Success Academy General Education Course
One benefit of the Success Academy is guaranteed enrollment in high demand general education classes. Students will receive a list of courses to choose from for their first semester when they meet with an advisor.
English Course (based on placement)
UNO students must complete foundational writing courses. The English Placement and Proficiency Exam (EPPE) is required for undergraduate students to determine placement into the appropriate English course. New students should complete the EPPE prior to Orientation to ensure appropriate course placement.
Once you register for the exam in MavLINK, you can take it at anytime. It is web-based, which allows you to take it wherever you have access to internet and a computer where you can download the Respondus Lockdown Browser. If you'd like to take it on campus instead, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
Mathematics Course (based on placement)
UNO students must complete three hours of coursework in this category. Math placement is determined by ACT or SAT sub-score (within 2 years). Students who don't have a valid ACT or SAT sub-score should complete the Accuplacer Math Placement Exam prior to Orientation to ensure appropriate course placement.
