Welcome to UA Little Rock! Before registering for classes, freshmen will meet with their advisor in one of three college advising centers. Academic programs at UA Little Rock are grouped within three colleges. Your advisor will contact you about making an advising appointment, so check your UA Little Rock email and/or phone for a message. If you are undecided about your major, you will be advised in the College of Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences, and Education.
College Advising Centers
An advisor will contact you to schedule an advising appointment, but you can also contact your college’s advising center.
If you do not hear from your advisor, please contact the Ask Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 501-916-3000 for assistance

Registering for Classes
Your advisor will help you register for classes, but you can get a head start by previewing the online process.
The best way to register is to use Schedule Planner since it shows you a variety of possible schedules that are built around your job, study time, or other activities. Watch: Schedule Planner Walk-Through
If you only plan to take a few classes, you can also register using BOSS, but we recommend using it only as a backup. Watch: Register for Courses in BOSS
