Step 3: Attend Pre-Departure Orientation at your home campus

Your home campus coordinator will be planning a pre-departure orientation for outbound students and will give you information concerning when and where it will be held.

Step 4: Transfer Credits

When your studies are completed at the host campus you exchange to through UAF, your host transcripts will be sent to UAF and be processed and displayed on your UAF transcript.  Those credits will then be transferred to UAA or UAS, and the credits earned will be treated as transfer credits.
