UAF International Programs & Initiatives

After Acceptance for Exchange

Congratulations on being accepted to participate in an exchange 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 accepted to UAF, the Office of International Programs & Initiatives provides you with your official letter of admission. We will send that letter to your home international exchange coordinator, along with your immigration documents (Form DS-2019), assuming you have submitted proof of funding and a copy of your passport (if you have not submitted those documents, the issuance of your DS-2019 will be delayed).  Along with your DS-2019, you will receive other important information. Please take the time to review the information in that packet, and to also review our website.
