Applying for Admission: Occupational Endorsement Programs
Applications for admission to occupational endorsement programs are due no later than July 1 for the fall semester, or Nov. 1 for the spring semester.
High school seniors are encouraged to apply for admission as early as 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.
You may apply to an occupational endorsement program online at www.uaf.edu/admissions/. You can also apply by printing an application from the above website or requesting an application from the Office of Admissions. Before your application can be reviewed, the Office of Admissions must receive:
- Application for Admission
Your application must be received before the published deadlines, along with a $40 nonrefundable fee.
Most applicants to occupational endorsement programs are not required to submit high school or college transcripts but all are strongly encouraged to do so. Transfer students who want to receive credit for prior work must submit official transcripts.
For admission to occupational endorsement programs, you must show official documentation:
- that you are at least 18 years old, or
- have a high school diploma*, or
- have a General Educational Development (GED) diploma.
* To earn a high school diploma in Alaska, you must fulfill all curriculum requirements and satisfactorily complete all three competency areas of the High School Qualifying Exam.
Students should check with an advisor for the specific requirements for their program.
Occupational endorsement programs are designed to give students occupational training in a specific field. These programs require less than 30 credit hours and will be posted to the student's transcript upon completion and approval by the academic department. The credit hours may be applied to other undergraduate degree programs (when applicable).
