Congratulations on your
Admission! We are excited that you have chosen UNK to advance your educational goals. To
help ensure your journey as a new graduate student begins smoothly, please
review the following:
Admission Letter — Please pay close attention to the wording in your
admission letter. If you have been conditionally admitted, it is
important that you understand what these conditions are and successfully
complete them in a timely manner. Registration for future terms may be restricted
until conditions have been met. Log in to your MyBlue Portal account (with
theNUID and password you created upon applying) and look for ‘hold’ information
that may restrict future registration due to conditional admission. Your
NUID is also located in the top right hand corner of your admit letter.
Advisor — To view your advisor’s name
and contact information, Log into your MyBlue account, click on the
“Student Center” button, then click on the ‘academics’ tab, then click the gold
triangle to the left of “Program & Advisor”.
Degree Audit — Your official Program of
Study/Degree Audit is interactive with your UNK registration, so as you
register and complete courses, your degree audit will show your progress.
To view your electronic Degree Audit, log into your MyBlue account and click on
the degree audit link listed in the left hand menu under the “Academics”
Class Search — To search for courses
offered each semester, go to the MyBlue Home page (before you
log in) click on the red button “Search UNK Course Schedule” to look for
courses offered each semester. You can define searches by mode of instruction
(Web-based), career, days offered and many more criteria.
Registration — New Students begin registering for classes during general registration. Registration dates can be found on the Academic Calendar listed in your MyBlue account. Once you are activated for registration, click on
the red “Student Center” button. Registration is a three step process, so
make sure that you complete all steps required. For a more detailed step
by step process view the tutorial.
Books — Need a book for
your class? Search for
required books online.
eMail account— You will be assigned a UNK
LoperMail account once you have enrolled for classes.
Please see the attached information sheet
for additional information. Your LoperMail account will be the primary
mechanism by which the University communicates important information to you, so
make sure to check it often. Log into your MyBlue account and in the
left hand menu click on ‘email addresses’ in the Personal Information
Section. If you have been assigned a Lopermail account it will show.
BlackBoard — Blackboard is UNK’s online
classroom. Once enrolled in an online class, you will need to create an
EASI password (this same password is used for Lopermail) to be able to log into
Blackboard. If you are enrolled in a course on MyBlue and it is not
showing up in Blackboard, your instructor has not made the course available.
Once your instructor makes the course available, you will see it in your list
of courses. Most instructors do not make a course available until the
first day of class. If you have any questions about when this course will
be available, contact the instructor.
