University of Alaska

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

LOCATION-BASED LEARNING
 

We acknowledge the Alaska Native nations upon whose ancestral lands our campuses 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. 

 

STATE OF OPPORTUNITY 

The environment, economy, and demographics of the circumpolar North 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. 

AFFORDABLE QUALITY

Tuition and fees at the University of Alaska are way below the national average. We also offer a full range of financial aid resources and scholarships to help pay for education.

 

IN-STATE TUITION

Our in-state tuition program generously extends to participants in the Education Trust of Alaska making UA an affordable option for exceptional quality.
