New Student Enrollment Information

Welcome to UNK!  We are excited that you are joining our community of students!  As you eagerly anticipate the start to your UNK experience, the following information may be helpful to you.  We want your transition to UNK to be as smooth and worry-free as possible.

  • Student Email – UNK uses Microsoft Office 365 for student email. Upon enrollment in classes, ALL students are assigned a “LoperMail” account. The password is the same password you use to log into MyBLUE.  Be sure to check your UNK email account frequently.  More information is available at unk.edu/office365.

  • Student eBill Information – You will receive a notification in your LoperMail email account when your bill is available. This email will direct you to log in to MyBLUE to access your bill. Failure to receive a billing email notification will NOT be an acceptable excuse for missing the payment deadline. Fall billing due date is September 23, 2021. Accounts not paid by the due date will be assessed late charges.  If you have questions, please contact the UNK Finance Office at 308-865-8524 or email unkfinance@unk.edu.

Please Note:  You are considered officially enrolled and are accountable for all tuition and related fees. If your plans have changed and you will not be attending UNK, you must drop your classes via MyBLUE.  Any refund will be calculated based on the appropriate refund schedule. Failure to attend class meetings does NOT constitute withdrawal from the class and does NOT eliminate the obligation to pay all tuition and related fees. Please make sure your permanent mailing address is correct on MyBLUE so you can be informed of important deadlines. If you need help with this procedure please contact the Registrar’s Office at 308-865-8527

  • LMS: Canvas - The Learning Management System (LMS) is used by most instructors to teach their classes.
    1. Log into Canvas with your UNK username (the part of your LoperMail email address before the @) and password.
    2. Find your course(s).
      • Most courses will not show up until the start of the semester or shortly before.
