Class Registration

"Registration" is the process of signing up for your classes.  You will have to register for your classes every semester.  Undergraduate students must meet with your academic advisor.

Graduate students must meet with their academic advisor before registering the first semester.  It is not necessary for the following semesters.

It's never too early to start thinking about the steps you'll need to complete to register for classes. Once you have finished your admissions application and received your letter of acceptance you can begin the registration process.

The course registration process is completed through your UAOnline account.  Information and instructions are available in the Registration Guide.  It is advisable to register for classes as soon as the registration period opens to increase your ability to register for the classes you want without being placed on a wait list due to over-enrollment.

If you are a J-1 Exchange or Study Abroad student you will receive information and instructions from the UAF Study Away Advisor in International Student and Scholar Services, who will also serve as your academic advisor during your studies at UAF.

Logging into UAOnline

In order to register for classes, you will need to log into the UAF website called UAOnline (this is the website you most likely used to apply for admission).

Here are the steps to login:

  1. Go to UAOnline.
  2. Click on the Login to Secured Area (students, staff, & faculty) link.
  3. Enter your User ID.
    • Your User ID will be your 8-digit Student ID or Employee ID.
    • If you forget your ID, you can look it up using ELMO.
    • For additional assistance students can contact the Office of Information Technology (OIT) through the link at the bottom of the page.
  4. Enter your PIN (Personal Identification Number).
    • NEW students can login to ELMO to retrieve their PIN (view the Certified Mail message).  This information is available for 30 days in ELMO.
      • Your PIN will also be mailed to the mailing address the University has on file for you. Note: If you have logged into UAOnline and changed your PIN before receiving the mailer, you don't need to change it again.
    • When you login to UAOnline for the first time, or after a reset, you will be prompted to change your PIN.
      • Your PIN must be six characters.  It is case-sensitive, alphanumeric, and can include spaces and punctuation.  You may not use your date of birth.
    • Memorize your PIN.
      For privacy and security, do not share your PIN with anyone.
  5. Click the Login button.
    • The first time you login to UAOnline, you will also be asked to create a security question and answer.  The security question will allow you to reset your PIN at a later date, if necessary.  You can also update, or review, your Security Question through the Personal Information section in UAOnline.
      • Be certain to complete the Security Question after logging into UAOnline the first time.
    • To protect your information, always log off and exit the browser when using UAOnline.
