Kenai Peninsula College System
KPC and the cities of Kenai, Soldotna, Seward and Homer are located on the beautiful Kenai Peninsula in south-central Alaska and are bordered by the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska Maritime Wildlife Refuge, Kachemak Bay State Park and Resurrection and Kachemak Bays. There are many recreational opportunities for outdoor recreation, including hiking, canoeing, cross country skiing, river and ocean fishing and wildlife viewing. Despite its northern latitude, the Kenai Peninsula has surprisingly mild winters and cool, comfortable summers. At both campuses (Soldotna and Homer), full-time and adjunct faculty teach courses parallel to the first two years of four-year college work as well as courses leading to occupational certificates and associate degrees. Some course work leading to baccalaureate degrees is also available. Continuing education courses are also offered. Academic advising, transfer information, financial aid, career counseling, and tutoring are provided. Students interested in pursuing degrees or certificates are encouraged to meet with an advisor before registration. Adults wishing to improve basic English and math skills may do so through the Adult Basic Education program. GED tutoring and testing and English as a Second Language are also available.
