New Student Onboarding

The Office of Academic Success is here to assist you with the steps all new students need to complete before the first day of classes.

There may be additional steps and differences depending on your college, program, and/or campus. Students should review the college-specific onboarding pages located below. The pages will list additional steps and/or different procedures specific to your program.

Most importantly, check your UNMC email frequently. Critical information will be sent to that email.
