Priority Registration: Current Students

Only UAS degree-seeking students may register for classes during the priority registration period. Space in classes cannot be held for non-degree seeking, UAF, or UAA students during priority registration.

Open Registration: All Students

All students are welcome to register during open registration. This includes non-degree seeking, UAF, and UAA students.

Registering for Classes After the First Day of Instruction

If the class has already started students will need the instructor's approval.  Once the approval is obtained, the instructor can either enter an override in UAOnline so the student can register online or sign a Course Registration or Course Add/Drop/Change form.

Schedule Planner

The Schedule Planner tool can help you create your perfect schedule and is available to all students.

Common Registration Errors

  • Closed section: Registration is closed because the class is full. If the class has waitlist seats available, it is possible to get on the waitlist. See the waitlist instructions.
  • Corequisite required: Register for both corequisite classes at the same time. Go to the Add/Drop/Withdraw classes page, enter the CRNs for both of the required courses and hit "Complete Registration Changes."
  • Department approval: Registration is limited to students who have departmental approval. Contact the department to request an override.
  • Duplicate CRN: Already registered for another section of the course. In most cases, simultaneous registration in two or more sections of the same course is not allowed.
  • Instructor approval: Registration is restricted to students who have instructor approval. Contact the instructor to request an override.
  • Level restriction: Registration is restricted to students in a particular level (for example, graduate or Junior or Senior sanding). Click on the CRN to see level restriction information.
  • Maximum hours exceeded: Registration in the class will exceed the maximum number of credits allowed for the semester. To enroll in extra credits, you will need to fill out a course add/drop form, have advisor approval and submit to the Registrar's office for approval.
  • Prerequisite not met: Registration is limited to students who have met prerequisite and/or test score restrictions. Check the CRN to see prerequisite and test score informaiton. Contact the instructor with questions.
  • Registration changes not allowed: The registration period for the class has not yet opened or has passed.
  • Registration hold: Registration holds block registration until the hold is removed by the initiating office. Registration holds may result from:
    • Unpaid tuition and fees and/or outstanding balances on the student account. Contact the Bursar's Office at 907-796--6267.
    • Academic Advising hold, reach out to your advisor and you can view your adviser in your Degree Workds audit or at Find Your Advisor.
