Welcome to UAF!
Let us know whether you'd like to accept your admission, postpone it or if you'll be unable to attend.
If you're starting at UAF in the academic years 2022-23, 2023-24, 2024-25, your ACT and SAT score requirements for admission will be waived, but if you’ve taken the SAT, ACT, Accuplacer or AP or IB exam — send us your scores for course placement. Be sure to take your math placement test.
To be considered official, transcripts must arrive in sealed envelopes from the institution. You may also submit your transcripts electronically through a secure transcript service.
You’ll need to meet with your advisor before you are eligible to register for your classes.
The priority housing application deadline is June 30 — apply before then for the most room options. First-year students 20 years old and younger are required to live on-campus their first year. For questions or assistance with your housing application, please contact UAF Residence Life at 907-474-7247 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
UAF does not require COVID-19 vaccinations for students, staff or faculty to attend classes or live on campus. Read the full message from Chancellor White. Un-vaccinated individuals are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing while on campus.
Required immunizations for students living in campus housing
All newly admitted students living in campus housing must provide proof of the following immunizations, which can be uploaded to the Student Health and Counseling Center patient portal.
- Meningococcal (MCV4) - administered after the age of 16
- Tetanus (Tdap, TD) - administered in the last 10 years)
- 2 Mumps, Measles, Rubella (MMR)

Now that you have registered for classes, we will only be able to provide your student information to you. If you would like for your parents, guardian or another individual to have access to your information, submit a FERPA release to grant them access to some or all of your information. This includes grades, account balances and any other information related to you.
The PolarExpress card is the official UAF photo identification card used by students to access UAF facilities and to make purchases. The card includes your name, photograph and student identification number. Your PolarExpress card is how you'll access secure buildings, such as residence halls, your meal plan, bear bucks, use the library and computer labs and other activities. Learn more about the PolarExpress card.
New fall students — After August 1, complete the PolarExpress card request form, including uploading a passport-style "selfie" and a copy of a government-issued ID. Do not submit the form prior to August 1 in the semester prior to starting classes. Your PolarExpress card will be available to pick up at Rev-it-Up Residence Hall Move-in Day, or at the Office of the Bursar at the start of the semester.
Check the academic calendar for important dates and deadlines. We recommend that you pay close attention to add/drop and withdrawal deadlines each semester.
