Iḷisaġvik College is pleased to announce that Iñupiaq language courses will be offered free of tuition beginning the Spring 2020 semester. This amounts to $495 in savings for each student enrolling in Iñupiaq language course, a reduction from the total previous cost of $605 and the removal of a significant barrier to accessing language knowledge and instruction.

Waiving tuition for the course is distinctive from the Alaska Native/Native American Tuition Waiver offered by Iḷisaġvik College, which requires that each student apply for at least one scholarship to qualify and after the first waiver, requires students to be enrolled in a program. Waiving tuition for the course further opens access to non-degree, non-program seeking community members seeking to further language ability.
