The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Education Abroad Office (EAO) allows its students to select from a wide variety of programs abroad, available through a range of institutions and organizations. Given the range of choices student have, UNL Education Abroad has developed policies to ensure transparency with regard to program access and UNL's relationships to various institutions and organizations that provide program opportunities.
Programs Available to UNL StudentsUNL encourages students to select programs abroad from a wide range of available options. To see a full listing of all program types available to UNL students, visit our Program Page. Additionally, institutional, federal and state financial aid can be used across this broad range of programs, depending on academic rationale, student eligibility and parameters set by various grantors.
Education Abroad Fair
UNL Education Abroad allows representatives of affiliated partners to participate in the Education Abroad Fair by invitation. Contact UNL Education Abroad regarding the cost of participation. Fairs are held twice a year, once at the end of January and another at the end of September. Inquiries to participate may be made to email@example.com.
Recruiting Policies and Procedures
UNL Education Abroad welcomes representatives of affiliated partners, which provide programs abroad of potential interest to UNL students, to visit UNL. Inquiries should be made NO LESS THAN two weeks in advance of the proposed visit. Representatives are limited to one visit per term.
UNL Education Abroad is the central advising body for ALL education abroad opportunities. All UNL students MUST work through this office to receive authorization for enrollment in programs.
Facebook Posting Policies
UNL Education Abroad allows representatives to post announcements on the UNL Education Abroad Facebook page up to once a month. Content will be monitored by UNL Education Abroad, which reserves the right to remove any content that it deems to be misleading or violates any policy.
UNL programs, schools and departments ask that representatives NOT contact them directly to try to arrange appointments with faculty members, advisors or administrators. Only if there are compelling reasons to do so will UNL Education Abroad attempt to arrange private appointments for representatives. UNL Education Abroad works very closely with these individuals and can offer an assessment of the potential level of interest and feasibility of such opportunities.
Ongoing Representation on Campus
It is important that organizations who employ student returnees to promote programs on campus have students identify themselves to UNL Education Abroad as soon as they return to UNL. UNL Education Abroad will guide the students to refer interested students to UNL Education Abroad so they can follow the proper application processes for their program of interest as well as learn about alternative program options. UNL Education Abroad cannot facilitate reserving a space at the Nebraska Union booth for student representatives. Student representatives may seek assistance from the RSO, UNL Globetrotters.
Planning a Campus Visit?
UNL Education Abroad can authorize a reservation for a table space in the Nebraska Union (student union building). A staff member of UNL Education Abroad is required by the Nebraska Union to be present during tabling. Table space is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a flat fee of $50. Space is subject to availability. Notice: UNL Education Abroad regrets that it may not be able to accommodate all requests for table reservations or meetings.
Representatives will be asked to meet with a member of UNL Education Abroad prior to interaction with UNL students on campus. At this time we will review relevant institutional procedures and policies (credit transfer, portability of financial aid, etc.) that are important to understand. Returning representatives should meet briefly with a member of the staff so that any updates can be exchanged.
How to Announce Your Campus Visit
- UNL Education Abroad can place your visit on the UNL Education Abroad and UNL Calendar of Events.
- Representatives may contact our office directly in order to identify additional methods of making their presence on campus known, possibly including e-mail contact* with students who have applied or shown interest in their programs, e-mail contact* with former program participants on campus, a flyer to be posted, etc.
*UNL Education Abroad should receive copies of any such e-mail correspondence.
Due to limited space, UNL Education Abroad may not be able to keep large numbers of flyers, brochures and view books in our library. We encourage you to contact the Education Abroad Senior Coordinator to determine if additional materials are needed.
UNL Education Abroad asks representatives to not put up flyers or posters without first making a request to UNL Education Abroad at least two weeks prior. Materials can only remain posted for 30 days.
