Register for classes

Just want to take a class?

If you just want to take a class without applying to a degree program at UAF or seeking financial aid, follow these steps. Courses you take can still count towards a degree later.  If you registered as a nondegree student at any UAF campus within the last two years, you may skip to step 2.

Step 1

Go to Just Take a Class/non-degree seeking and follow the prompts. Once your account is active, you will receive an email notification with directions on your next steps. If you are under 18 and have not yet graduated from high school you may be required to complete a Secondary Student Parent/Guardian Agreement (See Miscellaneous).

Step 2

With your UA username and password, you will be able to login to UAOnline to register for classes. Not familiar with UAOnline? Check out our easy directions on how to register for classes.

Step 3

Pay your tuition and fees before the deadline and start attending class. For additional information see our Registration Process or contact us at

New and continuing students

If you’re new to UAF and want to apply for admission, visit our admissions page for more information about coming to UAF.

Step 1

Meet with your academic advisor to discuss class options for the semester.

Step 2

Your advisor will open your registration during or after your appointment. After this is done you may register for classes.

Step 3

Pay your tuition and fees before the deadline and start attending class. For additional information see our Registration Process or contact us at

Registration holds

If you have a registration hold, you may not register until the hold is removed by the initiating office. Registration holds may result from:

  • Unpaid tuition and fees/outstanding balances on your student account (e.g., parking fines, course fees). See the Bursar's Office, or call 907-474-7384.
  • Registration hold for Parental Agreement form. See the Office of the Registrar, or call 907-474-6300.
  • Judicial/disciplinary holds. See Student Services, or call 907-474-7317.
  • Other registration holds. See the Office of the Registrar on the 1st floor of Signers' Hall, or call 907-474-6300.
  • UA system holds. Because UAF is part of a statewide system, a hold at one unit of the University of Alaska will affect your registration at all UA units.
