Academic Advising

Each University of Alaska Southeast campus provides academic advising for new, returning and transfer students. Academic advisors are available to help students plan their program of study, and make informed choices about courses. Although students are fully responsible for their academic decisions, they should recognize the advantages of close cooperation and understanding between themselves and their advisors. Advisors assist students in selecting semester courses, planning their academic program and explaining University requirements and policies.

Academic advisors are assigned at the time of admission. Students will be assigned to the Student Resource Center (for their first semester or more), to department advisors in a particular school, or to a faculty advisor depending upon the student’s program of study. All first year (less than 30 transfer credits), degree-seeking students are required to work with an academic advisor for their first academic year.

Bachelor degree-seeking students who are unsure what degree they would like to pursue should choose the Undeclared option on the application for admission. The advisors in the Student Resource Center are trained to assist in transitioning undeclared students to a degree program within their first 60 credits at UAS.
