What you Need to Know… and Need to Do…

The following are important steps to help you through the enrollment process. We look forward to your joining us on campus and becoming a UNO Maverick!

Schedule Placement Exams

Shortly following admission, Freshmen and Transfer students receive information from the Testing Center about English, math, chemistry, French and Spanish placement tests. Math placement is determined by your ACT math subscore or results on the Math Placement Exam (MPE). Students with transfer credit may have already satisfied their testing requirements and should check with an advisor in their UNO college concerning the need to take an exam. Additional information on testing and registration for placement exams is available at (402) 554-4800 or online:

Submit your Health Form and Immunization Records

New incoming students must provide official documentation of immunizations and complete a Pre-Enrollment Health Requirement form BEFORE they will be able to register for an Orientation session or meet with an academic advisor to register for classes. Additional information is available online:

NU ID and Password

Your NU ID and password established during the application process enable you to access various online services across campus and to log in to mavlink:

Using your NU ID and Password, log in to mavlink and review your “To Do List” for any outstanding items that may be required prior to enrollment. You will also use mavlink to register for orientation and classes; check financial aid awarded; view grades and current class schedules; pay tuition and much more!

Register for Your Orientation Session

New Freshmen and Transfer students are required to attend New Student Orientation. New Freshmen students will register for classes during Orientation. Orientation registration begins in March for sessions held May through August. Space is limited and sessions fill up quickly, so register soon. Attend Orientation as early as possible to get the best selection of classes and times. New Freshmen and Transfer students who enroll for the Summer Session and intend to enroll in the Fall semester, are required to attend Fall Orientation. Information about registering for New Student Orientation is available online:

Meet with an Academic Advisor

All admitted students in a degree program must visit with an academic advisor to select and register for classes.

Freshmen Students: Advising is included in your Orientation session. Your advisor will assist you in building a class schedule and registering for your classes via mavlink. Bring your NU ID and password to your Orientation and advising appointments.

Transfer Students: After you have scheduled your Orientation, you should make an appointment with an academic advisor by calling your UNO college:

Schedule your advising appointment for a time/date as soon after your Orientation session as possible. If you attend a morning Orientation session, we recommend you schedule your advising appointment for that afternoon. If you are transferring credits, please bring unofficial copies of transcripts from your previous institutions.

Registering for Classes

Newly admitted Freshmen and Transfer students register for classes via mavlink when they meet with their academic advisor.

Previously enrolled UNO students, Non-Degree/Visiting, and Inter-Campus students register via mavlink during OPEN REGISTRATION.

Additional registration information is available online:

Apply for On-Campus Housing

Housing applications are currently being accepted for Maverick Village, University Village, Scott Village, Scott Court and Scott Hall. Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. For additional information and to apply, go online:

Request Your Final Transcripts

If you are currently enrolled at a high school or college, or just graduated from high school, please request a final transcript be sent to the following address after you have finished your final courses.

UNO Undergraduate Admissions
6001 Dodge St, EAB 111
Omaha, NE 68182-0286

Failure to provide a final transcript will impact your academic advising and delay registration for future courses at UNO.

Dual Enrollment

If you took dual enrollment courses during high school, you must have the official college transcript sent to the address above in order to obtain college credit. Failure to do so will impact your academic advising and delay registration for future courses at UNO.

Consider the Honors Program

If you have a minimum ACT composite score of 26 or SAT 1190 (Critical Reading & Math), consider applying for the UNO Honors Program which is a unique program of study for high achieving students. Honors classes and seminars are specially designed and exclusively for Honors Program students. Additional information is available at (402) 554-2696 and online:

Change in Admission Term

Your offer of admission is valid only for the term for which you applied. If you plan to enroll for a different term, you must submit a new UNO Application for Undergraduate Admission. If you applied for fall and would like to start this summer instead, please contact the Admissions Office at 402-554-2393 or email

Apply for Financial Aid

If you have not already filed the FAFSA form (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), please visit: to complete the application. The priority deadline is April 1 for consideration for all sources of funds. However, some types of federal aid remain available during the academic year for those who apply after April 1. General UNO financial aid information is available at:

Students who have already completed the FAFSA will typically be contacted by the UNO Financial Aid Office via email within 2-3 weeks of receipt of the FAFSA information. Check your email account frequently for ongoing important messages regarding your financial aid status.

Activate Your UNO Email Account

All students enrolled in classes at UNO have a gmav email account. New Freshmen and Transfer students will receive and activate their gmav accounts at Orientation. Important academic and business information—including your Student Accounts tuition billing statement—are emailed to students. To learn how to access and use your UNO gmav account, go online:

Disability Services

Students with a disability who are admitted and enrolled at UNO may request accommodations to ensure equal access to courses, programs and activities. Please contact the Disability Services coordinator at (402) 554-2872 or TTY (402) 554-3799.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
