The following are the deadlines for curricular, course fee, assessment, and textbook submissions. Please keep in mind that appropriate approvals on the department and college level must be obtained before submission to the listed offices. The curriculum deadlines do not guarantee inclusion in the AY21 UAA schedule and/or catalog, as this will depend on the workload of the different review bodies.

There are a number of different ways to be registered for a class and important things to know about changing registration.
The university reserves the right to change or cancel classes; to change the fees, rules and calendar for admissions, registration, instruction and graduation; and to change other regulations affecting the student body at any time.
