Who is my advisor?

Please visit our Find Your Advisor tool to help you determine your academic advisor.

Welcome to Academic Advising!

UAS academic advisors empower students to meet academic, life, and career goals through a personalized, collaborative, and reflective process.  The advising partnership connects students to faculty, campus, and community resources, online and face-to-face.

Advisors can assist with a wide range of needs, including but not limited to:

  • Identifying academic and career goals
  • Exploring and choosing degree programs
  • Helping with course selection, building a schedule, and registration
  • Connecting to useful resources
  • Navigating university systems

Plan to meet with your advisor every semester.

All new students (freshman and transfer) are required to meet with an advisor each semester until they reach 30 college credits. Mandatory Advising is a key program at UAS to assist students in creating the good habit of connecting with their advisor early and often.

When you receive your admissions certificate, you will receive contact information to reach an advisor. You are also welcome to call our toll free number (877-465-4827) and our Peer Advisors can assist you.

While you may see an advisor at any stage in your path to enroll at UAS, new and transfer students are encouraged to prepare for their first meeting with an advisor by:

*Transfer students gain a tremendous amount of information from meeting with advisors early to understand how their credits may apply at UAS.

The admissions and advising teams work together to welcome all interested international students to UAS and assist them with the process of getting admitted and enrolled in classes.

Dash Hillgartner is the International Student Advisor. Incoming international students should follow the admissions process. Returning international students should prepare for meetings with Dash by:

  • Reviewing the upcoming semester course schedule
  • Preparing a list of questions, concerns, interest and goals

International students are required to meet with their advisor each semester in order to maintain immigration status.

UAS welcomes students under the age of 18 who are ready for college-level work to enroll in many of our classes. There are three different options to choose from. Please review carefully.

Tech Prep

Tech Prep students are enrolled in a UAS course taught under an articulated agreement between the school district and UAS. Tech Prep students should register for Tech Prep classes at their high schools.

Visit the Tech Prep website for more information.

Dual Enrollment

A dual enrollment student is one who is simultaneously enrolled in a high school curriculum and also is taking courses at UAS.  The courses that the student takes at UAS may be used to fulfill high school graduation requirements. The purpose of dual enrollment is to provide high school students with access to coursework that is not available in Alaska high schools.  Examples include academic courses that are more advanced than those offered in high schools and various vocational and technical programs that high schools are not equipped to teach. See enrollment procedures below.

Other Underage Students

Students who have withdrawn from high school prior to graduation and have not completed a GED but wish to take classes at UAS qualify as non-degree seeking students and can enroll in classes at UAS. See enrollment procedures below.

Enrollment Policies for Dual Enrollment and Other Underage Students

  • Underage students must have a cumulative high school grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 to be eligible for enrollment at UAS. Exceptions to the 2.0 GPA requirements may be approved by the instructor.
  • Underage students must meet the same course pre-requisites that are required of other students.
  • Underage students are required to abide by the Student Code of Conduct at all times.

Enrollment Procedures for Dual Enrollment and Other Underage Students

  1. Meet with an advisor from the Student Resource Center in Juneau, the Student Services Manager in Ketchikan, or Student Services Advisor in Sitka to discuss the goals, risks, and rewards of enrollment in college courses.
  2. Submit high school transcripts that reflect a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.
  3. Take Accuplacer assessment for initial English course placement, and take ALEKS assessment for initial math course placement. Scores from SAT or ACT tests taken within the past year may be substituted for English only.
  4. Complete the Secondary Student and Parent/Guardian Agreement form (460KB), which requires signatures of the student and parent.
  5. Complete an Education Record Information Release form (FERPA) in order for UAS officials to be able to speak to parents and counselors about the student’s academic progress, registration status, student account, and student affairs record.
  6. Submit required forms to registrar’s office and pay tuition and fees or provide proof of other funding source. Note: Students (and their parents) are responsible for the cost of tuition, fees, books, and other required materials.
