For admission to associate degree programs, you must be at least 18 years old or have earned a high-school diploma or successfully completed the GED examination.
If you're an associate degree or certificate student in good standing with a high-school diploma or its equivalent and later wish to enter a baccalaureate degree program, you may be admitted after earning, with a "C" average, 14 credits at the 100 level or above, of which nine credits must satisfy general baccalaureate degree
Baccalaureate Degree (Bachelor's Degree)
If you're an international student or a recent immigrant to the United States, additional admission requirements apply to you:
If you left UAF in good standing, haven't enrolled in an institution outside of the University of Alaska system, and haven't been absent more than two years, you must request readmission and an update of your degree status before you register. No processing fee is required if your readmission update is received by Aug. 1 for the fall semester and Dec. 1 for the spring semester. Requests for readmission received after these dates must be accompanied by a $35 fee and will be processed if time permits.
If you were on probation at UAF or were enrolled in an institution outside the UA system or if it's been more than two years since you were last enrolled in your degree program at UAF, you will need to submit the regular undergraduate application for admission form, pay the $35 processing fee and submit official transcripts from any colleges or universities you attended since you last enrolled at UAF.
If you're a UAF graduate and are seeking to enter a second undergraduate degree program, you must submit an undergraduate application for admission. If you're a UAF associate or certificate student and you wish to enter a bachelor's degree program, you will have to submit an application for admission.
If you wish to attend UAF, but not as a degree student, you must be a high-school graduate or at least 18 years old. As a "non-degree student," you are subject to the placement examination requirements for freshman courses. You must maintain a 2.0 GPA to remain in good standing. You won't be considered a degree candidate until you've met regular admission requirements and filed transcripts. As a non-degree student you aren't eligible for financial aid or priority registration.
If you're a qualified high-school student, you may enroll in one or two UAF courses while you're still in high school. To enroll, you must present written approval from your high-school counselor or principal and your parents, and an official transcript indicating a satisfactory GPA in your high-school work. If you're a high-school senior with a GPA of at least 2.5, you may register for two courses for a maximum of six credits. If your GPA is between 2.0 and 2.5, you may register for one course each semester. If you're a junior with a GPA of at least 2.75, you may register for one course each semester. If you're an academically exceptional freshman or sophomore high-school student, you may register for one course each semester with the approval of the director of admissions. You must submit all of the documents listed above. You may continue to take UAF courses as long as your high school and college grades are satisfactory and you have permission from your high-school principal or counselor and from your parents each time you enroll. Students in elementary, junior high or middle school are not eligible to register for UAF classes.
Students with Bachelor's Degrees
If you hold a bachelor's degree but have not defined or declared your graduate program, you may enroll as a non-degree student. You're in this category if you are:
If you performed at an academic level that made you ineligible to continue your studies at UAF and dropped out or were dismissed from school, academic bankruptcy can offer you a new undergraduate start.
for Returning Students
You may apply for readmission on the basis that your prior academic record be disregarded. You begin your college study again with no credits attempted, no credits earned and no quality points reflected in subsequent grade point average calculations. You may use academic bankruptcy only once. You may request academic bankruptcy for records from present UAF units that were not part of UAF prior to fall 1987.
To declare academic bankruptcy, you must submit an Application for Academic Bankruptcy form. Before applying for admission on this basis, at least two years must have elapsed since the end of the last full-time semester you attended. Academic bankruptcy application forms are available at the Admissions or Registrar's offices.
Your prior academic record remains a part of your overall academic record and appears on your transcript, but none of the credits you earned previously can be used in your new program. The only time these credits will be included, however, is in GPA computations for graduation with honors (See "Graduation with Honors"). You may be allowed advanced standing or a waiver of requirements just as any nonbankrupt student, but you won't be allowed credit by examination for courses lost in bankruptcy.
