Face masks required inside all UAA buildings

Please remember to wear a face mask while inside any UAA building. Regardless of your vaccination status, all individuals must wear a mask while inside university buildings. When you are outdoors and on university property, masks are only required when it is not possible to maintain six feet of distance from other people or when mandated by an event- or location-specific mitigation plan.

The key to Seawolf success? Knowing when to ask for help.

I’m emailing because I want to be sure that you know that UAA has so many ways to help you succeed in your classes. After all, that’s the reason you are here and I’m happy to share with you three ideas that I think can help you during the semester.
