University of Atlantia

Welcome!

The University of Atlantia is dedicated to the advancement of teaching in the Kingdom of Atlantia, SCA, Inc. Degrees presented by the University of Atlantia are not awards of the Society for Creative Anachronism or any of its branches and do not convey SCA precedence. We are therefore pleased to be able to offer degrees to qualifying students and faculty across the Knowne World.

There are two to three University sessions each year. If you are interested in hosting a University, please refer to our bid guidelines.

Salvete to the students and instructors of the 116th session of the University of Atlantia,

On behalf of the University staff, I want to thank you for your participation in our in-person and online University session. It is our sincere hope that your experience was pleasant and productive.

A day or two after the session, the University staff begins to get questions about when students and instructors will see their class credits in their transcripts in their University account (https://university.atlantia.sca.org/unionly/transcript.php).

IN-PERSON STUDENTS AND INSTRUCTORS: The Registrar has to enter the information about class attendance manually. This can take up to two weeks before you will see that credit. Please be patient.

ONLINE STUDENTS: Pre-registered students in online classes should have had the instructor and/or TA take attendance and mark the student as having been present for the class. Alternatively, students may mark themselves as having attended by going to “Mark Classes Attended” link (https://university.atlantia.sca.org/unionly/markattended.php) and following the links to the in-person or online session, then selecting the class, then using the “Mark Attendance” option in the top section of the page.

ONLINE INSTRUCTORS: Please make sure you mark yourself as having attended. The University database needs to be reminded that you were there in order to receive credit as an instructor.

It is necessary to ensure that all attendance is recorded before the next session is opened. This should be in about three weeks’ time.

Attendance at the June 8-9 Summer University will be counted toward requirements for a University degree. If the requirements for a degree (Fellows, Bachelors, Masters, Wrangler) are met at the Summer session, it will be awarded at the Fall session (September 20-21, 2024).

YIS,

Dame Deirdre O’Siodhachain/Chancellor

On behalf of the University of Atlantia, I offer thanks and praise to the Barony of Bright Hills for hosting the June 8 in-person 116th session. The barony and its people were incredibly supportive in the weeks leading up to the session, and were stalwarts in getting everything set up so we could come in and do our job for instructors and students. I offer particular praise for our event steward, Lady Mia Mousetower, and gratitude for the extra help from the seneschal Mistress Jeanne Tenneur de Bec and exchequer Lady Clara von Wonsiedel, all of whom gave me great information and feedback that will improve my performance at future sessions. The Bright Hills Cooks Guild prepared and served a very tasty lunch that was greatly appreciated in its variety and attention to dietary needs.

To those individuals who were ready and able to help at the registration desk goes thanks as well. Baron Gabe joined us as he often does, and with deepest apologies, there was a lady whose name escapes me who assisted at registration as well. If I have missed anyone, my sincere apologies there as well. It was a busy day and the activity was intense.

To the students and instructors, thank you for another day of excellence in learning. Your participation is the reason for University’s success and longevity. You are the ones who make all the work of organizing a session worthwhile. University is now 44 years old and going strong! I will note that this session had not only students from Atlantia, but a few from Aelthemearc, the East Kingdom, and Northshield.

And my personal thanks go to the University staff who helped in preparing for the event, and those who came to make sure a new Chancellor stayed on track – Deputy Chancellor Aelfric, Deputy Registrar Genvieve, Deputy Web Minister Melchior, TA Coordinator Thorve, and Deputy TA Coordinator Snorri. The staff of the University is an amazing team who not only perform their individual jobs, but pitch in wherever needed. I could not do it without you.

Dame Deirdre O’Siodhachain/Chancellor
