Office of New Student Orientation

Welcome to UNO!

New Student Orientation (NSO) is designed to assist you with the transition to UNO's academic and student life, provide you an opportunity to become familiar with your college, meet faculty and administrators, and to help you register for your first semester of classes. It is a chance to make new friends and begin your academic life positively.

Would you like to get a jump start on your first semester at UNO? Considering looking into our STEM Scholar camps!
