Admission process for an interdisciplinary studies major with a general studies concentration

  1. Contact the office of Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Studies at 907-474-6396 or 888-823-8780 to make an initial appointment with a degree completion advisor.
  2. If you are not currently a UAF student, are attending as a non-degree student or are enrolled in an associate or certificate program, you need to apply for admission to a bachelor’s degree with the UAF Office of Admissions. If you are currently active in a bachelor's degree program at UAF, you do not need to reapply for admission and can skip this step. New transfer students must have official transcripts from all previous colleges sent to UAF’s Office of Admissions.
  3. Submit a General Studies concentration application form. The interdisciplinary studies major with a general studies concentration is intended for students who have 100 or more college credits but are not close to graduating or have obstacles preventing them from graduating with a particular major.
  4. Your responses on the application form will be reviewed by a degree completion advisor, the director of the Academic Advising Center, the director of Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Studies and the UAF vice provost for admission to the major.
  5. Once admitted to the interdisciplinary studies major, you will be notified by email, and your Degree Works will be updated to show your degree requirements.
  6. You will continue to work with a degree completion academic advisor on your path to graduation.
