UAF requires all undergraduate students to meet with their academic advisor before registering for classes. An academic advisor is a member of the faculty with training and experience to help you select, plan, and complete your academic/career goals. Your academic advisor is usually someone in your major. It is your responsibility to initiate contact with your academic advisor!
