North Star College
All FNSBSD current juniors on track for 2022 graduation, who have an interest in pursuing college coursework in their senior year, are invited to apply to North Star College. North Star College is a middle college partnership between FNSBSD & UAF. Participating students will have the opportunity to earn 7 - 15 transcripted-college credits that apply to district graduation requirements!
Courses will begin in Fall 2021. Earning college credits, through North Star College, will be free for students (although some miscellaneous fees may apply). Students will remain eligible for student activities at their home school. District transportation will be available!
The minimum GPA is 2.5 for acceptance into North Star College. Those who meet the qualifications will be selected through a random lottery process. Students who are selected are required to take university placement exams upon admission. They will be enrolled in pre-selected cohort classes, and choose additional classes from a wide selection of courses at UAF. Courses will be selected in conjunction with a district school counselor and a university academic advisor.
The application window for the 2021-22 school year closed February 26, 2021, at 3:00 pm.
