Advising and Registration

Every semester, each Honors student meets with Program Coordinator Kerrie Dufseth to register for Honors classes. The student enjoys individualized attention and early registration before the general student population. Ms. Dufseth sets appointments for the students and they discuss class options and enroll the student during the appointment so there is an increased chance the student is able to register for the classes they want.

Honors House Use

The Honors House is a red carpet portal with a warm and welcoming atmosphere for UAF students entering into college life. It is located at 520 Copper Ln. on the UAF campus, west of the Wood Center. We proudly announced our refurbished house in Fall 2011. This spacious and renovated day use facility includes:

  • Kitchen applicances,

  • Honors staff offices

We encourage students to consider the house as theirs, but with a few University and admistrative house use guidelines that can be found in our Standard Operating Procedure Manual.
