NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION ATTENDANCE POLICY
All new University of Alaska Fairbanks students are encouraged to attend UAF New Student Orientation. The UAF NSO program is MANDATORY for all first-year baccalaureate degree-seeking students entering UAF with fewer than 30 credits, students participating in the Residence Life E.D.G.E. program, international students (undergraduate F-1 status), and UA Scholars. A $75 Orientation fee will be billed directly to your student account. The fee will need to be settled during fee payment at the beginning of the semester.
Refunds are only granted when you are not required to attend NSO and/or with a written statement from the mandated student stating why they are unable to attend NSO.
