Countdown to UAA
Congrats on being admitted. What's next?
1. Complete Course Placement
UAA believes it is important to start college on the right track, and course placement is important to your success! Course placement helps you and your Academic Advisor make informed decisions about which classes are best for your first semester. Not all certificate-seeking students are required to take course placement. Please reach out to your program Academic Advisor to see if your certificate applies.
2. Attend Orientation
At UAA we call orientation "Howl Days." Attending orientation is expected of all incoming students and gives you the opportunity to connect with UAA students, staff, and faculty while getting information about life at UAA. You will also learn about registering for classes.
You have the option of attending in-person Howl Days, live virtual Howl Days (via Zoom), or a self-guided virtual module that you can complete at your own pace!
3. Meet with an Advisor and Register for Classes
UAA offers a range of course delivery options for students. Your advisor will be the person you connect with to select courses and decide on the best course delivery method. Visit the Academic Advising website and select your area of interest to find out who your advisor is!
Now that you've taken care of those things, check out what UAA has to offer!
