Newly Admitted International Students
Congratulations on being admitted to the University of Alaska Fairbanks! We are excited that you will be joining our community, and want to do everything possible to help you feel welcome. You are joining a proud academic community with many members spread around the globe! We look forward to your arrival. Please, let us know if you have any questions or if we can do anything to ease your arrival.
Once you are formally admitted to UAF, the Office of Admissions and the Registrar will send you an email notifying you of your admission. They also provide International Programs & Initiatives with your official letter of admission. The original admission letter and your immigration document (Form I-20) will be shipped as soon as possible. Please note: Under U.S. immigration regulations, the I-20 cannot be issued or shipped until your documentation of funding and a copy of your passport identification page has been received.
Along with your I-20, you will receive other important information. Please take the time to review the information in that packet and also additional information on our website.
