Advising Steps

The Chugiak-Eagle River Campus is committed to helping students successfully navigate the university’s academic environment. All students must meet with an academic advisor prior to beginning any program of study.

The advisor can assist you with declaring or changing majors and minors, explaining general requirements for graduation, assisting with course selection and planning, transcript review for transfer/military students, filing academic and financial aid appeals, petitions, reinstatements, and general guidance on UAA policies.

Students are encouraged to meet each semester for the purpose of reviewing their academic progress and planning future courses. The academic advisor will be able to assist students in the appropriate course sequence. It is particularly important for students to meet with their advisor whenever academic difficulties arise.
