Parent/Spouse/Guest Information

Your student’s orientation day is their first step to a successful transition to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

You're Important To Their Success

Share in your student's discovery of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. While your student is attending New Student Enrollment we encourage parents and guests to attend a program just for you. We're your partner in supporting your student as they transition to UNL. Ask questions, we'd love to help.

You’ll learn the procedures, resources, and traditions of this institution. We'll introduce you to the academic resources and services available to your student and throughout the day, students and faculty will be available to answer questions regarding the process of enrollment or about the new university environment.

Note: only students will be participating in the advising and registration aspects of the New Student Enrollment program.
