What is UAOnline?
UAOnline is the secure website for the University of Alaska. UAOnline is your link to your academic records, registration activity and other student account information.
All current and former students of the University of Alaska system have a UAOnline account. Regardless of your current registration status, if you are a former student who attended the University of Alaska after the summer of 1982, you may be able to access your UAOnline account.
How do I log in to UAOnline?
Students can log in to UAOnline by going to the UAOnline homepage at https://uaonline.alaska.edu and choosing the "Log In" link in the menu.
Enter your UA username and password to log in. Your username and password are the same credentials that you use to log in to Blackboard or UAA email. New users of university online resources can claim their credentials at me.uaa.alaska.edu. Current students who already use university online resources do not need to reactivate their account.
What's my UA username or password?
If you can't remember or don't know your UA username or password, click on the "Forgot UA username or password?" link on the login page. This will take you to me.uaa.alaska.edu. Click on "Option 3: Find my UA Username and ID." Enter the requested information and click the "Go Elmo" button.
Yes! UAOnline is the link to your academic records, registration activity and other student account information. Blackboard is a course-specific online learning system. For information on Blackboard and to log in, go to www.uaa.alaska.edu/classes.
Check UAOnline to verify that you are officially registered for the course. If you are registered, you can work with your instructor to add you to Blackboard or contact IT Services at 907-786-4646.
How do I change my name in UAOnline?
Submit a Change Form to Enrollment Services at the University Center One Stop. Change Forms can be downloaded at www.uaa.alaska.edu/records/registrarforms.cfm. Be sure to bring photo identification, such as a driver's license, passport or permanent resident card.
How do I change my name in Blackboard?
Contact the instructor or IT Services at 907-786-4646 to make a name change. Change Forms do not apply to Blackboard.
How do I register for classes as a high school student?
See the instructions for Secondary Students on the Registration Process page.
When a class reaches its maximum enrollment, it is listed as "closed." Many courses offer a waitlist option to allow you to wait for a seat in the class if someone drops. Please be aware that not all courses offer waitlisting.
How do I get on a waitlist?
If you want to be added to the waitlist for a closed class:
Can I waitlist for a course using the Class Schedule Search in UAOnline?
No, you cannot waitlist for a course from the Class Schedule Search page. To waitlist for a course, go to the Register/Add/Drop page on the Student Services tab in UAOnline and enter the CRN in the Add Classes Worksheet section. Then, select 'Waitlist' from the drop down menu next to the course.
If a seat becomes available in the class and your name is at the top of the waitlist, you will receive an e-mail in your preferred e-mail account. (You can check or change your preferred e-mail in the Personal Information tab in UAOnline.) You will have 48 hours after the e-mail is sent to register for the class.
What if I miss the e-mail or cannot register within the time allowed?
If you do not register for the class within 48 hours, the system removes you from the waitlist and the next student is given the opportunity to register. You may add yourself back onto the waitlist, and you will be notified again by email if a space becomes available.
You will not be able to waitlist for a class if:
No, you will not charged for a waitlisted course until you are actually enrolled in it. You may complete registration and pay tuition and fees for other classes in which you are enrolled.
When you originally register for the course, a small number pops up. This indicates your current position on the waitlist. Keep checking your preferred email for notification of your opportunity to register.
Attend the first day of class for any class(es) for which you are waitlisted. Let the instructor know you are on the waitlist but not enrolled in the class.
If you are on the waitlist for an e-learning/distance education class, email the instructor to find out what you should do. Please contact the department for additional information or assistance.
Generally, you can add yourself to a waitlist until the class begins. After the class begins, you will need the instructor's permission to enroll. Being on the waitlist does not guarantee you a seat in the class.
You are not charged tuition and fees for waitlisted classes. Charges apply only after you are enrolled in the class.
Waitlisted classes are not included in the total number of credits used to calculate your financial aid.
If financial aid has already been applied to your account and you subsequently register for a class from the waitlist, tuition and fees are due by the payment deadline. You must pay tuition and fees before the payment deadline to avoid late charges.
