Here are some things you can do to speed up the enrollment process and get you thinking "spring":
- Check for any enrollment holds: log in to MavLINK and check for any enrollment holds that would prevent you from registering for classes. Chat with your academic advisor if you have questions about the holds.
Add classes to your cart: this will help inform discussions you have with your advisor prior to youre registration time and make the process faster when it's time to enroll
Find a fun course you'd like to take: Using the class search page, find a fun course you'd like to take. If you're concerned it won't fit your degree plan, talk to you advisor to see how the course or similar course may meet some elective requirements.
Determine which modality (how a course is delivered) works best for you: read on below to learn more about the variety of ways courses are offered at UNO. Take special note of "synchornous" (meet at scheduled dates and times) and "asynchoronus" (students are able to interact with each other and the instructor at flexible hours) when you're adding classes to your cart for Spring 2022.
Explore courses in the Open Nebraska program: Beginning with the Spring 2022 semester schedule, UNO students will now be able to search for which classes are a part of Open Nebraska as they select and register for specific course sections.

In order to provide flexibility and options for all of our students, courses will be offered in four different course modalities, which will range from fully in-person and on campus to asynchronous online course offerings.

- Remote instruction: instructors and students meet synchronously using digital technology (eg: Zoom) at the scheduled times according to the Registrar’s calendar. (820 sections)
- Hybrid instruction: a mix of in-person instruction and either remote or online instruction, with reduced contact time on campus. (860 sections)
- Online instruction: asynchronous instructor-student interactions using digital technology, with students able to interact with each other and the instructor at flexible hours. (850 sections)
When you are ready to enroll, make sure you check any holds or information you need to complete ahead of your available enrollment time through MavLINK. Your registration time and enrollment holds information can also be found on MavLINK. The system will not allow you to enroll prior to your scheduled time.
Work with your academic advisor to make sure the courses you want to take will keep you on track to graduate on target as well as on time. You can use our Class Search page to see what classes are available.
Students who have questions about which courses they should enroll in to meet the requirements for their program should work directly with an advisor within their respective programs.
As you explore which course modality is right for you, you may have questions about what fee changes may be involved with certain classes, or what certain fees cover as part of your UNO experience.
