Individuals considering a bachelor’s or master’s degree at the University of Guam have until the end of day on Friday to apply for the spring, or Fañomnåkan 2022, semester. Additionally, early registration for courses is open to all continuing and returning students except freshmen, who can register starting Wednesday. 

The university offers 25 four-year undergraduate programs, including business administration, nursing, biology, and civil engineering. At the master’s level, the university offers 15 two-year programs, including public administration, sustainable agriculture, counseling, and a variety of education programs. 

“As we enter another academic semester in the midst of a global pandemic, we continue to be reminded that this is perhaps the most critical time to pursue higher education, invest in your future, and expand your opportunities for a successful career,” said Anita Borja Enriquez, senior vice president and provost, who oversees academics. 

A student can attend the University of Guam full-time (12 credits per semester) for $5,300 per academic year, whereas out-of-state tuition at the most affordable public colleges averages $8,100, according to the “15 Colleges With Affordable Out-of-State Tuition” published by U.S. News and World Report in September. 

There are also many avenues for students to find financial support, including federal grants, local government grants, work-study opportunities, and a plethora of scholarships.
