Orientation and Arrival Details
We know there is a lot of uncertainty around the world right now due to COVID-19. We care about students’ health and safety. The university has implemented protocols like required face coverings, on-campus COVID-19 testing, and socially distanced classroom setups to ensure that in-person operations are as safe as possible.
At this time, the university plans to proceed with in-person instruction for the Spring 2021 semester. Classes begin Monday, January 25. If the university’s plans for Spring change, you will be notified via email. For now, here’s what students need to know about campus arrival and orientation:
- Campus Arrival: Students must arrive to Lincoln no later than Thursday, January 21. We recommend that students arrive on
January 19, 20, or 21 and that they fly into the Lincoln Municipal Airport (LNK) because it is closest to campus and most convenient. New Student Enrollment
will provide free transport from the Lincoln airport to campus on January 19-21. We do not recommend arriving before January 19.
- Based on current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, international students will not be required to quarantine upon arrival unless they have been a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
- Orientation: International Orientation has two parts. Both parts are required.
- Part 1: Online modules that contain information about academic success, health requirements, University Housing, immigration requirements, and more. Students will complete the modules from home at their convenience via internet before arriving to campus. Students who have paid the enrollment deposit will receive access instructions and more details in November.
- Part 2: In-person orientation on January 22 and 23. At in-person orientation, we will review information from the online orientation, answer questions, help students meet other students, introduce participants to buildings and resources on campus, and more.
This page will be updated as more information about arrival and orientation becomes available. In the meantime, please contact Teresa Lostroh, associate director of New Student Enrollment, with any questions via email atTeresa.Lostroh@unl.edu.
