Alaska

Alaska is known for its stunning scenery, harsh climate, and for being the largest state of the Union. But despite its physical size, Alaska only has about a dozen colleges and universities to choose from, including the University of Alaska and its affiliates. However, that doesn’t mean there are no educational opportunities available. Even students in Barrow, the ninth northernmost city in the world, have access to Ilisagvik College, a public two-year institution. The state’s schools are overseen by the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education (ACPE), which is funded by the Alaska Student Loan Corporation (ASLC). The commission works to provide education planning tools and resources, programs that promote the importance of preparing for higher education success, advocacy for postsecondary participation, and financial aid, according its website.
