The Alaska Advantage program encourages high school students to take high-quality online courses, offered by University of Alaska Fairbanks and University of Alaska Southeast! These college courses will help you get a jump start on your college career and meet your high school requirements at the same time. Students who enroll in the Alaska Advantage Program will:
UAF offers more than 100 General Education Requirement (GER) courses online. GERs are required for baccalaureate, associate of arts and associate of science degrees.
If this is your first time enrolling in a dual enrollment course we recommend starting with one at a time.
It is the student’s responsibility to check their account balance at UAOnline. Tuition and fees must be paid before the UAF payment deadline. UAF does not mail bills or invoices but does send notices to the student’s alaska.edu email account. If a student officially drops a UAF eCampus course before the UAF add/drop deadline for that semester, the student will receive a full refund of tuition and fees. If a school district or home school network is paying the student’s bill, students or parents need to contact their counselor or teacher and the UAF Bursar’s Office (907-474-7384) to ensure payment has been made.
Students can access in-progress grades via the course Learning Management System (i.e. Blackboard or Canvas). Students can access final grades and unofficial transcripts via the student’s UAOnline account. All UAF grading policies and procedures are detailed in the UAF catalog. Grades are a permanent part of the student’s academic record at UAF and the final grade earned will be posted to the student’s UAF transcript. Academic letter grades (A-F) will be included in the student’s UAF grade point average computation (GPA). Some UAF courses are graded pass/no pass (P/NP) rather than academic letter grades.
Many courses require placement exams prior to course enrollment to determine student preparedness. If placement exams are required, the eCampus Advisor will contact both the student and the contact teacher. Some courses also require proctored exams or quizzes, which will be detailed in the course syllabus. Teachers, a local library or school staff can serve as proctors. If this is not an option for a student, we can help them identify an appropriate proctor. Family members and coaches cannot serve as proctors.
UAF eCampus will ensure courses are delivered in formats consistent with reasonably available assistive technology. Students can contact UAF’s Office of Disability Services to request accommodations and their office will work directly with eCampus once they have identified the appropriate accommodations. Disability Services can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 907-474-5655.
Visit the UAF Bookstore. Use the “Find My Course Materials” section to enter your term and course and the system will show what materials are required. Students can order directly from the UAF Bookstore or from a different textbook provider by using the same ISBN number.
Students will order a lab kit through the UAF Bookstore or directly through the vendor. The kit will be safe for home use and has been designed specifically for our online courses.

I chose to enroll in dual credit because it gave me the greatest bang for my buck. I was anxious to get into more in-depth studies as soon as possible and the flexibility of UAF eCampus allowed that. Higher education while knocking out high school credits, what is there not to like?
