Getting Started in ILUNO
Ready to get started? Here is what you need to know and need to do.
After you are admitted, pay the SEVIS fee to the U.S. government and read the reporting requirements in SEVIS & Immigration.
Students: Here's Where You Can Pay the I-901 SEVIS Fee
Regulation requires all prospective F and M students to pay the I-901 Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) Fee before the U.S. Department of State issues a student visa. Read this Study in the States FAQ to learn more about potential scams and where to properly pay the I-901 SEVIS Fee.
We will arrange housing for you. When you receive your visa, complete the ILUNO Housing Request. Please send your ILUNO Housing Request and arrival information at least 30 days prior to your program start date.
New ILUNO Students Living on UNO's Campus may request airport pickup or ask further questions via International Programs Office at email@example.com.
COVID-19 Testing and Quarantine
The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Service gives guidance on testing and quarantine following international travel. Review this information before you travel to the U.S. to plan for your arrival as a new international student: https://dhhs.ne.gov/Pages/COVID-19-Traveler-Recommendations.aspx.
Please contact the UNO International Office at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about self-quarantine on campus.
Let us know that you arrived in Omaha by completing the Check-In and New Student Compliance e-forms in iGlobal: https://iglobal.nebraska.edu. This is where you will upload a copy of your I-20 or DS-2019, passport, visa, and I-94 for International Advising to review before activating your SEVIS record. Update your local/current address in MavLINK.
Students transferring from another school in the United States should do the e-form requesting a transfer I-20. These should be done before or within the first two weeks of classes.
As we approach the fall semester and the return to campus, please make note that our office requires scheduled appointments and follows social distancing guidelines. Please check your email regularly for important updates and requirements. We look forward to welcoming you to UNO and Omaha!
ILUNO will provide an online orientation during the week before classes begin. At orientation students learn about important immigration regulations, SEVIS requirements, using the university's online resources, accessing health services, culture shock, safety, on-campus employment, and academic integrity.
You will also create an e-mail account and receive an ID card for accessing many campus services, such as the Health, Physical Education, and Recreation Building.
