Students must apply each year for financial aid. Students should contact the Financial Aid office for a UAS Financial Aid information packet and application materials. Send requests for information to 11066 Auke Lake Way, Juneau, AK 99801–8680, or call (907) 796–6255 or 1-877-465–4827 (toll–free).
Specific procedures are as follows:
- All students must be unconditionally admitted to an eligible degree or certificate program at the University of Alaska Southeast before most types of financial aid can be disbursed (refer to the “Admission” sections of this catalog for information on procedures and deadlines). Graduate and Credential students who are admitted “conditionally” should contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
- All students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), listing the University of Alaska Southeast, code # 001065, in the school section. For the academic year, the FAFSA must be received by the Federal processor by June 30, or by the end of the term in which the student is enrolled, whichever is earlier. Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA early (www.fafsa.gov).
- If requested, students must submit any additional documentation to the Financial Aid Office. The U.S. Department of Education reviews selected financial aid applications to determine that information has been reported accurately and that aid is distributed fairly. The Financial Aid Office verifies information on those selected applications before students can receive financial aid awards. The Financial Aid office may request copies of a number of documents to assist with U.S. Department of Education verifications. Those reviews must be conducted before aid can be disbursed.
- Students who wish to apply for UAS or UA Foundation scholarships may access the application on the Financial Aid Office’s website. Please note that the deadline for most applications for UAS and UA Foundation Scholarships is February 15th preceding the academic year.
- Students who wish to apply for other scholarships may request applications, if available, from the financial aid representative on each campus.
- Students who wish to apply for the Alaska Education Grant and/or the Alaska Performance Scholarship must submit their FAFSA by June 30 in the preceding academic year.
- Students interested in Federal Direct Loans, the Alaska Supplemental Education Loan program or other alternative loan programs are encouraged to apply online (please refer to the Financial Aid Office’s website for information concerning online applications).
- Students who wish to apply for Bureau of Indian Affairs grants or scholarships should contact the BIA or their Regional Native Corporation for applications.
