Native Early Transition (NET) Program

Chin'an gu nin yu! Aang! Paġlagivsigin! Waqaa! Cama-i! Yak'ei haat yigoode'e!

NET (Native Early Transition) Program is a perfect fit for rural and Alaska Native students interested in attending our UAA campus. We provide a week long period where we focus on building community for our rural students based on Alaska Native values and previous students’ experiences at UAA. The program will continue into the first year and students will earn college credits while participating in culturally based academic activities and curriculum.
