 in a 4.00 system. If an applicant wants to have a transcript evaluated for transfer graduate credit, that transcript must also be submitted, and the student must submit a Transfer Credit Request form to the Graduate Programs Office to request transfer credit consideration.
    • Two recommendation forms at least one from a direct supervisor or principal. Recommendations from a relative is not appropriate.

  1. Course Registration:
    It is the responsibility of the student to plan his/her own program of study.  The rotation schedule is available and updated when necessary.

    Online students are required to use the "myPSC" feature to register for courses once they are admitted to Peru State College.

  2. Blackboard Orientation:
    Students are assigned a Blackboard account and are registered for the course(s) approximately one week prior to the course start date.

    Your username will be your first and last name (all one word, all lowercase).  Your password will be your student identification number (no spaces or dashes).

    You will need to log in to your Blackboard account during the week prior to class beginning in order to complete the Blackboard Orientation which is mandatory.

  3. Purchase Your Textbooks:
    The textbook list is on the Graduate Programs web site home page and is updated regularly.

    Please contact the Bobcat Bookstore at 402-872-2248 or to determine what textbook(s) is(are) being used at least three weeks ahead of time to insure that you have the correct textbook(s) before the course begins.

    If you purchase the textbook(s) from a vendor other than the Bobcat Bookstore, Peru State College will not be held responsible for having a textbook inconsistent with the one the course is scheduled to use.
