High school students
High school (and secondary school) students can take classes at UAF. There are a few options for attending:
The Alaska Higher Education Admission Decision program allows qualified high school students to be formally admitted to UAF as general studies students. AHEAD students are assigned an academic advisor and follow the registration timeline for degree-seeking students.
To qualify, students must have completed three-fourths of their high school core curriculum and have a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher. (To qualify for federal financial aid, you must have either a high school diploma or a GED.)
To apply to the AHEAD program:
Office of Admissions
P.O. Box 757480
Fairbanks, AK 99775-7480
The AHEAD program application requires your signature as well as signatures of your parent/guardian, and high school principal or counselor.
If you are a high school student wanting to take one or two classes at UAF, secondary enrollment is for you.

UAF also grants advanced credit, with a waiver of fees, for IB higher-level and some standard-level exams on which students have earned a score of 4 or better, or a score of 5 or better for mathematics.
