2003-2004 UAF Catalog


How to Earn a Degree


To earn a UAF degree, you must satisfy three sets of requirements: general university requirements, degree requirements, and program (major) requirements. General university requirements and degree requirements are described in this section of the catalog; major requirements are found in the Degrees and Programs section; for baccalaureate degree requirements in brief, see chart on pages 24-25.

If your degree program is delivered collaboratively within the UA system (e.g., Information Technology Specialist, Early Childhood Education, Human Services, and Rural Human Services), then the credits you earn from each UA institution will be counted toward fulfillment of the degree requirements and fulfillment of the minimum institutional residency requirements. Institutional residency requirements are the minimum number of credits you must earn from the campus where you earn a degree.
