Registration by MyBlue
Students register for classes using MyBLUE, the interactive web interface. This system allows students to register, drop and add classes, check an existing class schedule and obtain information on registration holds and grades. MyBLUE also offers access to address information, the complete schedule of classes, account balance, transcripts, degree audit and financial aid. To access MyBLUE go to myblue.unk.edu. See the Registrar's Office website at www.unk.edu/offices/registrar for upcoming registration dates and complete registration instructions.
Currently enrolled UNK students can register early for the upcoming semester. All students must meet with their assigned academic advisor prior to registering for classes during the early registration period. The registration system will NOT allow these students to register until they have consulted with their advisor. The Registrar's Office website at www.unk.edu/offices/registrar contains specific registration procedures and appointment times. Students are encouraged to use MyBLUE to check for any "holds" (fines, outstanding fees, other obligations) that might prevent them from accessing the registration option.
Open Registration precedes the beginning of classes for the semester. Any admitted student can register during this time. A new student or a former student who has not attended University of Nebraska at Kearney for two years or more (for both undergraduate and graduate students), must complete the online application available at www.unk.edu/apply prior to registration.
For specific details regarding dates, locations, and procedures, students should refer directly to the Registrar's Office website at www.unk.edu/offices/registrar.
Initial registration after the first week of the semester (Fall or Spring) or after the first class day (Summer) is considered late and a $15 late fee will be charged. In order to process a late registration, students must have written permission from the instructor of each course for which they wish to register and they must complete their registration at the Registrar's Office, Warner Hall from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Tuition and all fees are due at the time of registration and failure to pay at that time will result in late charges and prepayment for future terms.
Beginning the third week of the semester or the third day of a summer class, students wishing to register must have permission from the course instructor, department chair, and the dean of the college for each class in which they plan to enroll. Students cannot register for full semester classes following the fourth week of the term.
New Student Enrollment
Admitted students beginning their academic career at UNK will find pertinent information at the required one-day New Student Enrollment. Students' parents are also encouraged to participate in the day's activities to learn about UNK's academic expectations and methods to maintain academic success. Admitted students will meet one-on-one with skilled academic advisors to select classes and register for the fall semester. Reservations can be made with the Office of Admissions, (308) 865-8526 or 1-800-KEARNEY or online at www.unk.edu/nse.
Blue & Gold Welcome Week
Prior to the beginning of classes, first year students are required to participate in a schedule of interesting and informative events that will assist their transition into student life at the University. Events and presentations will help students to find a sense of belongingness and Loper pride as well as academic independence at UNK. Presenters throughout Blue Gold Welcome include UNK staff and faculty, thus allowing students to not only meet the people who will be assisting them with a successful university experience, but who will also be equipping them with the tools necessary to flourish. Additional information can be obtained by calling the First Year Program at (308) 865-8291, or by going to the First Year Program or Welcome website, www.unk.edu/welcome, or www.unk.edu/firstyear.
