UAF’s eLearning & Distance Education offers an alternative for anyone preferring an online educational option. The advantage of e-learning, also known as online learning, is its flexibility. Students select their own hours of study and work in surroundings they choose. E-learning offers the freedom to structure a personal academic schedule and continue educational progress, even when it is impossible or challenging to attend scheduled, face-to-face classes.

UAF eLearning & Distance Education offers more than 350 courses in 60 disciplines and offers degrees and certificates completely online. eLearning courses follow all university calendars and deadlines and must be completed within the semester time frame. These courses use the Blackboard Learning Management System. You are required to have reliable Internet access to complete eLearning courses.

For UAF students, eLearning courses count as residence credit. When a student enrolls in an eLearning course, the course may be used to determine full-time/part-time status and eligibility for financial aid and scholastic action. The grade will average in your semester and cumulative GPAs.
