If you need financial assistance to help pay for your tuition, the very first step is completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The UAS school code is 001065. For questions about how to complete the FAFSA, visit the U.S. Department of Education's FAFSA resources

Our Student Success advisors are available to assist you with understanding your options and the processes involved. As you are working through the  UAS Financial Aid checklist, don’t hesitate to ask questions.

UAS Sitka Scholarships 

Most UAS scholarships require completion of the FAFSA and the University of Alaska Foundation Scholarship Application. Completing both will make students eligible for the greatest number of Sitka scholarship opportunities. Contact a Student Success Center team member or the UAS Financial Aid Office for advice or assistance with scholarship procedures. 

It is generally expected that Sitka Scholarship recipients:

  • Are admitted in a UAS Sitka academic program OR are admitted to a UAS Juneau- or Ketchikan-based program but enrolled in Sitka Campus courses
  • Maintain at least a 2.0 GPA
  • Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress

The Sitka Scholarship Committee begins meeting soon after each semester priority application deadline. To check on the status of your UAS Sitka scholarship application, contact an Advisor at (907) 747-7777, or email

Regional Scholarships 

There are a wide variety of scholarships available through the university, the state, and many other organizations. Pay close attention to the application process and deadlines, as they vary depending on the funding agency. 

Note that all Regional UAS Scholarships have a February 15th priority application deadline for scholarships that would be awarded the following academic year. Most UAS regional scholarships are intended for full-time students enrolled in 12 or more credits. Many apply to Juneau campus students but others are accessible to Sitka Campus students as well. Sitka students can apply both for these general UAS scholarships and for Sitka Campus Scholarships. 

Application instructions and eligibility for regional UAS scholarships 

Be aware of scholarship scams!

It is expected that the recipients: 

*Higher grade point averages may be required of some awards. Check individual requirements for maintaining scholarships. There are a limited number of scholarships for part-time students; students should address in their essays if they plan to attend part-time.

The UAS Regional Scholarship Selection committees begin meeting after March 1 and may continue into the summer months. Every effort is made to notify successful applicants as soon as possible; however, it is impossible to send every unsuccessful applicant a response due to the volume of applications and scholarships. To check on the status of your UAS regional scholarship application, contact the Juneau Scholarship Coordinator at (907) 796-6255 or via email at after May 1st.

University of Alaska students, studying at any UA institution or campus, are eligible to work up to 20 hours per week on campus during the semester, and up to 40 hours per week during breaks. Wages are typically between $9.50 and $10.50 per hour, and are paid directly to the student every two weeks.

Federal Work Study Program 

This is a need-based work program which requires that students file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You will need to include the University of Alaska Southeast's School or Title IV Code: 001065. See Application Procedures for more information. 

The amount of the Federal Work Study (FWS) award over an academic year is determined after all other has been awarded. Work Study students can be given hiring preference. Federal Work Study is considered a part of your financial aid, and may help you to be even more eligible for need-based aid (such as Pell grant or Stafford loan, or both) in the next academic year. This program is also a useful way to minimize how much you borrow.

If you are interested in Federal Work Study: 

  1. Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if you have not done so already. The UAS School code is 001065. When accepting your federal financial aid package, be sure to accept Federal Work Study (FWS) to be given hiring preference if you decide to seek on-campus student employment at any time in the year. 
  2. Contact the Student Success Center or the Financial Aid Office to verify your eligibility.
  3. Apply for student employment with UAS. Sometimes casual employment opportunities exist that are not yet posted, so be sure to ask at the Student Success Center to be notified as employment opportunities arise. Be sure to mention that you are FWS eligible.
