This morning, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.
Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.
Prerequisites for the OSH Program
UAA is an open enrollment university, however, there are math and English prerequisites for the entry level course in the program, OSH A101 - Introduction to Occupational Safety and Health. Students need to have taken MATH A105 - Intermediate Algebra and passed the course with a "C" or better, or be eligible to take the MATH A105 concurrently with OSH A101. If a student places into a math course at a higher level than MATH A105, the prerequisite is met.
A student must also be eligible to enroll in ENGL A111 - Introduction to Composition. Both the math and English prerequisites can be established by taking the Accuplacer test through the UAA Testing Center.
