We hope to provide information you will need to:
- start a program or host a class in your district
- expand a program or class in your district
- get answers to questions that come up throughout the semester
Of course, you can always do things the old fashion way and contact the Program Coordinator at UAS in Juneau, Sitka, or Ketchikan to help you with your needs.
- We are here to help you.
- The process is easy and efficient.
- We can travel to your district to meet with you personally, respond immediately through email, and we are always available by phone.
Start a New Program
Sometimes revisions need to be made, however, we will do everything possible to make your program work. We would love to hear from you!
Contact the Program Coordinator closest to your location:
Write a General Agreement with UAS outlining the responsibilities of each party.
- You can see what these look like by checking out the District Agreement page.
Meet with your faculty to decide on the courses you wish to offer.
- Again, make contact with the Program Coordinator. A current UAS syllabus can be emailed for each course you wish to offer.
- Your instructor will create their own syllabus, using ours as a guide.
- Each course and instructor is approved individually.
Complete the UAS Instructor/Course Approval Application.
- Email this package to the Program Coordinator.
- This package will be delivered to the proper Department Head, Dean, or Campus Director as appropriate.
- If there are any questions the Program Coordinator will contact the instructor.
Once accepted an Articulation Agreement will be written that outlines specifics of the course.
- You can see a sample of these on the District Agreement page.
- These agreements are signed for every school year.
You are good to go! Congratulations on your new course.
What happens next?
- Contact a Program Coordinator. Consider: do you want to offer the class Fall Semester, Spring Semester, or Both?. UAS will create your class and send registration sheets to the instructor at your local school. These registration sheets will also be made available through our website for easy access.
- Distribute the registration forms to your students.
- Collect the registration forms and payment. Please check to see if all fields have been completed.
- Send the registration forms with the attached payment to a Program Coordinator to have your students registered for UAS credit. If the class will be paid for by scholarship or by the school district complete the Scholarship Information Form and send with your forms.
Creating Your Course
If you're thinking about offering a Dual Enrollment course, more than likely, the class you're currently teaching is a lot like a UAS course. Creating your course has to be the most daunting of all tasks at the district level. There's nothing to worry about. Promise. We're here to help you.
After reviewing our syllabus you can decide how the material can be taught within the time frame of your semester. There are a couple of items to keep in mind.
- All material included in the UAS syllabus must be taught with the same rigor in your classroom. You can add to, but you can not take away from, our syllabus. Don't take it personally, no faculty member can change the syllabus without going through the Course Approval Process.
- You have flexibility when determining pacing (UAS works on a 13 week semester), but your course needs to be based on clock hours, not class periods. Depending on the course you may have to account for lecture/lab clock hours.
As a UAS instructor, you are required to record a grade for each student within five days of the last session of class.
- You must assign letter grades based on UAS Grading Policy.
- Every student must have a grade.
- No Dual Enrollment student may be assigned a status of “Incomplete”, or “Withdrawn” for the course.
- If a student registered, but failed to complete the course due to family emergency, moving out of the district, etc. a designation of "NB" can be given. A date of last attendance must be recorded.
- Log into your UAOnline faculty account to enter your students’ grades.
