Cost of Attendance
"Cost of Attendance" is the estimated cost of completing a full year as a full-time student (24+ credits for undergrad, 18+ credits for grad). The Cost of Attendance is also referred to as a "Budget" for financial aid purposes. Your Cost of Attendance is not necessarily what you will pay to go to college, it is an estimate of how much you can expect to need from financial aid to help pay for college and living expenses, throughout the nine (9) month academic year.
There are many paths to in-state tuition. Direct descendants of current Alaska residents, recent Alaska High School graduates and military affiliated students, among others, can qualify for resident tuition.
