Continuing Education

UAF's Tanana Valley Campus, a component of the College of Rural Alaska, responds to individual and community needs for innovative training and high quality continuing education programs. Academic short courses and non-credit workshops are designed to meet the needs of practitioners in the trades or professions. TVC provides in-service training for teachers, supervisory skill seminars for local businesses and agencies, and general programs for cultural enrichment.

The Tanana Valley Campus, in conjunction with other UAF colleges and schools, provides academic courses during evening hours and on weekends on the Fairbanks campus and at its off-campus locations. The alternative course schedules and delivery modes are designed to increase access for working adults and other students whose work, community, or family commitments preclude their participation in resident, semester-based programs. Some courses are enhanced through television instruction or computer programs to permit students to progress at their own pace. Night and weekend courses are offered to allow the student working toward a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in UAF's School of Management or to fulfill general university requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree. TVC also serves the non-degree seeking student with evening courses for general interest.
