University of Alaska

Alaska is a place of discovery, resilience, adventure, abundance, and cultural and geographic diversity.


We acknowledge the Alaska Native nations upon whose ancestral lands our universities reside. Alaska’s vast environment of rainforests, tundra, coastal shores, and mountains provides stunning locations for study, research, and play.

With university campuses in many of the most beautiful places in Alaska, from big cities to small villages, we have a place for everyone, whether fresh out of high school or returning later in life to start a new career path. 



The circumpolar North's environment, economy, and demographics are changing in complex but predictable ways. The rapid changes present an urgency to understand and adapt to these dynamic times. The value of scientific research includes direct investment in local economies and improvements in community life. Our research engages undergraduate and graduate students so they gain skills and knowledge to become tomorrow's leaders. 

High demand for teachers, nurses, engineers, and other skilled workforce fields drives robust academic opportunities and unparalleled job placement. 


Tuition rates and fees at the University of Alaska are lower than the national average. UA also offers a full range of financial aid resources and scholarships to help pay for education.



The Education Trust of Alaska generously offers resident tuition rates to its non-resident plan participants making UA an affordable option for those who do not reside in Alaska. A two-year waiting period applies.
