Form I-20 Certificate of Eligibility for use in applying for F-1 (Student) visas will NOT be issued to students to attend a summer course or courses at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
However, individuals may enter the US as a visitor and audit a UAF course. This means no credit will be earned but the same costs will be charged.
Also, students maytake a UAF summer course for credit if the student is in the US for purposes other than study (primary purpose of the trip is not to study) and the credit course is not the primary reason for entering the US.
Form DS-2019 for use in applying for the J-1 Exchange Visitor Nondegree Student visa may be issued if the student has over half of the funding for their academic program provided by sources other than personal or family. Non-personal or family funding may be in the form of government or school grants. Government loans are considered personal funding.
F-1 status: Under current immigration regulations, you may take classes at other U.S. schools without additional immigration authorization.
Registration: International students currently IN the United States can register the same way that other summer UAF students register. Go to our registration pagefor detailed instructions on registration.
