International Admissions

The University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) is a small public university with a culturally diverse and international population of students, faculty, and staff.  UAS offers international students personal attention, small classrooms, nationally recognized education programs, and research opportunities in the unique setting of Southeast Alaska. Choosing to study in the United States is a big decision. We are here to support our International Students through every moment of your education. From applying to graduating and beyond. 

International students may apply for admission to associate, bachelor, and graduate-level degrees. The deadlines to apply for international students are:

  • Fall Semester: April 1
  • Spring Semester: September 1

See our international admissions page to learn more and apply.

International Student Advising

International students are assigned an International Student Advisor. International student advising enhances and fortifies the communication efforts between the student and university services as the student navigates admissions, registration, travel, and attendance.

The university assigns each international student an advisor to help with immigration, admissions, registration, travel, and attendance. To fully support our international students, the university requires that students meet once a month with the International Student Advisor. You may contact an advisor below.
