Choosing to go to college and then picking the right school and degree is a big decision. I’m here to help you navigate the start of your journey. If you have any questions before or during the application process, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Apply to UAF

UAF is unique because we allow students to take all or just some of their classes online, all counting toward the same degree. Here, you’ll find clear directions for how to successfully apply for either option. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out — I can help!

How to Pay

Earning a degree is both a time and financial commitment. You should start thinking about how you’re going to pay for it early on in the process. UAF’s Financial Aid office offers clear explanations for how to pay and ways to alleviate the financial burden. If you need help mapping out a budget specific to you, set up an appointment with UAF eCampus’s Financial Coach.

Newly Admitted
Welcome to Nanook Nation! If you’ve already been admitted, here’s a quick rundown of the steps to take to ensure a successful semester ahead.


We’re Accredited

Since 1934, the University of Alaska Fairbanks has been accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, one of the six regional accrediting bodies recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Your Degree Is Reputable

UAF eCampus adapts its courses to be better suited to online learning but all UAF courses pass the same high-quality standards. Your diploma and transcripts will not indicate you are an online student.

Quality Matters

UAF partners with Quality Matters, a nationally recognized peer review process for certifying quality in online courses. We are the first university in the nation to earn Exemplary Program status, which includes a certification for outstanding student support.

About Me

I grew up in the suburbs north of Denver and spent a few years traveling and working before beginning my associate degree at Red Rocks Community College in 2001. I transferred to the University of Alaska Fairbanks to finish my Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2003 and stayed for my master’s degree, studying cold tolerance in plants. I have worked at UAF since 2013 and love helping students succeed. When I’m not at work, you’ll probably find me training for triathlons or spending time with my husband and cats. My goal is to complete a running race or triathlon in all 50 states (10% done already!) and one of my proudest achievements is finishing Ironman Boulder in 2015.
