Welcome letter from UAF's Chancellor
Your consideration of UAF shows sound judgment and a keen understanding of everything Alaska's flagship university has to offer. UAF caters to students who are looking for intellectual challenge and are committed to achieving high educational goals.
UAF is one of the top research universities in the country. We are the world's premier university for discovery and learning related to high-latitude biological, physical, environmental and human sciences. We house dynamic programs in the liberal arts, fine arts, and social sciences. We are America's arctic research university and Alaska's first university.
Quality programs, small class size and undergraduate research opportunities are why UAF appeals to students from all over Alaska, the Lower 48 and around the world. This diversity will enhance your experience as a student at UAF by providing the opportunity to engage in a wide range of interactions, inside and outside of the classroom—opportunities found at no other institution in America.
We're looking for exceptional students like you to join us in the Golden Heart of the Interior, where discovery and learning meet the Spirit of the Last Frontier!
