The Interior Alaska Campus (IAC) at University of Alaska Fairbanks offers programs and support services to meet the unique needs of rural Alaskans. All our programs are bound by a common thread: to be community driven and culturally responsive.
IAC works with villages, tribal governments and community employers to identify workforce needs and provide relevant education — opportunities such as our Construction Trades Technology, Content Creators and Wildland Fire Science programs.
Communities and students are our top priority. Whether you’re interested in taking a single course or completing a degree, you’ll find that our faculty and advisors are here to work with you one-on-one every step of your journey and make sure you have all the tools to succeed.
Choose a program that matches your goals. We offer everything from certificates and occupational endorsements to associate degrees. Or, just take a course or two that strikes your interest.
While most of our students take courses online — using applications like Canvas and Zoom — we also bring face-to-face classes to communities in the region. Many courses offered are by request and focus on local workforce needs in fields such as:
- Computer information systems
- Construction trades
- Emergency medical services
- Tribal governance
IAC also provides dual credit and technical training classes that enable high school students to complete course requirements and receive college credits at the same time. Non-credit classes, such as food storage and preparation training and certified flagging, are also available.
Learning about the growth mindset and being able to identify this mindset within myself has really helped me accomplish quite a bit over the last few months. For example, I would have never considered applying for Honors College, but after the work and pride I took in my final essay, I’ve opened myself up to the idea of applying and getting more heavily involved in school and community clean-up projects.IAC Student, 2021
