Kenai River Campus
The Kenai River Campus is a campus of Kenai Peninsula College, which is a unit of the University of Alaska Anchorage.
Perched on the banks of the world famous Kenai River (home of the world-record king salmon), KRC is located between the communities of Kenai and Soldotna. The campus sits on more than 300 wooded acres and includes classrooms, a library, laboratories, computer labs, vocational shops, a media center, a bookstore, an art gallery, a career center, a learning center, a café, commons areas and outdoor walking and trails. The campus will be expanded as a result of two major projects funded by a general obligatioon bond approved by Alaskan voters in Nov. 2010. A new student housing facility and Career and Technical Center are expected to be ready for occupancy in Aug. 2013.
KRC has an enrollment of about 2,200 students a semester. Small classes, individual attention and highly qualified faculty give the campus a private college feel. There are no "typical" students at KRC. All ages, educational backgrounds and ethnicities are represented.
KRC offers many services, including academic advising, transfer information, financial aid assistance, career counseling and free tutoring. The campus also serves students needing Adult Basic Education, GED tutoring and testing, English-as-a-Second Language and Literacy instruction.
UAA and KPC are fully accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges.
