The University of Alaska in Fairbanks, Alaska, is the nation's northernmost Land, Sea and Space Grant University and international research center. The school promotes academic excellence, lifelong learning and student success through teaching, research opportunities and community service focusing on Alaska and the circumpolar North.
College life is very much tied to the community. The statewide Cooperative Extension Service and its district offices are located at the college and provide students the ability to actively volunteer in the community. The Marine Advisory Program is dedicated to help Alaska develop, use and conserve marine and coastal resources.
Students may also host their own radio show at the college's public broadcasting station or check out the UA Museum of the North, which contains information and artifacts about the cultural and natural history of Alaska.
To serve the diverse needs and interests of Alaskan students, the school offers academics in 139 degrees and 37 certificates like:
- Allied Health
- Automotive Technology
- Computer Science
Students who want to take their education outside of the classroom can take advantage of the university's study abroad opportunities.
Admissions require students to have earned a high school diploma and maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.0. If students have a cumulative GPA of 2.5, they can submit ACT and SAT scores, which must be at least 18 and 1290, respectively.
To be considered for financial aid through the form of merit, service and talent scholarships, fellowships, grants and student loans, students must file a FAFSA.
Honoring its commitment to contributing to the development of northern Alaska, the school awards Alaskan residents with discounted tuition costs.
