Academics

  • UNL CANVAS – Starting this Fall, engineering courses on Scott Campus will be hosted on the UNL Canvas platform. You will have non-engineering classes in UNO Canvas and engineering classes in UNL Canvas.
  • SCOTT CAMPUS STUDENTS:
    • All of your non-engineering classes taught on the Scott or Dodge Campus will follow the UNO Academic Calendar, with classes beginning August 24 and ending December 12. This schedule includes a break for Labor Day and Fall Break October 19-20.
    • Engineering classes taught ONLY on the Scott or Dodge Campus (this includes all Freshman, Sophomore and Junior level and most Senior level engineering courses) will follow the UNO Academic Calendar, with classes beginning August 24 and ending December 12. This schedule includes a break for Labor Day and Fall Break October 19-20. After Thanksgiving Holiday, students will be able to participate remotely in engineering classes.
    • Engineering courses taught simultaneously on both the Scott Campus and City Campus (i.e., distance classes) will follow UNL’s academic calendar. These courses begin August 17 (the first week is online only) and end November 25 with no breaks. Your instructor will let you know if this is the case for that course, as well as the schedule for the Final Exam.
