We want you to succeed as a Seawolf!

Student receiving assistance from an academic advisor


How it Works

  • How do I know who my advisor is?

    UAA’s First Year Experience office will contact you after you are admitted to UAA about your next steps and how to contact an academic advisor. If you have not received this email or do not know who your advisor is, find the advising team associated with your program of interest.

  • How will advisors help you?

    It is important to start college on the right path, but it can be overwhelming! Your UAA academic advisor wants you to feel welcome, connected, and prepared.

    • Welcome: Your academic advisor will personally welcome you to UAA and help you navigate the new student checklist items.
    • Connected: Your academic advisor will introduce you to student support resources, campus events, and mentors.  
    • Prepared: Your academic advisor will help you start college on the right track by building a strong foundation by customizing your academic pathway to your background and goals.
