UNO's international student advisors have many years of experience and the biggest hearts in the business. Meet Your Advisor.

Thank you very much for your time and patience! The international staff at UNO is simply amazing!

Thank you very much, Jennifer, for your constant support and quick response. I am glad that I studied at UNO, where I get such constant support and cooperation from you. Thank you once again for your cooperation.

I would like to thank you and all the staff at UNO for the wonderful time Luiza had there during these last four months. Not only did it exceed my expectations, but Luiza herself is very grateful for the support you and the staff gave her.

How can International Advising help me?

UNO's international student advisors have many years of experience in advising students from all over the world; if you have a problem or a question, just ask - they have probably resolved a similar issue before.

It is helpful if you read these web pages thoroughly so that you fully understand your legal obligations and other important notices regarding your education and your stay in the United States. Check back frequently for updates and important reminders. If you don't find the answer to your question here, call 402.554.2293 or stop by Arts & Sciences Hall 241 to make an appointment.

Remember that international student advisors are not your academic advisor. For guidance on choosing a course of study or enrolling in the proper courses, or to clear an advising hold on your registration, contact the academic advisor in your college or department. If you don't know who your academic advisor is, check out the contacts for your college at UNO's Academic Advising portal.

Important reminders

Don't forget to:

  • Give us copies of all immigration documents - DS-2019, Form I-20, Passport, Visa, and I-94.
  • Renew your passport before it expires. Keep your immigration documents up-to-date.
  • Maintain full-time status and attend your classes all semester.
  • Update your address in Mavlink or in ASH 241 within 10 days of moving.
