Rural Student Services:
Rural Student Services (RSS) is an academic advising department with 40 years of experience in working with students from all over the state of Alaska. We are here to assist you in achieving student success by linking you to current information pertinent to your education, lifestyle, and goals. RSS is known for its welcoming and friendly environment. Many students find a meaningful connection at UAF through RSS.
Rural Student Services began in 1969 and was previously called Student Orientation Services. Students lobbied for a program that could assist Native students of the University of Alaska Fairbanks community. As a result, the 1969 Alaska State Legislature passed House Concurrent Resolution No. 56 and requested that the Board of Regents of the University of Alaska institute a comprehensive plan to provide services to Alaska Native students whose goal was to receive a college education.
