Important priority registration, academic advising, and tutoring update

March 16, 2020

This message was distributed through Next@Nebraska.

As you know, classes are shifting exclusively to remote instruction on March 30. The university is committed to providing you with the same quality learning experience as in-person instruction. Please be patient with your instructors as they adjust your courses. An updated plan for each course should be available to you in Canvas by the evening of March 29.

Priority registration begins April 6

To give you additional time to connect with your academic advisor, priority registration is moving to April 6. Your individual student enrollment appointment (the time you may begin registering) in MyRED will be reassigned. Check MyRED during spring break to find your new appointment time.

Academic advisors are available to help you plan for fall registration by phone, video, email and in-person with appropriate social distancing. Check with academic advising for the best way to schedule an appointment.

Remote learning resources

Here are some resources to help you with the move to remote instruction:

  • A guide for remote learning can be found at teaching.unl.edu/keep-learning.
  • The Center for Academic Success and Transition has regular business hours this week. Students can meet with success coaches in-person with social distancing measures in place and via Zoom, Skype, phone, email, and text messaging. Appointments can be scheduled in MyPLAN or by contacting CAST at 402-472-1880 and success@unl.edu.
  • Advising resources continue to be available online in MyRED, MyDegreeAudit, Undergraduate Catalog and MyPLAN. The Enrollment Scheduler and Degree Planner are both available within MyRED.
