Resident credit at UAA is credit that is earned in formal classroom instruction, e-learning courses, directed study, independent study or research through any unit of UAA. Credit from an institutionally accredited domestic institution or equivalent institution for which there is an approved affiliation or exchange agreement is also considered resident credit.

In general, credit earned at UAF or UAS is not considered resident credit at UAA. However, if a program is delivered collaboratively with UAF and/or UAS, collaborative program credit from each participating institution is counted toward fulfillment of residency requirements.

Transfer credit, nontraditional credit, military service credit and credit granted through nationally prepared examinations are not considered resident credit, nor are local credit by examination credits earned through locally prepared tests.
