We meet you where you are.
The University of Alaska Southeast offers online learning options that fit around your life and within your budget.
Increasingly, jobs in Alaska are requiring some post- secondary training or degree. Earning your degree or credential will set you apart from other applicants or may make you eligible for a promotion in your current job. Online classes are offered year-round. Fall and spring 15-week semesters and a condensed summer term allow you to expedite your academic progress.
The UAS Online Experience
Online class sizes are small, and comprehensive academic support and tutoring is available for online and on-campus students. Depending on the subject, some classes are delivered live with a set online meeting time; other subjects have designated course content with set deadlines but no required meeting time. Many classes offer both formats. Additionally, many programs offer independent research opportunities with faculty who are experts in their subjects.
Affordable and Convenient
UAS in-state tuition is half the cost per credit hour of most other online schools. Online learning is so flexible, many of our students continue to work while earning their degree. UAS specialists in financial aid will help you explore the many scholarships and other financial options available.
UAS is a transfer-friendly college with a generous transfer credit policy reducing your time to completion and minimizing redundancy. Students with prior training in various fields may qualify to earn college credit for related non-college training; ask your advisor for details.

“I have always been pleasantly surprised by the overwhelming amount of inclusion, support, and encouragement by UAS staff and faculty. I have laughed, cried, vented, struggled, thrived, and reached my goals by the hands of my teachers and the supporting staff who humbly and happily commit their time to me.”
