Be sure to check the WES website and follow their directions carefully as WES will not process documents not sent in the manner required.

  • Student creates account with WES
  • Choose ICAP Course-by-Course evaluation for all college/university transcripts
  • For high school transcripts choose an ICAP Document-by-Document evaluation
  • Add UAA as a recipient when creating your WES account.
  • Student completes Academic Records Request Form (found on WES website under “Documents Required”) and sends to educational institution(s)
  • Educational institution(s) sends the documents to WES
  • WES sends completed evaluation electronically to UAA (as long as you choose UAA as a recipient)
  • Once WES receives the documents and has verified their authenticity UAA should have the results in three to four weeks.
  • If you have completed the equivalent of 24 or more U.S. college credits with a grade of C or better (as reported by WES) you do not need to have your high school transcript evaluated.

To receive an I-20 you must have been admitted to UAA and provided the Office of International Student Services (ISS) with adequate proof of funding. The documentation that must be submitted includes a bank statement showing the amount specified on the cost to attend page, along with a copy of the Affidavit of Financial Support, found on the Forms Page, signed by the owner of the bank statement.

You must show that you have the ability to fund yourself for a minimum of one year while attending UAA. This includes tuition and fees, lodging and meals, and everyday expenses including health insurance.
International Students are not eligible for Financial Aid and must personally secure their own funding.

For All Students

Standardized test scores are not used in the admission decision; however, placement tests are used for math and writing course level placement.

  • Accuplacer is UAA’s computerized placement test to assess your skills in Writing. Alternatively, students may be placed into writing courses based upon an ACT or SAT score, or through assessment of a writing sample.
  • ALEKS is UAA’s computerized placement test to assess your skills in Mathematics. Students are advised to register for Mathematics and Statistics courses at the level indicated by their ALEKS scores.
