KPC represented at 2014 Soldotna Progress Days Parade

KPC celebrates 50th anniversary

On July 1, 2014, staff and faculty at KPC's Kenai River Campus raised KPC Founding Director Clayton Brockel's U.S. Flag (that was given to Brockel when he was discharged from the army on Aug. 2, 1946) to commemorate KPC's July 1, 1964 founding and in memory of Director Brockel. The flag was lowered on July 2 and placed in the KPC time capsule with instructions for the flag to be flown again on July 1, 2064.

Welcome to KPC!
KPC's Kenai River Campus is located in Soldotna on the banks of the Kenai River on more than 300 wooded acres and with an enrollment of over 2,000 students each semester, students will find a real sense of community on the campus. Small classes, individual attention and highly qualified faculty give the campus a private college feel! Come by and register for classes today.
Announcements
  • The Kenai Peninsula Borough assembly passed an ordinance on Oct. 28 to appropriate $463,100 from a state grant that will go toward extending an existing lighted paved path from Kalifornsky Beach Road to Kenai Peninsula College’s Kenai River Campus. The lighted path will extend .04 miles from Kalifornsky Beach Elementary School to Poppy Ridge Road. The lighted path will alleviate some of the safety concerns of students’ walking along the dark roadway, especially in the winter months. The next step in the project will be for the borough to draft a Memorandum of Agreement with the Alaska Department of Transportation and then scoping and design of the project will begin. A timetable for the project has not yet been determined.
  • It's time for students (admitted into degree or certificate programs) to plan for next semester and be ready to register for classes on the day (at 12:01 a.m.) they're eligible. KPC's enrollment continues to rise and competition for class seats is high. Veteran students will be given the first priority period and can walk in and register on Nov. 7. The remainder of priority registration is staggered according to class standing, with seniors (90+ credits) registering beginning on Nov. 10, juniors (60-89 credits) on Nov. 11, sophomores (30-59 credits) on Nov. 12, freshmen (0-29 credits) on Nov. 13. Beginning the following week on Nov. 17, students with pending spring admission applications can begin registering. The general public can register online at 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 24. Students are encouraged to seek advising to be sure they are on course for graduation in the least amount of time possible.
  • KPC community, please note that a newly instituted facilities fee of $2 per credit will become active in the spring 2015 semester. The fee will increase to $4 per credit in fall 2015 and $6 per credit in spring 2016. To learn more about this fee, please view this document.
