Dual Enrollment

FNSBSD high school students may be able to use Summer Sessions credits toward high school graduation. An Outside Credit Request Form is required. The approval for outside credit is given on a course-by-course basis and does not require admission to the university. This process must be completed with the school district prior to starting the university course.  

For more information contact your high school counselor or or visit this FNSBSD web page.

Regulations and Compliance

Once a high school student registers for a UAF class, they are covered by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) even though the high school student is a minor. As a result, the student determines what of their information can be released and to whom. Students can complete a FERPA Release Form giving access to their university information to parents or guardians.
