Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver
The University of Alaska Board of Regents has approved a waiver of tuition only for Alaska residents 66 years or the age of full social security benefits. A resident is any person who has been physically present in Alaska for one year, excepting only vacations or other absence for temporary purposes with the intent to return. Such students may receive tuition waivers to enroll in any class offered by UAS for which they are qualified except those in which maximum enrollment capacity has been met. Self-support and Community Education classes are not eligible for senior tuition waivers.
Senior citizens using tuition waivers must register on or after the first day of the semester for semester-based classes, or on or after the first day of the class for non semester-based classes. Senior citizens who register before these times are not eligible for the tuition waiver. Also, senior citizens who paid normal tuition to register early will not be allowed to drop and later re–add the class to take advantage of the waiver. The waiver is for tuition only and does not cover the Campus Consolidated Fee and Network Charge.
