New Student and Family Programs

New Student and Family Programs provides support for all new undergraduate students, both entering freshmen and transfer students, and their families as they get acquainted with the University.  Orientation is the mandatory program that prepares students for a successful start at UNO. This experience introduces students to campus resources, academic expectations, and tools to thrive during your time at UNO.

There are a variety of options for students to complete orientation including: first year student orientation, transfer student orientation, adult learner orientation (students 21 years of age or older; those with dependents), Military/Veteran orientation, and online orientation (available to all transfer students, students 21 years of age or older, or those who live outside of 250 miles from campus).
