In addition to tuition, any course may use materials, supplies, or services that necessitate an additional fee. Non-course fees fund student-centered services and programs that support students' academic and social integration into the UAA community, engage students in active learning and foster the growth and development of each student. Fees may also be charged for administrative and/or instructional services. Resident and non-resident tuition rates and student activity fees are approved by the Board of Regents of the University of Alaska. The university reserves the right to change tuition rates or fees at any time. Fees will vary at community campuses.

Administrative Fee

An administrative fee is a fee charged instead of tuition. Other fees may be assessed for the course such as lab or material fees in addition to the administrative fee.

Audit Fee

Auditors pay the same tuition and fees as students registering for credit.

Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Fee

This fee varies. It is charged per continuing education unit instead of tuition.

Continuous Registration Fee

Continuous registration is expected of graduate students. (See Graduate Programs for more information.)

Course Fees

Course fees are specific to particular courses and meet expenses beyond those normally covered by tuition. UAOnline identifies courses for which fees are charged and their purpose: lab fee, materials fee, learner services fee or special fee. Fee amounts vary.

Nontraditional Credit Fee

UAA awards academic credit for a range of prior learning. There is a nonrefundable administrative fee of $25.00 per credit. Examples include credit for prerequisite not taken, certified experience credit, local credit by examination or portfolio, or credit for articulated high school Career and Technical Education courses. Each instance has a cap of $150.00, regardless of the number of credits awarded. Some forms of nontraditional credit, such as for national examinations like AP or IB, typically do not have a fee.

Consolidated Student Fee

Mandatory student fees contribute to a well-rounded student education and every student is unique in their interests and needs while attending college. The philosophy behind mandatory student fees is that they support valuable functions of the University to promote the common good of the campus community, improve the quality of campus life, and enhance the University's educational mission outside the classroom. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the services being provided by the Consolidated Fee, which include: recreational use of the fitness facilities in the Seawolf Sports Complex, reduced ticket prices to musicians and comedians, free office visits at the Student Health and Counseling Center, opportunities to participate in and be represented by student government, free or reduced admission to athletic events, use of ePortfolio software, sustainability initiatives, student radio station KRUA 88.1 FM, The Northern Light student newspaper, Call Team safety escorts, Seawolf shuttle service, and U-Pass municipal bus programs. The University of Alaska Board of Regents establishes that the payment of these fees is mandatory.

Facility Fee

The facility fee supports the capital reinvestment for university facilities and academic equipment. Capital reinvestment funds construction that modernizes university classrooms, laboratories, residence halls and other buildings so that students have access to learning and living facilities that enhance the academic experience.

Late Payment Fees

A $125 fee will be assessed on all accounts that are not paid by the payment deadline. An additional $175 fee will be assessed on all accounts that are not paid prior to the published second late fee assessment date. Students who pay for or drop their courses prior to the published deadline will not be required to pay these fees.

Network Charge

The network charge covers rapidly rising costs of the university-wide infrastructure. The network charge helps offset part of the cost for maintaining and enhancing the system network that connects all UA campuses to each other and to the Lower 48 and allows for Internet and research network access. Half of the fee goes to the UA statewide system for the operation of common networks and half remains at UAA to address local campus network and student access needs. The network charge will be applied on a course-by-course basis to tuition, non-resident surcharges if applicable, and fees in lieu of tuition for credit and noncredit courses. Courses with applicable fees in lieu of tuition less than the lower division credit hour tuition rate will be exempt from the charge. All calculated fees will be rounded to the nearest dollar. The minimum network charge per course will be $3.

Noncredit Course Fee

Noncredit courses are numbered A001–A049. These courses do not meet degree requirements and may have fees other than regular tuition. Such fees are listed in the class listing as special fees.

Parking Permits

All areas on campus except those designated as visitor parking require an appropriately displayed parking permit. Permits may be purchased online on the permit store's website or from the UAA Parking Office at any time throughout the semester. The UAA Parking Office is located in the Eugene Short Hall. Permit fees are nonrefundable. For further details, call the Parking Office at (907) 786-1119 or visit the UAA Parking Office website.

Placement Test Fee

This fee is for testing for course placement.

Self-Support Fee

Fee for a course that is funded entirely through the revenues collected when students sign up for that specific course. Costs vary by course and may include salaries, supplies, advertising, facilities and travel. Separate refund policies apply.

Transcript Fee

A per-copy fee is charged for routine or rush processing and must be paid in advance.
