Sitka Start

education_roadsign2US News reports: “As many as one in three first-year students doesn’t make it back for sophomore year. Reasons run the gamut from family problems and loneliness to academic struggles and a lack of money. “ So consider doing that critical first year right here in Sitka. Attend class with a cohort of your friends. Save money. Build confidence. Develop good study habits. And then transfer to the college of your choice with a high GPA, no debt, a clear sense of direction… and belief in yourself.

At the University of Alaska Southeast, Sitka Campus, we focus on these ingredients of student success:

  • Full academic accreditation … our credits for GER courses are accepted at most colleges.
  • Excellent professors who care, AND have time for you.
  • Outstanding academic advisors.
  • Free tutoring, plus excellent study opportunities with friends who are taking the same classes.
  • Much lower costs. At less than $5000 per year*, our tuition costs a fraction of most other schools. It is very possible to attend Sitka Campus without debt.

How Sitka Start Works
