Native Student Services


In response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and social distancing recommendations, Native Student Services is open with limited capacity. Students can also schedule appointments on Zoom, by phone, or in person during our regular office hours from 9am-5pm.

Native Student Services provides a safe, affirming space on campus. It is a gathering place where students can find support, access resources, connect with community representatives, study with classmates, meet new friends, and interact with people who share similar experiences as Indigenous peoples.

Native Early Transition (NET) Program


NET (Native Early Transition) Program is designed to support Native students and students from rural Alaska as they transition to being a college student and to the UAA campus. In the week prior to the start of the Fall semester, we provide a week-long orientation and opportunity to build community for students based on Alaska Native values. The program will continue into the first year where students will earn college credits while participating in culturally-based academic activities and curriculum.  NET is open to all UAA and UAA community campus students.

 Let us know you are interested by completing the application and we'll be in contact to talk to you more about it!

Apply for the NET program  (Both Spring 2022 and Fall 2022)
