Before Applying to UAS

Veterans: Apply for education benefits with Veteran's Affairs. To start your VA benefits, you'll need to apply via Vets.gov. Direct Deposit is recommended during the Vets.gov Application. If you are transferring to UAS from another institution, complete VA Form 22-1995 Change of Institution.

Active Duty/Reserve Military: please contact your Educational Services Officer (ESO) within your Military Service prior to enrolling at UAS.

Complete the University of Alaska admission application and have official transcripts sent from your high school (if you have not attended college, or have less than one year of college level credits), from all previous colleges you have attended, and/or the military.

Submit Official Transcripts

High School Transcripts: Send in-progress transcripts during your senior year for early admission. After graduation, have your school send your final official transcript.

College Transcripts: If you have taken college classes outside of the University of Alaska system, have your previous college or university send an official copy of your transcript. You do not need to request transcripts from any University of Alaska campus (Anchorage, Fairbanks, Southeast, or other branch campuses).

For full admission, UAS requires official copies of final transcripts. To be considered official, transcripts must be mailed/emailed directly from the high school, or from a transcript request service for college transcripts. If you bring your transcript to a UAS campus in person, it must be in a sealed envelope from the school or college.
