Transfer students are given class standing based on the number of transfer credits accepted by UAF. Nondegree students are registered without class standing.

Students who are in a postbaccalaureate teacher certification program only have a class standing of "postbaccalaureate."

Graduate Students

Students are given the class standing of “graduate” only after being officially admitted to a graduate degree or certificate program.
