Social Security and Student Identification Numbers
The University of Alaska has established student identification numbers and does not use Social Security numbers for student identification. The university is still required to collect a valid Social Security number from each student for IRS, employment and federal financial aid purposes. The last four digits of the Social Security number are included on official transcripts for identification matching purposes.
Official Communication by Email
All communication related to registration and enrollment activities will occur either through the preferred email address that students submitted via UAOnline or through the official UAA-assigned email (@Alaska.edu). Students should be careful to keep this account clear and review the correspondence received there regularly.
