Fees Explanation 

All fees are approved by the Board of Regents of the University of Alaska Statewide System of Higher Education. The University reserves the right to change or add to its fee assessment and refund policies at any time. Fee assessments are subject to audit and correction, and any adjustments will be made within forty days following the close of late registration or after any change in the student’s schedule. Students will be notified by mail of any adjustment. THESE FEES ARE CHARGED IN ADDITION TO TUITION AND ANY OTHER LAB OR SPECIAL FEES NOTED WITHIN KPC’S COURSE SCHEDULES. The following fees were current as of the Fall 2014 semester:

  • ACCUPLACER Testing Fee: $15 per testing session

This fee is assessed to all undergraduate and graduate students to address the capital reinvestment for university facilities and academic equipment.

Any student who has still not paid all tuition and fees owed by the next published deadline listed in the academic calendar for that semester will have an additional late payment fee of $175 assessed. 
  • Late Registration Fee: There is a specified cut-off date for registration each semester. If students register after that date, they pay a late registration fee of $50. This fee is refundable only if all classes for which they registered are cancelled. Refer to the academic calendar for late registration dates.

Courses with applicable fees less than the lower division credit hour tuition rate ($175 for academic year 2014-2015) will be exempt from the charge. All calculated fees will be rounded to the nearest dollar. The network charge for academic year 2014-2015 will be $5 per credit for lower division and $6 for upper division. This network charge is mandatory for both face-to-face and distance delivered classes.
