The Short List
- Declare a major.
- Consider possible minors with the course credit you currently have or classes you are interested in taking.
- Join a club related to your major.
- Consider study abroad or national exchange; began planning potential places and how it could impact your graduation goal of finishing in four. Meet with the exchange office - it takes almost a year to plan and apply.
Things To Keep Doing
- Meet with your academic advisor to monitor your progress toward graduation. Be sure you are aware of the courses you still need to take and when they are offered.
- Layout a one- or two-year course plan since some courses are only offered in the fall or spring semester.
- Complete at least 15 credits each semester or 30 credits per year.
- Check out Careers at UA for on-campus part-time student jobs (http://careers.alaska.edu/)
- Join or create a study group, if that's helpful to you.
- Look at your last year and try to work on any academic weaknesses. Staying organized may be difficult, but it is so helpful.
- Attend class and expect to study 25-40 hours per week.
- Use the writing lab, math lab and other academic services available.
- Bookmark www.sled.alaska.edu for free, live tutoring and homework help.
- Prepare for meeting with your academic advisor by looking at DegreeWorks at UAOnline.
- Meet with your academic advisor prior to the November and April registration periods.
- By February 15th apply for scholarships at UAOnline.
- Congratulate yourself on all that you've accomplished if you are seeking your associate degree!
