Student & Graduate Reviews

Gillian McGee - 11/5/2016
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020
"I have loved most of the teachers I have had so far, they have all been more than willing to go the distance to further my education. They take extra time out of their week to make sure students understand the material they teach and I feel as if they honestly care about the people they teach. I enjoy going to class but I'm hardly challenged. I find the work easy but also needed."

"UAA was affordable as an Alaska Resident, and I felt that I was getting a quality education. The campus is beautiful. I learned a lot and would recommend it to others"

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2011
"It did not prepare me for the real world. The criminal justice classes taught me very little about the justice process and all the paperwork involved. I learned everything I needed to know from on the job training."

"The professors and classes were good. Location of campus is convenient to drive to, although it is spread out so walking between classes can be a pain. The library is excellent."

Chewie - 9/4/2015
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2011
"Having smaller class sizes with personal relationships with instructors made UAA an attractive school on par with those with more prestige. In addition, the potential for outdoor activities in Alaska, in a pristine environment, abound."

"The Alaska schools (at least UAA & UAF) are not great in my opinion as far as administrative and gen eds, but the Geomatics program at UAA was quite good. They have some 5 faculty and I would happily recommend the program to anyone considering it."

Tiana - 3/16/2015
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015
"I started taking classes through the Mat-Su community college (now a branch of UAA) back when I was 15 for random classes to help me figure out what degree I wanted to take after High School. I have been taking classes (Online and on campus) at the Anchorage branch ever since (Minus a brief stint at University of Idaho) and while I withdrew from the pre-nursing program because I decided to go in a different direction, I always found this school to be willing to bend over backwards to help with any issues I was having and the classes were also very in depth. In state tuition is also very reasonable, out of state tuition however... is ridiculous."

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2015
"I am attending the University of Alaska Anchorage for a Bachelors in Construcion Project Management. I already work and the industry and I am finding myself dissatisfied with the curriculum offered at the biggest university in our state. So I decided to look into ITT Tech since it is the only other school that offers the degree up in AK (strange, since construction is and has been a booming industry up here for the last 20 years +). Honestly, I'm sad to see all the reviews from people that have attended ITT Tech on the difficulty finding jobs and deficient education. At the same time, I'm disheartened that as I attend a real university the education is just as lacking.... No wonder no one in this generation is moving forward. The false advertising by educational institutes is absurd. For the cost we pay in tuition (and made up ridiculous fees), these institutions should be held to a higher standard and be responsible for provindig students with a worthwhile education..."
