Communication via Email

UAF uses email to communicate with students about many important matters. Email is often the only way some information is distributed, so it’s important that you regularly check your university email address or forward email from your UAF address to an address you check frequently.

The university automatically assigns each student an official UAF email account when the student enrolls (except students whose primary registration is through Bristol Bay, Chukchi, Interior Alaska, Kuskokwim or Northwest campuses). If you have multiple UAF email accounts, you should forward them to the one you check most often. You’re responsible for knowing — and when appropriate, acting on — the contents of all university communications sent to your official UAF email account.

All notifications regarding waitlisted courses will be sent to your student-preferred email address. To receive these important notifications be sure your email is current and you have selected your preferred student email at UAOnline.

If you want to receive university communications at a different email address, you need to forward email from your assigned UAF account to an email address of your choice. You can easily do this online at
