About the CTC Tuition Waiver Program
The Community & Technical College (CTC) awards a limited number of tuition waivers each year in support of student success.

The CTC tuition waiver program adheres to all applicable policies and guidelines of the University of Alaska Board of Regents and UAA Office of Student Financial Assistance. As financial aid awards, tuition waivers are coordinated with university-administered student financial aid packages.
Tuition waivers may affect the level of other financial aid you may receive. Please notify the UAA Office of Financial Assistance once you are aware you will be receiving a tuition waiver. Students with tuition waivers must submit completed waiver forms and pay additional fees by the applicable payment deadline. Financial holds on your student account may cause scholarship checks and refund checks to be held up. For additional information about UAA financial aid policies that may apply to CTC tuition waiver recipients, refer to the UAA Financial Aid policies website or Chapter Four of the UAA 2013-14 Catalog.
