UAF is here for you too

The college decision is an important one, and we realize that parents need to have just as much information about an institution as their son or daughter.

We look forward to helping your student achieve his or her academic goals and explore the possibilities of the Last Frontier — where inspiration is around every bend, independence is championed, and adventure is inevitable.

Health and Counseling offers multiple services right on campus including medical care and counseling with the student insurance plan.
