To enroll in a dual enrollment course, students must register through the UNHS Store as well as the UNO website. Via email, the student's guardian must approve the registration with UNO, and UNHS or the local school where the student is enrolled full time must verify the GPA. Upon approval, UNO will register and bill the students. Students may register for dual enrollment credit with UNO at any time prior to completing the eligible UNHS course. See UNO registration and completion deadlines below.
