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 registrar@uaf.edu. The request must be sent from your @alaska.edu 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.

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 cafrank@alaska.edu.

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.
