Veteran/Military Students

Military & Veteran Student Assistance

The admission requirements for military and veteran applicants are the same as any other transfer student. UAS accepts credits from Joint Services Transcript (JST). Applicants who have not attended college before, or have less than 24 college level credits, need to send official high school transcripts or their GED. After you have been admitted and submitted all of your transcripts, the Registrar's Office will complete an official transfer evaluation and evaluate documented military credit.

Students with the following military affiliations are eligible for resident tuition rates:

  • Active duty United States military and their spouse and dependent children;
  • United States veterans eligible for a Veterans Administration education benefit, and their spouse and dependent children;
  • Members of the National Guard and Reservists, their spouses and dependent children, regardless of whether they yet qualify as residents of the state under any other requirements.

For more information regarding assistance for military active duty and military veterans, please visit the Financial Aid Veterans’ Assistance page. If you have questions regarding veterans' or active duty educational benefits please contact our VA School Certifying Official, Deborah Rydman at 907-796-6368 or drrydman@alaska.edu.

Because the course schedule is available eight weeks prior to the start of the semester, we recommend students first register through UAOnline in order to secure a place in classes. Students are required to register through www.goarmyed.com for tuition assistance.

CTAM students will also be required to apply for graduation via www.goarmyed.com

If you are in a degree program elsewhere and would just like to take classes at UAS, you can register through the portal on www.goarmyed.com and you do not need to apply for admissions to UAS.
