Don’t Miss Out on the Ideal Schedule

June 23, 2021

What is your ideal schedule for College Classes? Do you like to start early to free up your afternoons and evenings? Or, is anything before noon a bad idea?  All jokes aside, everyone learns differently and needs to balance their classes with the rest of their life.

The 2021 Fall Course Catalog is out and you can sign up at UAOnline. If you sign up for your fall classes now, you can pick the schedule that best suits your life and learning habits. You will also be able to build breaks in your day for lunch and studying.

There are more benefits to registering early. If you have a favorite professor, signing up early also helps make sure you will be able to get in their class before it fills up. Also, according to MSC Advisor Taylor Henry, “By registering now, you don't have to worry about confirming your schedule the week before classes start. You can also look up textbook information now and buy/rent the specific materials needed for your classes.”

If you need help identifying the classes you need to take for your degree or certificate program, our academic advisors are here to help. You can set up an advising appointment by calling 907-745-9762 or click here to sign up online.

Financial Aid Workshops

June 23, 2021

The Mat-Su College is on a mission to dispel the myths that surround the cost of higher education. Join us for a complete walkthrough of the entire financial aid process.

  • The FAFSA application,
  • Scholarships,
  • Student loans,
  • FAFSA Myths,
  • Troubleshooting financial aid problems,
  • And, More!

The Financial Aid Workshops will be held between now and September 30th. Workshops will include a PowerPoint presentation with Financial Aid Advisor Darla Budde. She says, "I always look forward to my workshops because I never know who is going to show up! I also just love to see a student’s face when they learn more about financial aid, because often they have misconceptions and end up leaving the workshop feeling much more positive than when we started!"

Students will be able to ask questions afterwards.

To sign up for this free opportunity, call 907-745-9762 or use this link to sign up online.
