Information and Resources for Students

Using Educational Technology

 

UAOnline

UAOnline is the portal to each student’s account with the University.  Students use UAOnline to apply for admission, register for classes, manage their financial aid and tuition payments, and check their grades at the end of the semester.    

Student Email

Students are assigned a University email account at the time of registration and all future communication with the student will be sent to that account.  Students are able to forward their University email to a personal account, if they wish.

Blackboard

Blackboard is an online course management system. Professors use this space to post course syllabi, grades, faculty evaluations and other course documents and information. Log in to Blackboard and check this account on a regular basis during the semester. Instructions on how to use Blackboard features are available.

Trouble Shooting

Students who are having difficulty accessing their student accounts in UAOnline, Blackboard, or student email should go to the Me Site to manage their identity, activate their account/reset their password, or find their UA username and student ID number.  If further assistance is needed, call the UAA IT Call Center at 1-877-633-3888 for assistance.
