You must create an account for the online application. The system will give you 30 days to complete the application from the time you begin. You can save your work and go back to it for up to 30 days, but the information will be erased after the 30 days are over.

The online system will email the letter of recommendation form to the recommenders, so please tell them to expect an email from UNO, because it may end up in their spam mailbox.
