Welcome to UNL W.H. Thompson Scholars!
College is an exciting and challenging time for freshmen and their families, so we've prepared an orientation program focused on helping to make a smooth transition to life as a Husker. Because we want our students to be successful, we require all new freshmen to attend New Student Enrollment (NSE). NSE will provide freshmen will an opportunity to register for classes, meet their fellow Huskers, learn about co-curricular opportunities and learn how to be a successful student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
1. Reserve a New Student Enrollment
Dates for NSE are based upon each student's major. The Explore Center must be selected as the college of choice for all students who are undecided.
NSE dates run from mid-June to mid-July and is an all-day program from 7:15am to 4:15pm. When filling out guest information please do not include yourself as a guest. Make your reservation today!
All W.H. Thompson Scholars will need to attend the information session on the day of their New Student Enrollment. You must attend the W.H. Thompson information session in the morning, and you must check out before you leave for the day. Detailed information about the W.H. Thompson information session will be e-mailed to you prior to start of NSE. Please keep checking your email for up to date information.
