Receiving Credit

Access to courses at your host campus is based on offerings and availability and cannot be guaranteed. You must meet all prerequisites and co-requisites as required by your host campus.

Students participating in an NSE, international/north2north exchange or study abroad program approved by the UAF Study Away office will receive UAF resident credit for all transcripted coursework completed while away.  Our must receive an official transcript from the student's host university or institution, directly from the host institution or program provider (not from the student).  Information about credit and grade conversions specific to the student's host university/institution will be provided upon request.

ALL CREDITS that appear on a host transcript must appear on your UAF records. All information on your official host campus transcript, including classes, grades, audits, withdrawals, failures, and credit hours, will be recorded on your UAF academic record, and all host campus grades will be calculated into your UAF GPA.

It is the student's responsibility to submit the proper approvals for credit evaluation. We highly suggest going through this process before you start your program to ensure classes will count towards your degree-progress as you intend.  If we do not receive signatures for all classes after 1 year from your final semester away, credit evaluation will be at the determination of UAF.

We have developed an information sheet for advisors and departments regarding this process: Study Away Course Approvals Overview.pdf
