Dual enrollment is for qualified secondary school students who are simultaneously enrolled in high school curriculum and wish to take UAS courses.
Employees and their families may take advantage of the university’s tuition waiver program to work toward a degree or improve their job skills. Tuition waivers are also available for senior citizens who are Alaska residents and are otherwise age eligible to receive full social security retirement benefits. Registration is on a space available basis for senior citizens and is only allowed on or after the first day of instruction. Waivers cover tuition only — fees not covered by the waiver (i.e. student activity fees, course lab fees, health center fees, technology fees, etc.) are the student’s responsibility and must be paid by the deadline.
Visit the Student Accounts Office's Tuition Waivers page for more information.
