Welcome to the University of Nebraska Medical Center! 


We are excited that you have chosen UNMC to enhance your academic and professional backgrounds.  The Office of Global Engagement (OGE) serves as a key resource to the University’s community of international students and we are here to help you adjust and succeed as well as provide information to help you maintain your immigration status.  The OGE hosts a mandatory three-day international student orientation program for new-to-the-US students, coordinated prior to the start of the fall semester courses and the Ambassador program to support new international students.  We provide professional expertise and support to international students from the time of admission to beyond graduation.

Given the current global COVID-19 situation, we know that you are concerned about getting a U.S. student visa and arriving in time for the fall semester. We want to assure you that despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Nebraska Medical Center will continue to provide you with the current information you need to successfully navigate your way here.

Since we are in an environment of always evolving information, please make sure to regularly check UNMC’s COVID-19 update page for important information and updates. We will keep updating this page with new information or guidance as they become available.  

Soon you will be able to enroll in classes and begin your formal study program.  It is extremely important to maintain your immigration status until you graduate!  Visit our Additional Resources page to access a variety of useful information about UNMC and Omaha! 

We want to ensure that you will always feel comfortable here in Omaha and call the University of Nebraska Medical Center your home away from home.  Please do not hesitate to contact us at if you have any questions or concerns.
