Two part multi-day format (Zoom orientation only):
Before your virtual orientation date, your Academic Advisor will contact you to set up an advising appointment. During this appointment, your Advisor will help you create your Fall course schedule and give you instructions on how to register for your courses on your own. Please make sure you have set-up your UNO username and password if you haven't already.
Your Privateer orientation will be taking place on zoom from 11am-1pm CST. During this virtual session, you will have another chance to talk with your Advisor, as well as learn about the process of switching or dropping courses, and meet with our UNO Orientation Leaders & New Student Experience staff for a detailed presentation about UNO campus resources.
Will you require any accommodations for a disability (visible or invisible) to have a successful advising experience? Please email email@example.com to let us know.
Virtual Orientation is just the beginning of your New Student Experience! Check out your next steps with the buttons below. These programs are collaboratively designed to prepare you to be a successful Privateer!
