What to Expect at Family Orientation
Orientation for spring admits does not offer a Family Orientation option.
Family members are highly encouraged to attend UNO's Family Orientation, which is available during all summer First Year and Transfer Orientation sessions.
Orientation will provide an opportunity to learn about university life, meet campus administrators and faculty, and make connections with other UNO families. Family Orientation will take place at the same time as your student's Orientation. There are, however, different activities planned for students and for families.
Registration is required in advance to attend our Family Orientation and space is limited. To guarantee that you are able to attend Family Orientation on the same day as your student, please sign up at the same time as your student. Except for the Thompson Learning Community events, there is a registration fee of $35 for each person attending the First Year Student Family Orientation and a registration fee of $15 for each person attending the Transfer Student Family Orientation.
Family Orientation refund requests must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than one week prior to the event. Requests made less than one week prior to the event will not be granted.
How to Register for Family Orientation
Family Orientation registration is tied to your student's registration. If your student has not yet registered for an Orientation session, they can do so through their MavLINK account. Students can enter guest information after selecting a date for their Orientation session.
If your student has already registered for an Orientation session, they can add guests through their MavLINK account by selecting Change/Update My Orientation Session link within the Orientation registration system.
Registration for Family Orientation closes one week prior to orientation sessions to provide our office adequate time to prepare for the event. If you need to make changes to your registration within a week of your orientation, you will need to do so on-site at orientation.
