Advising and registration
Now that you're a Nanook, it's time to meet with your academic advisor and register for classes. Your academic advisor will be your guide to UAF, connecting you with your program and helping you find the tools you need to succeed.
Before you can register for classes, be sure to:
- Set-up your UA username and password. This is what you will use to access your student account and registration.
- Confirm that we have your current SAT, ACT, or Accuplacer scores, as well as any scores
from AP or IB exams you've taken. These scores will place you in English and other core classes that
have an English prerequisite.
- For Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 Writing Placement, UAF is offering an alternative option
for writing placement, available to those who are unable to take the Accuplacer or
ACT/SAT exams. Visit the UAF spring/summer 2021 writing placement website to get started.
- For students with a HS GPA of 3.0 or higher, no placement test is required. We do encourage students to take the placement test if they have been out of school
for many years or if they have concerns/anxiety about writing classes.
- For Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 Writing Placement, UAF is offering an alternative option for writing placement, available to those who are unable to take the Accuplacer or ACT/SAT exams. Visit the UAF spring/summer 2021 writing placement website to get started.
- Take the ALEKS Math Placement. Nearly every program requires a math course and your scores help to place you in
math and other core classes that have a math prerequisite.
- Contact your academic advisor to schedule an appointment. If you can't make it to campus, most advisors will meet with you over the phone and via email. Once your courses have been approved by your advisor, you can register using UAOnline.
Class registration begins in early April for the the fall semester, early November for the spring semester and early February for summer semester.
