ILUNO Intensive English
Beyond Intensive English
International students who plan to attend an undergraduate program at UNO are encouraged to complete both the ILUNO intensive English and undergraduate program applications at the same time. Students may receive Conditional Admission into their undergraduate academic programs.
As soon as conditionally admitted ILUNO students meet the language proficiency requirement and submit updated financial documentation for undergraduate study, they can begin their undergraduate studies in a degree program.

The Advantage Track (AT-UNO) Program is offered to currently enrolled ILUNO students who plan to study at UNO after they finish the ILUNO program. The program is available for most undergraduate majors. Students enroll in the AT-UNO Program as an alternative to the TOEFL.
While enrolled in ILUNO, students meet regularly with an AT-UNO advisor to discuss academic progress. Before completing ILUNO coursework, students take three proficiency exams in college-level reading, writing, and oral communication. For additional information, review the Advantage Track Presentation.
Who can enroll in the Advantage Track (AT-UNO) Program?
AT-UNO is open to ILUNO students planning to attend UNO as undergraduates. However, it is not open to students who plan to major in English, Engineering, or Education.
AT-UNO is for undergraduate students only, not graduate students.
What are the requirements for the AT-UNO Program?
The AT-UNO Program can accelerate your academic career, but it requires hard work. Students must:
- Take all required ILUNO classes
- Show good attendance
- Earn good grades
- Pass three (3) final proficiency exams in reading, writing, and oral communication
How long does it take to finish the AT-UNO Program?
Time in the AT-UNO Program depends on each individual’s English level. If your current English level is:
- 1500 Intermediate, you will need 3-4 sessions of ILUNO classes (6-8 months of English study)
- 1600 High Intermediate, you will need 2-3 sessions of ILUNO classes (4-6 months of English study)
- 1700 Advanced level, you will need 1-2 sessions of ILUNO classes (2-4 months of English study)
