Dear UAA Students,

The Dean of Students Office would like to welcome you to the University of Alaska Anchorage. Congratulations on this milestone in your life. The Division of Student Development is delighted you have chosen UAA as your institution of higher education. We look forward to assisting you in your academic journey.

In order to make certain you have a successful journey during your tenure at UAA, we would like to equip you with the information needed to navigate the campus and successfully complete your program of study. The Fact Finder Student Handbook will provide you with the necessary information to accomplish your goals at UAA. It is designed with you in mind. This handbook will assist you in becoming acquainted with services that are available to support you in your educational growth and development in and beyond the classroom. The student handbook will serve as your resource guide to university services, and student life activities and programs. Therefore, I trust you will find it most useful.

Dr. Lee Purple

I encourage you to read this handbook and become familiar with it. I am sure that you will refer to it many times during the academic year. If you have questions about the handbook, please contact me or stop by the Dean of Students Office.   

I wish you every success at UAA, and I hope that this resource guide will serve you well in your endeavors.

Dewain L. Lee, Ph.D
