Despite the rain, music fans popped open their umbrellas and surrounded UNO's Henningson Memorial Campanile on Sunday morning for the annual July 4th Carillon Concert. UNO carilloneur Shannon Richards ascended the tower to the keyboard to perform 30 minutes of patriotic music.
Single Payment Billing Starts With the Fall Semester
Beginning with the fall 2010 semester, UNO will introduce a single payment billing schedule instead of the two-payment option that was previously available to students. This change is in conjunction with the University of Nebraska system-wide implementation of the new PeopleSoft student information system software.
"The revised single payment billing schedule helps to streamline the billing process and provides a common payment schedule from semester to semester," said Bill Conley, vice chancellor for Business and Finance.
The fall 2010 billing statement will be generated on Monday, Aug. 30, with the payment due in full on Thursday, Sept. 23.
In addition, E-bills will be the only method of sending out billing statements. Students will no longer have the option to receive paper-billing statements by mail. Therefore, it is very important for students to monitor their UNO e-mail accounts.
Students or parents who have questions or concerns should contact the Cashiering/Student Accounts Office at 554.2324 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Up to Top
New mavlink Interface Reminder for Faculty
mavlink Faculty Support Team members remind faculty that UNO has transitioned from E-BRUNO to mavlink over the summer. Faculty members need to know about changes that have been made to the interface.
Faculty members who logged on to mavlink during the spring or early summer might have seen both a "Faculty Center" and a "PeopleSoft" button (and possibly a "Staff" tab as well). These have now all been collapsed under the "Faculty Center" button to eliminate navigating back and forth for faculty members who also serve as an advisor. Screens will not have all of the advising functions for those who do not serve as an adviser.
The team continues to work on training tutorials, training sessions and a website where faculty members can find mavlink information. Watch eNotes for more information, and let team members know of any questions or concerns at email@example.com or contact a mavlink Faculty Support Team member directly at:
