We're here to help you transition to UNO.
International Student and Scholar Advising
UNO's international advisers have many years of experience in advising students from all over the world; if you have a problem or a question, just ask - they have probably resolved a similar issue before.
It is helpful if you read these web pages thoroughly so that you fully understand your legal obligations and other important notices regarding your education and your stay in the United States. Check back frequently for updates and important reminders. If you don't find the answer to your question here, call 402.554.2293 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember that international advisers are not your academic adviser. For guidance on choosing a course of study or enrolling in the proper courses, or to clear an advising hold on your registration, contact the academic advisor in your college or department. If you don't know who your academic advisor is, check out the contacts for your college at UNO's Academic Advising portal.
Chat with Advisors
This is a zoom session on the first Monday of each month, beginning at noon (12:00pm CST). This is a forum for international students to ask international advisors questions about immigration related concerns, academics, and work matters. Discussions vary as a form of extended orientation covering questions about health, insurance, driver's licenses, and more. More information is sent to international students by email.
Tea with Jaisy
Tea with Jaisy is a weekly opportunity for international students to have confidential, casual conversations about life in the U.S. and on campus with a UNO Counselor and other international students who have had similar experiences. More information is sent to international students by email.
Employment, Travel, and Legal Matters
International students should be aware of the rules that affect their ability to work in the United States and to travel internationally during their time at UNO.
International Student Housing Options
International students may choose among several on-campus housing options or live in nearby privately owned apartment complexes.
