Registration Process PDF Print E-mail
Northwest Campus offers registration in local courses, regional courses, distance delivered courses, and online learning courses offered through UAF eCampus.

You must register and pay tuition and fees to enroll in coursework. Registration is held each semester on dates published in the academic calendar. For special programs, short courses, seminars and other classes not part of the regular academic calendar, registration is as needed.

Northwest Campus offers students open enrollment, meaning students do not need to apply for admission to take coursework. The registration process is still done with a single-page, paper form, which can be faxed, emailed, or completed in person. Continuing students can register online once approved by NWC student services staff.

FERPA Explanation & Forms PDF Print E-mail
The University of Alaska Fairbanks Registrar’s Office is responsible for keeping student education records. A complete copy of the university policies regarding access to student records under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is available at

Under FERPA, you are entitled, as a University of Alaska student, to review your education records. Except for directory information, no personally identifiable information is disclosed to agencies outside the university without the written permission of the student or as otherwise permitted under FERPA.

Within the university, records are made available to school officials with a legitimate educational interest. A school official is any individual designated by the university to perform an assigned function on behalf of the university, including faculty, administrators, staff, other students serving on official university committees or assisting a university official in performing his or her duties, and third parties with whom the university has contracted, such as attorneys, auditors and collection agents. School officials have a legitimate educational interest if they need information from a student’s education records to perform work appropriate to their position.

No other information from a student’s education record will be disclosed to anyone outside the university without the written consent of the student except to officials of other institutions in which a student seeks to enroll, in connection with financial aid which the student has applied for or has received, in compliance with a judicial order or subpoena, to persons in an emergency in order to protect the health or safety of the student or other persons, or as otherwise permitted under FERPA.

Directory Information
The university may release certain directory information to the public on a routine basis unless a student requests, in writing, that the university not release it. Forms to request that directory information not be released are available in the Office of the Registrar.
No directory information will be released until the last day of late registration. Any request to withhold directory information will continue until a student provides permission, in writing, for the university to release such. After that, information will be released when appropriate.
The names of students who have requested their directory information be withheld will not appear in the published university chancellor’s and dean’s lists.

The following is considered directory information:
1. Name
2. E-mail address
3. Home city and state
4. Weight and height of students on athletic teams
5. Dates of attendance at UAF
6. Program/major field(s) of study
7. Degrees and certificates received, including dates
8. Participation in officially recognized university activities
9. Academic and co-curricular honors, awards and scholarships received, including dates

Honors and Scholarships
Names of students receiving awards, scholarships or appearing on the dean’s list or chancellor’s list are released to the media unless a student has either requested that directory information not be released or has submitted a written request to the Office of Marketing and Communications not to release honors information by five working days after the end of the semester in which the honors were earned.

(taken from UAF 2008-2009 Catalog)

Additionally, the UAF Registrar's Office now has two FERPA-related forms on their website.

1) The Request to Withhold or Release Directory Information (PDF 84K) is an enterable PDF form that students can use if they want to have their directory information not disclosed or if they want to release the hold so that their directory information is public.

2) The FERPA Release Form (PDF 92K) is a form that needs to be printed out and filled in by the student if the student wants another person (spouse, parent, guardian, etc.) allowed access to all of the student's records, like academic history or account balances.

Third Party Billing PDF Print E-mail

General Information
UAF students who are sponsored by a company, local, state, federal or international governmental agency or a branch of the US military may be eligible to have all or a portion of their bills sent directly to the sponsor. We must have a letter of authorization or purchase order on file for each student before the award can be processed. Once processed and a bill is generated, payment by the sponsor is due upon receipt.

The charges paid by the sponsor can vary – some will pay tuition and mandatory fees, others will also pay for parking, housing, dining or other charges. The student is responsible for paying any charges not authorized by the agency by the fee payment deadline to avoid the application of late fees to his/her account.

Billing Procedures
There is no standard form for an agency to complete as each agency is different in the information they require to be billed correctly. As a result, some companies will write a letter, on business letterhead, stating what they are willing to pay. Others have a specific form their agency requires. Regardless of the format, all contracts or letters MUST include the following information in order to be processed:
  • the student’s Name
  • specific charges to be covered (i.e. tuition, fees, room and board, etc)
  • date the award applies to (i.e. fall only, spring only, fall and spring)
  • agency/sponsor name and contact person
  • agency/sponsor mailing address
  • agency/sponsor phone number
  • agency/sponsor fax number
  • purchase order number (for government contracts)
Agencies must submit the contract or letter authorizing payment to Sue Luke, Business Office Manager, NWC Business Office:
  • Fax: 907.443.5602
  • Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
  • In person: Business Office, Main Building
  • Mail: NWC Business Office
    Attention: Sue Luke
    P.O. Box 400
    Nome, AK 99762
Billing authorizations must be received by the published fee payment deadline in the academic calendar.

Note: A credit will usually appear on the student account within 48 hours of receipt of the contract. This credit does not mean that the Business Office has received payment from the third party – it means authorization has been received. If the agency/sponsor does not pay the entire tuition and fee cost, the student must pay the remaining balance before the fee payment deadline in order to avoid a late payment charge. Authorizations received AFTER the fee payment deadline are subject to late fees and will be the responsibility of the student. Late fees applied according to this policy will not be waived.

Payment Information

Payments are to be made by the agency upon receipt of billing notice. If payment is not received before the next semester begins, the credits will be reversed on the student’s account and he/she will be billed for the unpaid amount (including any applicable late fees). Any charges that are not paid by the sponsor are billed directly to the student.

Payments can be made in the form of a check, credit card or an electronic funds transfer.

Check – Make checks payable to the University of Alaska Fairbanks. To ensure that check payments are applied correctly and to avoid the student receiving duplicate credit, reference the INVOICE NUMBER or the student ID number. Checks should be mailed to the address above.
