Top ranked

We're a top university

We've got brand-new engineering labs, 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 — explore our 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

Finding the money

With our low tuition, an education won't cost you a fortune. But everyone can use help paying for college, so there are grants, scholarships, student jobs, work-study and loans.

Take a tour

Check out our campuses

A visit is the best way to find out if UAF is right for you. 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 around the Fairbanks campus.


Scholarships galore

UAF has hundreds of privately funded scholarships. Let someone help you succeed. The application deadline is Feb. 15 every year.
