The Anchorage Senior College (ASC) of the University of Alaska, Anchorage was established by the University of Alaska Board of Regents in 1970. The offices were located in buildings on the newly constructed ACC campus on Providence Drive near Lake Otis Parkway. Later, the UAA/ASC was housed in the Consortium Library (which served UAA and Alaska Methodist University) when construction of that facility was completed in 1973. The first campus facility for the ASC, the current CAS building, was completed in 1974. UAA achieved full accreditation from the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges in 1974. In the early 1970s, the University of Alaska, Anchorage was composed of ACC and ASC. The relationship between the institutions was modified in the late 1970s when ACC and UAA became separate entities.
The Anchorage Senior College administered the upper division and graduate program courses leading to baccalaureate and masters degrees in the Anchorage area.
