Registration Requirements

Prior to the start of classes each session, students must register for courses according to instructions published on the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) website. To be eligible to register, a new or re-admitted student (one who has not enrolled during the previous two years) must have completed all admissions information. Prior to registering, students should seek assistance from an academic adviser within his/her college. Some colleges and departments require advising prior to registering. Every student is encouraged to review the requirements for their intended degree objective with an assigned academic adviser. This review should be scheduled in preparation for and prior to each registration.


Students who have outstanding debts or fees owed to the University will not be permitted to register until these obligations have been met. Academically suspended students may not register for additional course work until an application for reinstatement has been filed with their collegiate dean and approved. Due to limited facilities and staff, the University cannot guarantee that all students will be able to enroll for every course they wish in each semester.


A student’s academic classification is determined by the number of semester hours of academic credit earned.

Academic Classification Range in Semester Hours
Freshman 0 through 26
Sophomore 27 through 57
Junior 58 through 90
Senior 91 or above

All courses listed in this catalog cannot be offered each semester. Some departments indicate in which semester the course is normally offered.

Furthermore, students cannot be guaranteed placement in a course offered during a particular semester.
