Associate of Applied Science


UAA's College of Business and Public Policy and Mat-Su College have suspended admission to the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Small Business Administration, effective spring 2019. This means that no new applications for the AAS in Small Business are currently being accepted, and that current students will need to complete the program during a "teach-out" period. Prospective students interested in a career in small business should consider applying to the AAS in General Business as the programs are very similar. In addition, many of the courses in the AAS in General Business apply to the Bachelor of Business Administration programs available through UAA. By working closely with an advisor, students pursing the AAS in General Business will be positioned well to complete a bachelor's degree. 

Students currently enrolled in the AAS in Small Business have been notified about how to go about completing the degree or changing their major. Classes in Small Business will continue to be offered through spring 2021 to allow students time to complete the degree.  Students pursuing a degree in small business should meet with an advisor in Student Services to create an academic plan covering the next two years. Please contact Student Services at 907-745-9762 to set up an appointment.
