International Student Exchange
UAF offers International Study opportunities of two sorts, International Student Exchange and Study Abroad. In both cases students are enrolled as UAF students while they are studying in a foreign setting, thus maintaining eligibility for financial aid and the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend. Credits earned go directly onto the students' UAF transcript. For more information, contact:
