Alaska State Flag

There are more than a dozen universities and colleges in Alaska, eight of which offer online courses. The University of Alaska is the main public college in Alaska, with campuses in Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau. More often than not, young people leave the state to attend college elsewhere. In order to combat this “brain drain,” the state has instituted the Alaska Scholars Program, which offers partial four-year scholarships to the University of Alaska for the top 10% of high school graduates. In addition, the University of Alaska and a number of the best online colleges in Alaska have made an attempt to reach out to students from all over the state and the nation through a variety of online programs. The University of Alaska at Anchorage offers online courses in subjects such as accounting, computer information systems, education, and health sciences.
