UAF School of Management to Waive Application Fees
The University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Management will pay the $50 undergraduate and $75 graduate UAF college application fees for all applicants to its affiliated degree programs. This offer, effective immediately, will extend into the foreseeable future.
Mark Herrmann, the School of Management’s dean, noted that application fees can present a sizable expense for students who apply to multiple colleges. He does not want to see that financial burden placed on potential School of Management students.
For the fall 2018 semester, the school elected to pay the fee for students applying to its bachelor’s degree programs in applied management, security and emergency management, and sport and recreation business, as well as its master’s degree program in security and disaster management. This policy has now been expanded to cover all degrees within the school’s accounting and finance, applied management, business administration, homeland security and emergency management, and sport and recreation business programs, including graduate degrees and online degrees.

The Corporate 100
Alaska Business has been celebrating the corporations that have a significant impact on Alaska’s economy since 1993. At the time, the corporations weren’t ranked as the list didn’t have specific ranking criteria. Instead, the Alaska Business editorial team held long, detailed, and occasionally passionate discussions about which organizations around the state were providing jobs, owned or leased property, used local vendors, demonstrated a high level of community engagement, and in general enriched Alaska.
