The University of Alaska Southeast welcomes anyone who is interested in taking classes for the semester. If you are a continuing student pursuing a degree program, we encourage you to register early in order to reserve seating in the classes you need to progress toward graduation. If you are a new student, it’s also very important that you speak with an advisor well before classes begin in order to get registered early. For non-degree seeking students wanting to take one or more classes for personal enjoyment, feel free to register before classes begin.
