My UAOnline PIN doesn't work. Help!

If you forget your PIN, or need your PIN reset:

  1. At UAOnline, enter your student ID number under "Login to Secured Area." Select "Forgot PIN."
  2. If you were not able to reset your PIN using the "Forgot PIN" question, do one of the following:
    • Bring a picture ID to the Office of Admissions and the Registrar to request a PIN reset.
    • Email a scanned copy of your picture ID and request to reset PIN to The request must be sent from your email account and should indicate "PIN reset" in the subject line. You will be contacted by email once reset.
    • Contact the Office of Admissions and the Registrar at 907-474-7500 to request a PIN reset. You will be asked a series of security questions before we are able to reset your PIN.

A directory or confidentiality hold on your records will require you to present a picture ID at a local campus to have a PIN reset.

A Message from the UAF Writing Center

My name is Eric-Alain Parker. I am a UAF graduate student, the UAF Writing Center TA, and a tutor. I am contacting writing intensive course instructors across the state to remind them of the free services we offer to all students and community members, even those outside of Fairbanks.

We employ a full staff of graduate level tutors who are trained to give writing and formatting advice on any project at any stage of conception -- from brainstorming to final edits. For those of you unable to meet us on-site, we offer distance tutorials by phone from 7-10 pm on Monday through Thursday , and from 1-6pm on Sundays.
Any interested students should contact us by phone at (907) 474-5314 to set up an appointment. We will ask students to email us a draft of their work (or prompt if they haven't yet started) at least an hour before the designated appointment time for review:

Visit for more information. We look forward to working with you.

Email Listserves

Email communication is a vital part of the Rural Development program, especially for students away from the Fairbanks campus. Students and faculty use email routinely to share information about the program, degree requirements, scholarship and job opportunities, course planning and related matters. All students in the program are expected to be able to access email.

To facilitate easy communication with all the students and faculty, we've established a "discussion list" for all students, faculty, and staff involved in the program. The discussion list are entitled:

RDMasters-L (for M.A. students)

CRCD-UndergradRD (for B.A. students)

(Click on the link to subscribe to the listserve)

You can subscribe to it at no cost. If you have any trouble adding your email, please send a subscription request to Crystal Frank at

Once your subscribed you will recieve regular updates from faculty and staff and fellow students. Feel free to send your own messages on the listserves, but keep in mind that it will be sent to all subscibers and that they should be program related.
