There are a number of different types of courses and different registration types.
Students who audit courses are required to meet the course prerequisites/restrictions, register by the deadlines, and pay the same tuition as those who take the course for credit. No credit is received for audited courses. Audit registrations are on a space-available basis. Auditors may be dropped from a class to make room for credit-seeking students. Requirements for auditing the course are determined by faculty. Faculty may withdraw auditors if they fail to comply with the agreed-upon terms.
Audited courses are not included in the computation of study load for full-time or part-time status. In addition, students may not request local credit-by-examination for an audited course until the following academic year.
Students who want to audit a course can choose that grade mode option in the UAOnline Register/Add/Drop page when registering for a course or they may fill out the bottom section on the Add/Drop Form before the credit-to-audit deadline. Check Registration Dates and Deadlines for more information.
When a class is full, it is listed as "closed." Some courses offer a waitlist option. Students may add themselves to a waitlist through the first week of classes in UAOnline. Being on the waitlist does not guarantee a seat in the class. If a seat becomes available in the class the first student in line will receive an e-mail in their preferred e-mail account and will have a period of time to register for the available space. Students may also choose to receive waitlist notifications by text message. After 48, 24 or 12 hours (depending how close to semester start date it is) the next student will be notified.
Fall 2019 Waitlist Times:
|Date Range||Time to Add After Notification|
|3/29/19 - 7/21/19||48 hours|
|7/22/19 - 8/21/19||24 hours|
|8/22/19 - 9/2/19||12 hours|
Maximum Credits Enrolled
Students may register for a maximum of 19 credits during the fall and spring semesters, and a maximum of 15 credits during the summer session. Students who want to enroll for additional credits must submit a form to the Office of the Registrar. See more information about course load in the UAA Catalog.
Special Course Types
Partial Term Courses
Search UAOnline class schedule for partial term courses by clicking "Advanced Search", finding the "Part of Term" filter and selecting "UAA Main Campus Partial Term."
For classes that have irregular start or end dates, students may add the class up to five business days after the published class start date. After the semester add/drop deadline, dropping or withdrawing from classes with irregular dates cannot be done via UAOnline. Students may submit an Add/Drop Form at the University Center or use the online Student-Initiated Drop Form. Check Dates and Deadlines for specific semester add/drop deadlines.
Courses that have been graded are not eligible for withdrawal. Withdrawal from any class will produce a designation of W for that class on the student's transcript. This designation does not carry grade points and is not used in calculation of GPAs. Students are responsible for all fees and tuition if they choose to withdraw from any course, and financial aid could be affected.
