How to Enroll and Make Changes to Enrollment
All adding, swapping, dropping, or withdrawing from courses is completed in MavLINK.
Adding a Class
A class can be added to a student’s schedule via MavLINK until the 100% refund period ends. Start dates are found on the class schedule. Refund dates can be found on the Cashiering/Student Accounts site. Late adds begin after the 100% refund period ends and require permission from the instructor prior to enrollment in MavLINK. A $25.00 Late Registration Fee will be assessed to those students whose initial enrollment takes place after the start of the session. Exceptions to this are thesis, internship, or independent study.
Dropping/Withdrawing From a Class
A class can be dropped or withdrawn from a student’s schedule via MavLINK up until the last day to withdraw. The last day to withdraw can be found on the Academic Calendar. Students who are currently enrolled can click on the "refund" link next to each class in their schedule inside MavLINK. Students can also contact the Office of the University Registrar to verify the last day to withdraw. Requests to drop a class submitted via fax or U.S. mail will be processed based on the dates appearing on the fax or U.S. mail postmark.
Drops can only be completed in the 100% refund period of your course. If students drop the course from their schedule during this period, it will not be listed on their academic transcript.
Withdraws can be completed up until the last day to withdraw for the semester. The last day to withdraw can be found on the Academic Calendar. If students withdraw from a course, a grade of "W" will be listed on their academic transcript. "W" grades have no impact on the academic GPA.
Students who drop or withdraw from one or more classes, or who completely withdraw from all courses will be obligated to UNO for that portion of tuition that is indicated on the refund schedule. Students who completely withdraw are also obligated to pay the non-refundable portion of tuition and fees for the class(es) from which they are withdrawing.
Swapping a Class
Swapping a class allows students to reserve their space in the original class while trying to enroll for a new course. It's a safer way to make changes to their existing class schedule during periods in which a lot of other students are also enrolling for their classes.
- Swaps must be done on the same day.
- Swaps are allowed during the first week of the standard semester. For classes that are outside the regular session, it will be necessary to contact the Office of the University Registrar to complete a swap.
- Swaps are only allowed for classes in the same session.
- Classes used for swaps cannot be used again for another swap.
