UAA Campus is Open
We are pleased to report the UAA Anchorage campus will open on Wednesday, Dec. 5, following last Friday's earthquake. The Chugiak-Eagle River Campus will remain closed, but classes will resume in alternative locations. Students should check UAOnline for their new meeting location. As you return to campus, we encourage you to check the web page uaa.alaska.edu/earthquakerecovery for important safety tips and resources about how to submit work requests to facilities for repairs. Please continue to check our Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates.
Applying For Admission
In addition to UAA's admission requirements, students requiring an F-1 visa must complete other steps including a transcript evaluation, English proficiency requirements, and provide required financial documentation in order to be issued an I-20 which completes the process to come to UAA. Another concern many students have is how much it will cost to attend. There are special considerations for those currently living in Sister Cities. Please consider the extra time involved in completing these steps when choosing the start semester on the admission application.Dates & Deadlinesoptional hidden text Frequently Asked Questions
