Regular attendance and active participation are expected in all classes. Students are responsible for class work even if there are legitimate reasons for their absence. Unexcused absences may result in a student being withdrawn from theclass or receiving a failing grade.
Students are responsible for reviewing any registration restrictions or prerequisites of the courses they wish to take by clicking on the course CRNs in the UAOnline class schedule or by visiting the UAA Catalog at www.uaa.alaska.edu/records/catalogs/catalogs.cfm. Students who do not meet class requirements may be administratively dropped from the class. Any fees resulting from this will be the responsibility of the student.
All communication related to registration and enrollment activities will occur through the official UAA-assigned email. Students should be careful to keep this account clear and review the correspondence received there regularly. Students are responsible for knowing and, when appropriate, acting on the contents of all university communications sent to their official UAA e-mail accounts.
All notifications regarding waitlisted courses will be sent to your preferred email address. Review and/or update your preferred e-mail in the Personal Information Menu in UAOnline.
To receive university communication at a different e-mail address, students may forward e-mail from their assigned UAA accounts toany valid third-party e-mail address of their choice that accepts forwarded e-mail. More information may be found at www.uaa.alaska.edu/informationtechnologyservices/email.cfm.
Pay tuition and fees before published deadlines to avoid being assessed late fees. Students are responsible academically and financially for their registration activity.
It is the responsibility of the student to become familiar with UAA dates and deadlines. Refer to the [dates and deadline page]. Students are expected to register only for course sections which they plan to attend and to complete all courses for which they register.
If you determine that you are unable to complete a course, you must officially drop or withdraw by the published deadlines. Failure to do so may result in a grade of F or NB for nonattendance and may affect your financial aid and gradepoint average (GPA). Students cannot withdraw from a class after it has ended.
As with all members of the university community, the university requires students to conduct themselves honestly and responsibly andto respect the rights of others. Conduct that unreasonably interferes with the learning environment or that violates the rights of others is prohibited by the standards and guidelines collectively described as the Student Code of Conduct (the Code). Students and student organizations will be responsible for ensuring that they and their guests comply with the Code while on property owned or controlled by the university or at activities authorized by the university.

Students may update the following information by submitting a Change Form, which is available at Registrar's Forms page.

You may enable or remove directory holds on your account through UAOnline under the Student Services and Account Information tab, or you may submit a directory information/confidentiality form, available at www.uaa.alaska.edu/records/registrarforms.cfm.
Blackboard is the university's course management system that allows for dynamic learningto occur in the online environment. The tools provided by the Blackboard software allow students and faculty to post and share documents and other course content, write via email and posted discussion boards, and even have synchronous, or "real-time" conversations in a virtual classroom.
All UAA distance classes, and many non-distance classes, use Blackboard. Your Blackboard courses can be accessed on the Internet from your computer at any time.

The UAA WOLFcard serves students as their official ID, as a U-Pass to provide free transportation on municipal buses, and as a debit card for on-campus food and services. Visit the WOLFcard website atwww.uaa.alaska.edu/wolfcard for complete information. The WOLFcard may also be used at a select number of off-campus restaurants.
To receive your initial Wolfcard student ID, you must first register for classes. Beginning the week before classes start, you may bring your photo ID to the Wolfcard Office in the University Center to get your card. Existing Wolfcards are automatically updated, so there is no need to visit the Wolfcard Office in later semesters.
