Supporting College Bound Heritage Spanish Speakers

The college transit can be difficult enough. For students who are non-English speakers, and who are first generation college students, the transition is highly challenging. The University of Nebraska Lincoln offers students and their families tours and information in Spanish. UNL’s Spanish Visit Days are on select Saturdays. Pre-registration is suggested. Attendance qualifies students for a Nebraska Emerging Leaders tuition scholarship worth $2,000.

Providing orientation and enrollment support in languages other than English is becoming more common.

Other schools with Spanish Language Preview Days are:

  • University of Nebraska Kearney–Conozca UNK
  • University of Nebraska Omaha—

Somos Familia

  • Wayne State College—

Dia de Familia
