About APU

With a mission of providing experiential learning, personal attention, small classes and faith- based values education, Alaska Pacific University gives students a unique campus experience.

APU academics offer students hands on learning opportunities in one of the most beautiful environmental settings in the United States. Small class sizes, self-directed learning and emphasis on personal growth help students prepare for success after college.

Students may choose from 11 undergraduate majors and five graduate degrees, as well as an associate’s degrees and several graduate certificates. New students are encouraged to participate in Journeys, an outdoor wilderness adventure designed to teach students backcountry safety techniques and provide a time for reflection and discussion about what you want to get out of your college experience.

Admissions requirements for first-year students include ACT or SAT scores, two letters of recommendation and a personal essay.

Financial aid is available to eligible students through federal, state, institutional and private sources. Additional information on available financial aid packages can be accessed by contacting Student Financial Services office, and prospective students can also use the online tuition calculator to estimate the yearly cost to attend Alaska Pacific University.

APU college life offers enough variety to fulfill a student’s quest for campus and community involvement. Students can choose from a number of housing options, and there are numerous recreational activities and clubs to participate in on and off campus.

Students who enjoy skiing will find ample opportunity to test and utilize their skills at the APU Nordic Ski Center and the Thomas Training Center on Eagle Glacier. The broad-based programs at the ski center offer year round training opportunities for students and community members, as well as for world-class competitors, and the training center provides a first-class coaching staff.
