The official UNA method of communication is the UNAPortal, with emphasis placed on university email. However, many classes use Canvas.

  • Determine how your instructors plan to communicate.
  • Check your email and Canvas courses daily for updates and announcements from UNA and your instructors.
  • Ensure you are getting instructor notifications and announcements by checking your notification preferences in Canvas
  • Keep track of your assignments, exams, and grades.
  • If you are having difficulty completing work, contact your instructor. Your instructor may be able to support you but needs to know about the challenges you are facing as soon as possible.
  • If you do not have the required technology and access, be proactive in communicating this to your instructor and in finding solutions (see Internet and Device Access).
