Students are held financially responsible for all courses for which they register. University policy requires a financial hold be placed on your account if you fail to meet your financial obligations. The hold will prevent any registration, transcript or graduation activity.

2013-14 Tuition by Course Level Tuition is determined by the following:
Students taking 4 or fewer credits are charged at the resident rate.
A person eligible for resident tuition is a person who, at the end of the add/drop period for semester-length courses, is a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen who has been physically present in Alaska for two years and who declares the intention to remain in Alaska indefinitely. The University of Alaska policy on resident and nonresident tuition may be referenced in the current University of Alaska Board of Regents' Policy and University Regulation, Chapter 05.10 Tuition and Student Fees, at www.alaska.edu/bor/policy-regulations.
The Application for Resident Tuition Assessment maybe found at www.uaa.alaska.edu/admissions/admission-forms.cfm The deadline for requesting residency and submitting all required documentation is prior to the last day of the add/drop period for semester-length classes of the first semester in which residency is sought.
Nonresident students who restrict their registration to 4 or fewer credits each semester will be charged resident tuition. Nonresident students taking 5 or more credits are assessed nonresident fees on all academic credits.
UAA welcomes senior citizens to its classrooms and waives tuition for those eligible under Board of Regents policy R05.10.080. To qualify, students must be age eligible to receive full Social Security retirement benefits. Individuals who were eligible for senior citizen tuition waivers on Sept. 21, 2005, under the previous policy, shall continue to be eligible for a waiver. The Student Government, Student Media and Student Activities fees are waived for senior citizens receiving a tuition waiver. Other course fees, such as an art class supply fee, are not waived.
Students should complete a Tuition Waiver Request, available at the University Center. Waiver forms should be completed and submitted, with proof of age eligibility, to the UAA Cashiering Office in the University Center.
Senior citizens using a tuition waiver can register on or after the first day of class, and on a space-available basis.
Senior citizens electing to pay full tuition and fees may register before instruction begins; however use of a senior citizen tuition waiver will not be accepted. Senior citizens electing to pay tuition and fees are subject to all payment deadlines. Refunds will not be available to senior citizens who drop courses and then re-register in the same course using a tuition waiver.
Mandatory student fees are charged to all students (including secondary school students) registering in 3 or more credits for courses held on the Anchorage campus, based on the total registration once the 3-credit on-campus criteria is met. The Aviation Complex, King Career Center and University Center are considered on-campus facilities for purposes of fee assessment. Student fees are not refundable unless the student totally withdraws during the 100 percent refund period.
Students may elect to pay certain student fees if they are registered in 1 to 5 credits, or 200 or more contact hours, in one semester. The Student Life Fee for students registered in fewer than 6 credits is set at a fixed rate. Contact the Issue Cage in the Wells Fargo Sports Complex for information about the Athletics/Sports Complex Fee; contact Student Activities in the Student Union regarding the Student Activity Fee. Student Health and Counseling Center services are not available to students registered in fewer than 6 academic credits.
Course fees vary and are shown on the UAOnline detailed class information pages. To view fees for a given class, go to the uaonline and view Class Schedule search and click on the CRN.
The following fees are applicable in specific circumstances and may not apply to everyone.
Refund processing is automatic for students who officially drop courses or withdraw from the university by the semester deadlines.
Students are responsible for reading the academic calendar and being aware of the published refund deadlines for their particular classes. The date of official drop or withdrawal activity determines eligibility for a refund. Students who drop or withdraw or who are administratively dropped or withdrawn from courses as a result of university disciplinary action forfeit all rights to any refund.
If there is a refund due to the student and the tuition was paid by credit card, the credit card account will be credited. If tuition was paid by cash or check, a refund check will be mailed to the student's address of record. Refunds will not be issued for amounts of less than $5.
