Now that you're admitted... What's next?
After being accepted into the University of New Orleans, you'll need to take care of just a few more details to complete the admissions process.
1. Share the good news!
By taking a photo and posting on social media using #UNOproud. Follow us at @UofNO and @UNOadmissions to see if you’re spotlighted!
2. Access Your UNO Email
Spring 2024 | Summer 2024
It is important that you use your UNO email address for all University related communications. You will receive an email from our Information Technology (IT) department with instructions on how to set up your new @UNO.edu email account.
If you have not received this information after admission, please contact the Help Desk (504)280.4357. They can assist in getting this for you.
Due to software upgrades, in April of 2024, you will receive an email with instructions from UNO Access Services about setting up your UNO student account and UNO email address. Don’t worry, we will send you reminders to be on the lookout.
3. Submit FAFSA and Review Financial Aid
If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, be sure to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov. Have questions about the FAFSA, TOPS, scholarships, etc.? Visit finaid.uno.edu or call the Privateer Enrollment Center at 504.280.6603. All financial aid notices will be sent to your UNO student email account, so be sure to check it regularly!
4. Send your Transcripts
There are different ways to send your transcripts to UNO. No matter how you send them, please follow the instructions listed at uno.edu/admissions/transcripts to ensure that the Office of Admissions receives your transcripts.
