UAF is committed to all veterans and military students—active duty, reserve, guard, separated and retired—as well as their dependents who are exploring UAF's academic opportunities. Staff members in Financial Aid, Admissions, Career Services, Veterans' Services and the Veterans’ Resource Center are here to help you with any challenges you encounter while working while in or transitioning from a military to an academic environment.
Did you know that UAF offers a major and two minors for students with military backgrounds? Ask about the Homeland Security and Emergency Management bachelor's degree and the Military Security Studies and Leadership minors.
Avoid late BAH payments and school late fees! Initiate your VA paperwork 60-90 days prior to your school start date. Apply for your GI BILL benefits through the VONAPP!
The UAF Financial Aid office assists veterans, service members, and eligible dependents with paperwork for degree and certificate programs. As a liaison with the Department of Veterans' Affairs, the School Certifying Official monitors the academic progress of eligible students in compliance with Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations.
