Transfer & Readmit Students
New student orientation is a two-part process for all incoming transfer and readmitted students at UNO and consists of online orientation and enrollment advising. Completing your online orientation and enrolling in classes is just the beginning of your college experience at UNO.
Registering for Orientation
- In your MavLINK account, click the “Undergrad Orientation Signup” link. This can be found in the Admissions drop down menu located on the left-hand side of the home page. The registration form will pop-up in a separate window.
- Review your personal information and intended major before completing the form.
- Follow the instructions for registration.
Your orientation experience is completely facilitated online. This mandatory online orientation program will introduce you to success resources, academic expectations, and campus life at UNO.
You can access online orientation via the Student Success Community course in your Canvas account located on your dashboard.
Online orientation takes approximately 120 minutes to complete and can be completed in multiple sessions. The program is divided into modules that include video and written content and a short quiz that must be completed before moving onto the next module. After completing all of the required orientation modules, you must complete a comprehensive quiz.
Your orientation hold will be removed within one (1) business day of passing the comprehensive quiz.

After your online orientation requirement is complete, you will set up for an advising appointment in order to enroll in your fall semester classes. Bring unofficial copies of transcripts from your previous institutions to your appointment.
To schedule an appointment with your advisor, locate the appropriate Academic Advising office and phone number and give them a call.
You need to submit your immunization records to the Nebraska Medicine UNO Health Center. See additional information about this process.
