R.O.A.R. Registration Appointments


R.O.A.R. registration appointments are scheduled through an email sent to your personal email account after you have completed your UAFS New Student Form in your UAFS application status portal. If you have not received an email, please call the R.O.A.R. First-Year Advising Center at 479-788-7400.

R.O.A.R. registration appointments are for entering freshmen. These appointments take place in the summer before your first semester of classes. During this appointment you will meet one-on-one with your advisor, declare your major, and register for your first semester of classes.

Preparing for your R.O.A.R. registration appointment is more important than ever. To have an effective appointment with your advisor, you must prepare for your appointment and meet with your advisor on your scheduled day and time. Please take extra care in following these steps so we provide you with the best possible experience!

  1. All communication from your advisor will go to your UAFS email. Ensure that you can log in to My.UAFS and access your UAFS email before your appointment. For assistance email the UAFS Service Desk at, call 479-788-7460, or visit their website.
  2. Watch for an email in your UAFS email account from your advisor containing instructions for your appointment and the forms needed for registration. Complete all forms and return them before your appointment via your UAFS email. 
  3. We take both in-person and online appointments.
    In-person appointments will take place in our office on the second floor of the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center.
    Virtual appointments are conducted via Zoom. A Zoom link and password will also be provided in the email from your advisor containing instructions for your appointment. Be sure to sign in at your scheduled meeting time. Call 479-788-7400 if you have any problem logging in to your Zoom meeting.
  4. Also please make sure you consider the following:
    Provide an official transcript for concurrent coursework. These transcripts must come directly from the university where the credit was  awarded. This coursework will not be on your high school transcript.
    Provide your Immunization records if you have not already done so. These must be received before registration. Students not submitting their immunization records will not be able to register for classes. Please contact our Registrar's Office at with questions.
    Provide an official score report for AP or CLEP credit that you may have received.
