Register for Fall 2013 classes:
Set up an appointment with your advisor. Plan on 30-45 minutes so that you have time to discuss your program progress and future plans.
Confirm your fall housing plans:
If you are continuing in UAF housing, be sure to renew your housing agreement and make your room selection. Any questions, call 474-7247.
Renew your FAFSA:
Now that you have completed your 2012 income taxes, you can renew your Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This is required for Pell Grant offers, student loan options and determining your student budget for your scholarship agencies.
Notify your funding agencies of your intent to continue:
If you have scholarships or grants that are continued into the next year, you should contact each agency or organization to ask what documentation they require for your continued status.
Send your final grades:
Most scholarship and grant agencies require a copy of your final grades at the end of each semester. If they only need an unofficial transcript or grade report, you can print that off of your uaonline.alaska.edu student records account. If they require an official transcript then you will need to request that from UAOnline and pay a fee.
