If you’re ready to take the first step to become a college student, the admission office at Mat-Su College is here to help. Whether you’re a first-time freshman, a transfer student, or you just want to take a class for personal fulfillment, contact us for assistance with application requirements, residency, Advanced Placement credits, changing your major, or any questions you may have.  As a community campus of the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), Mat-Su College shares the UA mission of providing open access to higher education for all students.

When to Apply

To be admitted to degree-seeking status in a Mat-Su College degree, certificate, or occupational endorsement, you MUST APPLY BY THE SEMESTER ADD/DROP DEADLINE.

Although we accept applications through the add/drop deadline (end of the second week of the semester) we strongly recommend applying several months before the start of the semester you plan to start college.  Applying early allows sufficient time for processing, placement testing, and advising before registration and helps ensure a successful start to college life.

Admission Policies

The UAA Catalog outlines policies regarding admission requirements and student rights and responsibilities in the admission process. Please review the General Admission Policies and Information section before applying.

Cross-campus Enrollment

If you are pursuing a degree program offered by the Anchorage campus or another UA campus, you do not need to reapply to a Mat-Su College degree program to attend classes at Mat-Su College. Students admitted to other UA campuses are welcome to enroll in classes at Mat-Su College.

International Students

International students will need to apply with the UAA campus in Anchorage.  Please refer to the UAA International Student Services page for more information.
