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.

Announcements

6/12/2021

Thank you to everyone who joined us for today's Known World Sciences Symposium, and the fourth online session of the University of Atlantia. Our best estimate at this time is we had over over 600 people involved in some capacity as a student, instructor, TA and / or staff person. We sincerely appreciate the time and effort of all our instructors and staff. This would not have happened in any way, shape, or form without you. THANK YOU!

 

Participant Survey

Now, we're asking everyone who participated to take a few minutes and share your thoughts about what worked, what didn't, etc. in our follow-up survey here: 

https://forms.gle/gnJPYMMfoE5kAxdr6

 

Responses will be reviewed by the University of Atlantia Staff, but not shared with instructors unless we are directed by the respondent to do so. Thank you for your input and we look forward to reviewing and possibly implementing your suggestions in a future session.

 

Attendance Instructions

We want to make sure you get credit for the classes you attended. We take great pride in our attendance records. They help us calculate degrees, as well as give us ideas of popular and needed classes. Many of you have already taken care of marking yourselves attended for the classes you took and taught, and for this we thank you. If you have not yet taken the opportunity to do so, here are the instructions for students and instructors.

 

Students:

1. Log into our site,

2. Select the "Mark Online Classes Attended" link in the left-hand menu.

3. Click the button that says “I Attended this Class” for each class you attended at University.

4. You can also select the button for "I ended up not taking this class" to remove it from your list and keep yourself from receiving future emails about the class from the instructor.

 

NOTE: If one of your classes is not on this list, it's probably because your instructor already marked you as present. You can check the "My Transcript" link to see if this is the case. If you don’t see your class in either area, if you attended a class you did not pre-register for, or if you accidentally clicked the wrong button marking/removing your attendance, send an email to registrar@university.atlantia.sca.org with your name and the class missing from your transcript. 

 

Instructors:

1. Log into our site,

2. Select "Classes I'm Teaching" to see the list of the classes you were an instructor for.

3. Click on the title of the class you taught, and then click on the small red "Edit Class" link at the top of the page.

4. From here you can click the check box by your name and the name of any students you know attended the class who haven't marked themselves attended yet.

5. Finally, click the button "Mark Checked Teacher & Students Attended"

 

NOTE: If you have names that you can't resolve with the online roster, send them with the title of your class to registrar@university.atlantia.sca.org and we'll do our best to match them up.

 

For anyone who prefers a video walk through to written instructions on how to take your own attendance in the University of Atlantia system, we made this recording for you:
