UAFS Promise

Lock in your tuition for up to four years and graduate on time by signing up for the UAFS Promise program. First-time entering students who enroll in the UAFS Promise will have their tuition rate locked in at the same rate they enjoyed during their freshman year. Learn more by visiting with your admissions or academic advisor.


The UAFS Promise is a fixed tuition program for first-time entering students. Through this program these students are guaranteed a single tuition rate for a maximum of four years of attendance, provided they remain on track to graduate according to their degree plan and maintain eligibility to enroll at UAFS.

You are "on track to graduate" when you meet the requirements of the degree plan of your chosen bachelor's or associate degree. Most bachelor's degrees require four years of coursework to graduate, and, though there are exceptions, most associate degrees require two years of coursework. You must remain on track to graduate within the designated time frame of your degree plan based on your starting term. 

Only first-time entering students are eligible to enroll in the UAFS Promise.

You can sign up for the UAFS Promise during your initial advising appointment during your MANE Event New Student Orientation. 

Yes. Undeclared majors are eligible to apply for the UAFS Promise. You must declare your major before the conclusion of your second primary (Fall or Spring) semester of attendance at UAFS. 

If you choose to change your major, you are still eligible for the UAFS Promise if you remain on track to graduate within the designated timeframe of your new degree (i.e. within four years of your cohort term if you are seeking a bachelor's degree). UAFS Promise participants should always consult with their academic advisor before changing majors. If you are moving from an associate to a bachelor's degree, you remain eligible for the UAFS Promise as long as you remain on track for graduation within the designed timeframe. 

Credit hours earned during high school that apply toward your degree plan do not negatively affect your timeline. Concurrent credit should be included in your progression toward your degree. The hours do not prorate the number of eligible semesters you have to participate in the UAFS Promise.

No, fees are not included in the UAFS Promise program and are subject to change each year.

No, your participation in this program does not affect your scholarship or financial aid eligibility.
