As students attending a community campus of the University of Alaska Anchorage, Mat-Su College students are afforded the same rights and responsibilities as any member of the University community.  These rights, freedoms, and responsibilities are explained in the Fact Finder Student Handbook (see links below) and on the Dean of Students page of the UAA website.  As stated in the Fact Finder Handbook, “All members of the University community have a responsibility to protect and maintain an academic climate in which the freedom to learn is enjoyed by all. To this end, certain basic regulations and policies have been developed to govern the behavior of students as members of the University community.”

For questions on student rights, freedoms, and responsibilities, contact Student Services or the Office of Academic Affairs at Mat-Su College.
