Step 2: Apply to UAA and Receive Student ID
UAA requires AMCS students to officially apply to the University of Alaska Anchorage which will generate a UAA ID and allow you to enroll in college courses. Also, the university requires completion of the Secondary Student/Parent Authorization form. The generation of your ID number takes 48-72 hours to generate and is shared via the email address you entered on the application. Please view the video at the bottom of the page before starting your application.

While waiting for your ID number, begin studying for the placement test and drafting a response to two short answer questions that you will submit as part of your application. Do not take the tests without refreshing your understanding of concepts.
