NOTE: All SOM courses are charged an additional surcharge of 20% of the full tuition.  For the 2017/2018 academic year, these fees are $49/credit for undergraduate courses (300 to 400-level only) and $93/credit for graduate courses (600-level); these fees are not covered by tuition waivers. Additional UAF fees may also apply.

You can find the complete estimated cost of attendance, including applicable fees, room, and board, for either resident/online or non-resident students on the UAF Tuition & Fees page. For a better idea of tuition expense you can also use the UAF tuition calculator.


Financial Aid

SOM’s MBA program offers some financial aid opportunities to its students in the form of scholarships and paid teaching assistant (TA) positions. There are usually four available TA positions that each span a full academic year (two semesters). TA benefits include an annual stipend, 9-credit tuition waiver, health insurance, and teaching experience. Teaching assistantships will be competitive among admitted students. Contact MBA Program Manager Amber Lammers for more information.
