UA Board of Regents policy waives regular tuition for Alaska residents at the age of 65. You are eligible to utilize the senior citizen tuition waiver and enroll in UAF courses if:

  • you are a permanent resident of Alaska;
  • there is space (i.e., no waitlist) for the class or classes you want.

You may not register until the first day of instruction if using a senior citizen tuition waiver. You must meet both age and residency requirements by one of the following dates to be eligible for the corresponding semester: Sept. 1 for fall; Jan. 1 for spring; May 1 for summer. Reimbursements will not be made to senior citizens who pay for a course and then request a waiver. Please call 907-474-7384 for more information.

Senior citizen tuition waivers cover tuition only. Courses have associated fees that are not covered by the waiver. Late fees and payment deadlines apply to those using tuition waivers.

Please submit waivers well in advance of the last day of registration to the Office of the Bursar at P.O. Box 757640 (UAF) or 907-474-5898.
