Regardless of where prior college credits have been earned, UAS’ degree completion specialists will help students outline plans that fit their goals and needs. Credit for prior learning, military courses and occupations will be considered in each student’s personalized plan for success.  

As a special incentive for newly-returning students, UAS is offering a 3 credit tuition waiver for eligible Finish College Alaska applicants--up to an equivalent of $700--among other benefits. To be eligible , applicants must have completed the equivalent of 60 semester credit hours from a regionally accredited college or university.
