FAFSA application deadline is June 30.

Once your FAFSA has been processed, your name will be┬╗submitted to the grants for which you are eligible. Grants are an excellent option since they do not need to be repaid.

Try Googling grants to find additional opportunities.

Some popular grant sources for our students include:

Educational loans generally have long-term repayment schedules, offer low-interest rates, and often allow deferring payments.

Due to the pandemic, the Accuplacer placement test has temporarily been replaced with another process.

Students are individually responsible for meeting all academic regulations and degree/certificate requirements. Students must submit an Application for Graduation during, or before, the semester they intend to graduate. See deadlines.

Application for Graduation (online)
Requires UAF login. Use Firefox or other non-Microsoft browsers for best results.

There is a $50 fee associated with each application

Late applications are accepted up to one month after initial deadline with an additional $30 late fee.

Applications will be canceled for all students who are unable to meet their graduation requirements by the end of the semester. Students must reapply for graduation for the semester they intend to graduate.

If all graduation requirements are completed by the end of the semester, the certificate/degree will be awarded within six weeks after final grades have posted. Diplomas will be sent out approximately six weeks after the end of the semester.

Once your degree is posted you can view it on your unofficial transcript on UAOnline.
