Canvas is the Learning Management System used by the UNMC campus to facilitate curriculum and learning.   After registration, students can find their course and syllabi in Canvas once the semester starts.  This is also where incoming students will go to complete FAST START Orientation requirements. 


 Immunizations (On-Campus Programs only)

Submit your required immunizations to UNMC’s Student Health before August 1, 2019.

UNMC Student Health is now accepting all immunization records (new and updated) online using MyRecords. Please log on and click on Access Immunization Center.  Instructions for the process are provided once you log in.
