Great Alaskan Accounting People (GAAP)

Great Alaskan Accounting People (GAAP) is a superb student organization for students to supplement their classroom experience. GAAP members prepare for the professional world by hosting guest lecturers, visiting accounting firms in both Fairbanks and Anchorage, and through their Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, preparing and filing income tax statements for UAF students and the community, free of charge.


“The student organization, Great Alaskan Accounting People,  added to my knowledge of the accounting world. It filled in the gaps that textbooks couldn’t demonstrate by educating me on the communication and networking side of being an accounting professional. By becoming involved in GAAP, I was able to serve my peers, create meaningful relationships, become familiar with potential employers and prepare for a career upon completing my degree.”
