To get started, you will need to determine what type of student you are.
A first-time freshman is a student who has never attended college other than as a high school student.
If you completed college units after graduation from high school, you are considered a transfer student and must meet those requirements.
If you are a student wanting to take courses for personal interest or growth and do not plan to earn a certificate or degree, you are considered a Non-Degree Seeking student.
The University of Alaska provides free tuition to Alaskans who are eligible for full Social Security retirement benefits, generally age 66 and older. If you plan to use the Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver, you must wait to register until the day the course begins.
In general, these are students who have served or are serving in the US Armed Forces and their dependents. The exact details of eligibility should be verified with your branch of service. Contact Nancy Castro.
