Students who wish to transfer college-level coursework from foreign institutions must submit official transcripts and English translations (if necessary) as well as an official statement of educational equivalency from a recommended international credentials evaluation service. Lists of such services may be obtained from the International Student Advisor in Enrollment Services on the UAA campus in Anchorage, 907-786-1573, or contact Diane Taylor in the Learning Center at KRC at 262-0328. Fees depend upon the type and complexity of the evaluation.
International students (F-1) who wish to apply for the United States Department of Justice, Immigration, and Naturalization Services Certificate of Eligibility for Non-Immigrant Students (Form I-20A) should contact the UAA International Student Services office (www.uaa.alaska.edu/international-student-services/) at 907-786-1573. To be issued an I-20A, international students must be formally admitted, full-time, degree-seeking students, even if their major is undeclared. Contact the Admissions and Records office for details. These requirements apply only to students who are requesting a Form I-20A Student Visa. Other international students may enroll under the Open Enrollment or Formal Admissions policy. Health insurance is mandatory for international students on student visas.
