2000-2001 UAF Catalog


Applying for Admission

How to Apply

You may request an application from the Office of Admissions, or complete the online Undergraduate Application form. The Office of Admissions must receive the following before your application will be considered:

1. Application for Admission

The Office of Admissions must receive your completed application, along with a $35 non-refundable application fee, prior to published application deadlines.

2. Transcripts

High school transcripts: All bachelor's degree applicants with fewer than 30 semester credit hours must submit high school transcripts. Applicants to certificate and associate degree programs don't need to send high school transcripts, regardless of the number of credit hours earned.

College transcripts: All bachelor's degree applicants who have attended a postsecondary institution must arrange for their official college or university transcripts to be sent to UAF. Applicants to certificate or associate degree programs don't need to submit college transcripts. You must arrange for each college or university you've attended to send an official transcript to UAF. Transcripts cannot be accepted if you submit them yourself.

3. Test Results

Bachelor's degree applicants: Freshman and transfer applicants with fewer than 30 semester credit hours must submit the results of either the ACT or the SAT examinations. These test scores are used to determine your placement in English, mathematics and other freshman-level courses.

Certificate and associate degree applicants: Applicants to certificate and associate degree programs don't have to submit standardized test scores, with one exception: students with less than 30 semester credit hours who apply to a certificate or associate degree program requiring English or mathematics course work must submit the results of the SAT, ACT, ASSET or COMPASS test.

Contact the UAF Testing Office at (907) 474-5277 or your high school for information concerning the ACT, SAT, ASSET or COMPASS tests.

When to Apply

Freshmen and transfer applications for admission are due no later than the dates listed below.

Fall Semester Spring Semester

Alaskan Freshmen August 1 December 1

Non-resident Freshmen April 1 December 1

All Transfer Students August 1 December 1

High school seniors should apply for admission during the first semester of their senior year, and transfer students should apply six to nine months before the beginning of the semester in which they plan to enroll.

Non-Resident Freshmen Enrollment Deposit

Once admitted, non-resident freshmen must submit a non-refundable $100 enrollment deposit by June 1 to secure a place in the entering fall semester class. The deposit will be credited toward the student's bill for the fall semester.

Conditional and Final Acceptance

If you're a qualified applicant, a letter of acceptance will be mailed to you once the above items are received and evaluated. Your letter of acceptance will spell out any conditions under which you are being admitted. If you're a qualified applicant in your last year of high school, or attending another college, your acceptance will be conditional until official transcripts are received that show you have satisfactorily completed the work in progress and, if you're a high school senior, that you have graduated. Your acceptance to UAF is final only when all your credentials have been accepted by the Office of Admissions.


Your offer of admission is valid for the semester for which you applied. If you are unable to attend in that semester, you will need to contact the Office of Admissions to request a later term. You may postpone your enrollment for a maximum of one calendar year.

Immunization Policy

If you're a new student enrolled for nine or more credits and/or live in university housing, you must submit the following:

  1. A completed health inventory form to be submitted to the Center for Health and Counseling;
  2. Negative tuberculin skin test or chest X-ray results;
  3. Written proof from a medical authority of immunity to:
    1. Rubeola (measles)
    2. Rubella
    3. Diphtheria and Tetanus

Your registration may be withheld for your second semester until these items are submitted.
