mm MAYmester 2020 Dates: May 4-15

Due to the COVID-19 challenge, all MAYmester courses will be taught with a blended format of a virtual face-to-face class, via Zoom, plus an online component via Blackboard. Additionally, MAYmester will be lengthened by one week, to allow extra time for assignments to be completed. All Zoom course meetings will take place during the traditional MAYmester timeframe, May 4-15, and the online coursework will run from May 4-22.

Are MAYmester credits counted in my total summer credit load?

What if MAYmester causes a credit overload in my summer schedule?
Banner will not accept a registration that creates a credit overload without prior authorization. It is understood that a MAYmester course is offered in a separate time frame from other summer courses, but Banner doesn't see it that way. To get overload permission entered into Banner to take a MAYmester course, students can email with their student ID and the requested MAYmester course name and CRN. It is helpful to put "MAYmester Credit Overload" in the subject line. Call 907-474-7500 for additional information.

How do I get prepared for the first class?

How do I drop a class?
You can use UAOnline to drop a class if  you are within the no-penalty period. You can also use the Add/Drop form on the Office of the Registrar's site.

More information about dates, deadlines, and fees can be foud on the Dates and Finances page. 

It is extremely important to drop or withdraw from courses that you do not plan to attend. Doing this can save you money, prevent a failing grade on your transcript, and eliminate the posibility of holds on your account.
