Spring 2010 tuition waiver

The University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center will be offering a limited number of Tuition Waivers for the 2009-2010 Academic Year. Currently, we are accepting Tuition Waiver applications for the Spring 2010 semester.

Justice Center tuition waivers are awarded to recognize the student(s) who best represents those qualities we would most like to encourage in our students. These qualities include academic excellence and a willingness and ability to contribute to the field of justice and the program at UAA. Consideration may also be given to student financial need and affirmative action goals. Note: There are a limited number of tuition waiver credits awarded each academic year. Awarded tuition waiver credits may not cover 100% of tuition costs.


The eligible student must be an official justice major or officially admitted to the paralegal certificate program with a cumulative grade point average of 2.8 or higher and have completed a minimum of 12 credits in the justice major or paralegal program.


Justice Center tuition waiver applications can be picked up in the Justice Center office (LIB 213) or an application can be filled out and printed online.

Also attach a typewritten statement in which you explain why you feel you should be granted this tuition waiver. Your statement should include such things as quality classroom participation or presentations, research projects, internships, special projects, Justice Club and/or Alpha Phi Sigma activities, Student Showcase participation, and nature of your need if applicable. You may also present indicators of contributions to the Justice field and community and any other information about yourself which you feel supports your request for the tuition waiver.

Application deadline

All applications must be submitted to the Justice Center office no later than 5:00pm on Tuesday, January 19, 2010. Students who have been selected to receive a Spring 2010 tuition waiver, will be contacted by Friday, January 22, 2010. Justice Center hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm, unless otherwise posted.
