UA Board of Regents policy waives regular tuition for Alaska residents who have reached age 65 years or older. Residents are eligible to utilize the Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver and enroll in UAS courses if:

  • they are a permanent resident of Alaska;
  • they are age 65 or older prior to the first day of the semester;
  • there is space available for the class or classes you want (i.e., no waitlist)
  • Senior citizens using the Alaska senior tuition waiver may register on or after the first day of semester course instruction. 

Senior citizens who register prior to the first day of semester instruction are not eligible to receive the tuition waiver.  Students using senior tuition waivers must meet both the age and residency requirements on or before the first day of instruction.  Reimbursements will not be made to senior citizens who pay for a course and then request a waiver.  Nor will tuition waivers be granted if senior citizen students register early, drop and later re–add the class to take advantage of the waiver. The waiver is for tuition only and does not cover tuition surcharges, lab or course materials fees, the 4% network charge, or campus consolidated fees.  Community Education, Sponsored, and Self-Support courses that do not incur published tuition or are self-support in nature are not eligible for senior tuition waivers.

Employee Tuition Waiver

Employees must be actively employed in a benefit eligible position on or before the first day of course instruction.  Tuition waivers pay only for tuition, the employee is responsible for all other fees. Tuition waiver forms must be turned in by the semester fee payment deadline. Employees who pay for a course and later become eligible for a waiver will not be reimbursed. Payment deadlines and late fees apply. More information and request forms are available on the Bursar's Office website.

Please submit waivers well in advance of the last day of registration to the UAS Office of the Bursar and Student Accounts, Novatney #215, 11066 Auke Lake Way, Juneau, AK 99801 or
