Why Summer?

Welcome to summer!

Summer Sessions at UAF offers you the opportunity to move ahead in your degree, explore interests, and enjoy free movies, lectures and concerts during our beautiful summer months. Consider these benefits:

Small Class Sizes

On average, Summer Sessions classes have 20 students or less. As a result, students engage more often and more deeply with their professors and classmates, leading to a rich learning experience. Free study help is available for math, speech and writing.

Flexible Schedule

The Summer Session schedule includes two six-week sessions, a full 12-week session and multiple short courses offered throughout the summer. Courses meet throughout the day, into the evening and on weekends. Choose the session or combination of courses that best fits your schedule.

Financial Benefits

Everyone pays in-state tuition during Summer Sessions and there are scholarships and tuition awards exclusively for students taking Summer Sessions courses.

Focused Learning

You can schedule your summer to focus your attention on one or two courses at a time. Immerse yourself in a topic you love or concentrate your efforts on a challenging course.
