Mentoring

Graduate Faculty Advisors

  1. All Graduate Faculty Advisors (and UAA Faculty Committee Members) must request official designation as a Graduate Academic Advisor
  2. All faculty advisors must be FERPA Certified on an annual basis.
  3. To remain current, FERPA training must be completed within last year. The Registrar doesn't need to see the certificate; it can now be checked in Banner when completed.
  4. To be recognized as a graduate advisor,  the Office of the Registrar needs an email from dean or designee requesting access and reason for access. The request can be sent to UAA Degree Services.
