ILUNO Resources: Where can I go if I need help?
For academic (class) help, talk to your teachers. They might also have you talk with the Intensive English director in the International Programs Office (241 ASH).
For other help, talk to the International Advisors in the International Programs Office (241 ASH). They’ve had many years of experience helping students from around the world. If you have a problem or a question, just ask!
They can help with issues like:
- Visa/I-20/passport/travel matters—all issues concerning Immigration regulations
- Attendance—you can talk to advisors about personal problems that keep you from going to class
- Housing concerns (on or off campus)
- Legal problems (for referrals)
- Medical problems
- Personal or adjustment problems
Cultural Note: Be sure to make an appointment (a meeting) with your teachers, the director, and the International Advisors.
Please remember, whenever you make an appointment, you need to go to your appointment and arrive on time. If you are late or cannot go to the appointment, you should call or email to cancel it.
What to Do on Campus: ILUNO, International Programs, and UNO Activities
Don’t forget to check your UNO email for updates from ILUNO and International Programs about on-campus and campus-sponsored events!
You can also look at the International Activity Calendar (Under Related Resources) on the Advising’s Getting Started page.
UNO Technology: Email and Canvas
ILUNO students are required to use Canvas, UNO’s learning management system, for many of their courses and for completing course evaluations at the end of each session.
ILUNO students also set up their UNO email account at the beginning of their ILUNO program during orientation and should continue to check this email account for important updates and information on activities at UNO.
You can find the links to access Canvas and your student email account at my.unomaha.edu. You can also find information on password assistance on this site as well, including how to look up your NUID and NetID and to reset your passwords.
New ILUNO Students
Attending class is important for language learning and academic advancement. Missing many classes may result in dismissal from ILUNO, complicating a student's immigration status, and financial aid. Please review the following attendance policy.
Contact your advisor if you have questions or if you have problems that cause you to miss classes.
