Credits already earned

Our team of experts will work with you to make sure you get as much credit applied toward your degree as possible. Credit towards a UAF degree can come from previous college experience, military service or other prior learning — you may be closer than you think!

Flexible degree paths

UAF has several degree completion pathways and experts to help you identify the best way to maximize the credit you’ve already earned. With online or in-person class options, you can decide what’s the best path for you to finish your degree.  

Different is great

You’re not a typical student, and UAF isn’t a typical university. Whether you’re coming back to college after a break or you’ve already had a career (or two!), finishing your degree at UAF can help you take the next step and achieve your goals.

Career goals

Finishing your degree may be the little “extra” that puts your résumé on the top of the pile or qualifies you for that promotion. If you’re close to an associate’s or bachelor’s, finish strong at UAF.


Wherever you are

UAF has more than 40 completely online degree programs and 400+ online courses, so wherever you are, your degree can be too. In-person classes can be attended in the evenings, weekends, over the summer and even over winter break to give you the most flexibility for your busy schedule.
