Certificate or Associate Degree Programs
Freshman and transfer applications for admission to certificate or associate degree programs are due no later than Aug. 1 for the fall semester, or Dec. 1 for the spring semester.
High school seniors should apply for admission during the first semester of their senior year and provide a list of course work in progress. Transfer students should apply at least three to four months prior to the beginning of the semester in which they plan to enroll.
To apply to a certificate or associate degree program, request an application from the Office of Admissions or apply online via the UAF website at www.uaf.edu/admissions/. Before your application is complete, the Office of Admissions must receive:

If you are under the age of 18 and do not have a high school diploma or GED, you are not admissible but may take courses as a non-degree student. Upon turning 18, you may reapply for admission to an associate or certificate level program.
If you have attended other accredited institutions, you are eligible for admission if you have left your previous insitutution(s) in good standing. If you're transferring with fewer than 30 semester hours of transferable credit, you must submit placement scores from the ACT (preferred), SAT or COMPASS tests. Test results must be less than two years old. If you have attended an unaccredited postsecondary institution, your admission status will be determined on an individual basis. See "Undergraduate Transfer Credits" on page 30 for more information on transferring credits.
High school students may take classes at UAF. One program, Alaska Higher Education Admission Decision (AHEAD), requires formal admittance to UAF. The other two enrollment options, Secondary Student Enrollment and TECH PREP, have specific requirements but do not call for admission to UAF. See the Registration section for description of non-admission opportunities.
If you're a qualified applicant, a letter of acceptance will be mailed to you once the above items are received and evaluated.
Conditional acceptance -- Your letter of acceptance will list any conditions under which you are being admitted.
Your offer of admission to UAF is valid for the semester for which you applied. If you want to postpone your admission until a later semester, you may request permission from the Office of Admissions. Your enrollment may be postponed for up to one calendar year as long as you do not attend another school outside the University of Alaska Statewide System.
If you're an undergraduate degree student and you choose not to enroll for a semester or more, you may be eligible to re-enroll in your degree program without reapplying for admission. You remain eligible to register for classes in your degree program if:
If you meet all the above requirements, you need only consult with your advisor and register for classes. If you do not meet all these requirements, you need to submit a regular undergraduate application for admission along with the $40 processing fee and transcripts of any non-UA course work taken.
