Comprehensive first-year advising provides foundational skills, resources and academic support for students during their initial 30 credits for four-year degree programs. First-year advisors partner with departmental advisors to provide students with a solid foundation that will assist them throughout the completion of their degree.
Beginning in the fall of 2023, the Academic Advising Center will be advising all first-year students who are newly admitted to degree programs or have completed less than 30 credits at UAF.
After completing 30 credits, students seeking a degree within the College of Liberal Arts will meet with one of our CLA advisors.
If you are a first-year student or have completed less than 30 credits at UAF, please visit the Academic Advising Center for resources tailored to you!
