Before we get started, we want to introduce you to one of the most important tools available to UAF students: UAOnline.
UAOnline is your portal to the business of being a student at UAF. Through UAOnline, you can enroll in courses, make payments to your student account, manage your financial aid, view your degree progress, and more. You probably used UAOnline to apply for admission to UAF.
In order to log in to UAOnline, you’ll need your UA username and password. You should have received instructions on how to claim your UA username and set your password along with your acceptance to UAF. If you haven’t yet claimed your UA username and password, open up a new browser tab or window and go to https://elmo.alaska.edu/ to claim your credentials. You can also “sync” all your university accounts (UAOnline, UA Google Apps, Blackboard) through this site. If you need help, the Office of Information Technology has set up a walk-through to guide you.
If you know your UA username and password, go to UAOnline and log in. Take some time to familiarize yourself with the tabs and menus in UAOnline. One of the first items is to update your preferred email address under the “Personal Information” section.
