The Division of Undergraduate Academic Affairs (UAA) serves students across all colleges and programs, including transfer students, new freshmen, and continuing students. Our programs honor the potential of all students by offering intellectual challenges, exceptional opportunities in and beyond the classroom, and valuable academic support and assistance. Ultimately, the goal of UAA is student success; that students graduate and are well prepared for careers, further education, and their responsibilities as contributing members of society.

UAA is involved in developing and revising curricula, programs, and academic policy and in fostering external relations to deliver a distinctive experience for all undergraduates.
