The University of Alaska Southeast welcomes anyone who is interested in taking classes for the semester. If you are a continuing student pursuing a degree program, we encourage you to register early in order to reserve seating in the classes you need to progress toward graduation. If you are a new student, it’s also very important that you speak with an advisor well before classes begin in order to get registered early. For non-degree seeking students wanting to take one or more classes for personal enjoyment, feel free to register before classes begin.

The responsibility for meeting all graduation requirements rests with the student. Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in the academic catalog. However, the University of Alaska Southeast catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the convenience of students. The University reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules and calendar for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change other regulations affecting the student body at any time.
