COVID-19 FAQs for Enrollment Services
Can I be admitted as a freshman for Summer 2020 or Fall 2020 without test scores?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of New Orleans will admit in-state first time freshman, who apply on or after April 1st, 2020, based solely on the Louisiana Core 4 GPA. For the Summer and Fall 2020 terms, applicants with a 2.5+ core GPA who do not meet test score requirements, or do not submit test scores will be admitted based on core GPA alone. For any questions please contact the Privateer Enrollment Center at email@example.com. Students who are admitted in this manner will need to sit for the Accuplacer exam prior to enrollment, and can email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Are campus tours still available?
While in-person tours are temporarily paused, we do have a virtual tour page where you can experience our lakefront campus here: https://www.uno.edu/virtual-tour
How do I receive my UNO login/where can I find my UNO ID number?
