Those who meet minimum qualifications (2.5 cumulative GPA & on track to graduate) will be selected through a random lottery process. Selected students are required to take the mandatory university placement exams upon admission. Students will be enrolled in pre-selected required cohort classes. They will also choose additional classes from a wide selection of courses at UAF. A district school counselor and a university academic advisor will work together to help students select appropriate classes.

    Applications that are received and approved between August 17, 2023 and December 8, 2023 (lottery closes on Dec. 8) will be waitlisted to attend North Star College starting Spring semester 2024.  Our offices are currently reaching out to those approved from the waitlist to attend Spring semester 2024 as enrollment numbers allow.  Any waitlisted students left on the list will be required to apply again for the next 24-25 school year.


    The 2024-25 North Star College school year lottery opens on Dec. 11, 2023 and closes Feb. 23, 2024. The processing of lottery wait listed applications for approval will begin Feb. 26.  Parents and students of approved applications will be contacted via phone/email starting March 1, 2024. 


    If these deadlines are missed and you are still interested in attending NSC for the 24-25 school year, the waitlist lottery will reopen from March 20, 2024-Aug.16, 2024 and applications will be processed as enrollment allows.
