What are UAF’s veterans’ services?
UAF has made a firm commitment to veterans and the active military communities in the Fairbanks area. Veterans’ Services are comprised of specific staff members in Financial Aid, Admissions, Career Services, and the newly opened Veterans’ Resource Center, who have a focus on veterans and their families. We are here to help you with any challenges you encounter while transitioning from a military to an academic environment.
Who can use the services?
All veterans—active duty, reserve, guard, separated, and retired—and their dependents who are exploring the academic opportunities available to them at UAF. The Veterans’ Resource Center (and its dedicated Veterans Service Officer) is open to all veterans and dependents seeking help regardless of their academic intent or institutional affiliation.
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.
