Welcome to the First Year Summit!

The First Year Program Office wants to ensure a successful start to your first year at UNK. In order to do that, we want to encourage you to take this short online transition course on Blackboard.  Although this course will review some of the things you learned at New Student Enrollment, this course will go more in depth with campus information and will also teach you how to have a successful transition to UNK prior to move-in day.

Through this course you will:

  • Discover more in depth information about UNK resources like:
    • Student & Greek Life
    • Residence Life
    • Academic & Career Services
    • Health Care
    • and many more
  • Learn how to use your blackboard and myBlue accounts.
    • Understanding the basics of these two accounts prior to your arrival will put you steps ahead in the classroom. 

Once you complete the Summit, you will be able to go back into Blackboard and access the information you learned at any time.
