When planning your college budget here are things you should include:

Tuition and Fees: These costs vary with the student's educational level (graduate or undergraduate), enrollment status (full- or part-time) and residency (Alaska resident, Western Undergraduate Exchange, or  non-resident). Averages are listed on year-specific budgets. For tuition and fee information view the UAS Tuition schedule.

Books and Supplies: These costs vary with a student's course load. Averages are listed on year-specific budgets. Please review the budget links below.

Board: An allowance for food.

Room: The average UAS student's costs of rent or on-campus housing.

Transportation:  The cost depends on how close a student lives to campus and their car expenses. Students may also request aid for airfare if they plan to return to their hometown during the school year.

Personal Expenses: A student should budget for clothing, laundry, medical and dental expenses, recreation, personal supplies and other items. 

Personal Computer and Child Care: Within limits, these expenses can be included in your budget if they are related to your education. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for further information.
