Dear UA Scholar, 

Recognizing the unprecedented impact of Covid-19 on University of Alaska students, the UA Scholars Program will temporarily waive compliance requirements (maintaining a 2.5 GPA, and earning the minimum number of cumulative credits:  24 credits after two paid semesters, 54 credits after four paid semesters, and 84 credits after six paid semesters) through the end of the academic year 2021. Although you will not be penalized for falling below the minimum requirements, we encourage you to do your best to stay on track, complete your academic plan, and pursue academic excellence in your coursework. 

Wishing you well, 
Lael M. Oldmixon
