Top ranked

We're a top university

We've got brand-new engineering labs, our own rocket range, an icebreaking science ship and professors who've published more Arctic research than any other university worldwide. But we offer far more than science — explore our full suite of art, theater, film and language programs. It's no wonder U.S. News & World Report calls UAF a top-tier national university — the only one in Alaska.


Affordable excellence

You can get the best of college without paying a fortune. You'll find world-class academic programs and affordable tuition at UAF. We make high-quality education accessible.

Financial aid and scholarships

Finding the money

With our low tuition, an education won't cost you a fortune. But everyone can use help paying for college, so there are grants, student jobs, work-study and loans. If you're new to UAF, the Nanook Pledge could get you four years of aid. UAF also has hundreds of privately funded scholarships -- apply by Feb. 15 and let someone help you succeed.
