Native Early Transition (NET) Program
Native Student Services offers the Native Early Transitions (NET) program beginning the week before the traditional start of each fall semester. First-time freshmen from small rural villages attend a four-day program aimed at easing rural student transitions and supporting their academic and social success as UAA. Activities are offered to familiarize incoming students from rural Alaska to life in a larger urban setting. In addition to being exposed to the services offered at UAA, students receive an orientation to using services in Anchorage—from opening a bank account to riding the People Mover bus system. The NET program supports student from rural Alaska to more successfully transition to Anchorage and UAA.
This is an exciting program which involves both rural and Native high school seniors who will be attending fall UAA classes. This program is an excellent way to ensure their transition from rural villages to the UAA campus and the city of Anchorage be made easy as possible.
