Welcome to #NanookNation.
Whatever you're looking for, you can find it here.

Get outside the classroom, where fieldwork really is in the field — unless it's in the forest, ocean or mountains. Then burrow into your books at Alaska's biggest library, hit a dorm dance or join a student club or three. Around here, if you're game, you're in.

Applying for admission

You can find most anything you need to know about applying to UAF on our admissions website, and our student ambassadors and admissions counselors are here to help you each step of the way.

We're a top university

We've got our own rocket range, an icebreaking science ship and professors who've published more Arctic research than any other university worldwide. But we offer far more than science — we're enriched by a full suite of art, theater, film and language programs. It's no wonder U.S. News & World Report calls UAF a top-tier national university — the only one in Alaska.

Financial aid icon

Finding the money

An education shouldn't cost a fortune. Even with our low tuition, everyone can use help paying for college, so there are grants, scholarships, student jobs, work-study and loans.


Tour campus icon

Check out our campuses

There's no better way to find out if UAF is right for you than to visit us. See the whole Fairbanks campus, or one of our rural campuses, in action. Talk to students, staff and faculty. If you can't visit, our virtual tour can show you many parts of the Fairbanks campus.

Scholarships galore

UAF has hundreds of privately funded scholarships available to students. The application deadline is Feb. 15 every year.
