Come Home to Alaska


Savings for Every (Future) Alaskan

Come Home to Alaska could save you $13,000 in tuition each year. Don’t wait to become a resident elsewhere — make your dreams affordable now by coming home to Alaska.

To apply you will need to submit an application for resident tuition and proof that you are a lineal descendant of a current Alaska resident. The best documentation will be your birth certificate. Your parent, grandparent, or great grandparent will need to show documentation that they are a current Alaska resident.
