UA President Johnsen confirms continued tuition reductions for select occupational endorsement certificates

Three correction officers with the word correctionPresident Johnsen has made the following announcement, "Until further notice, it is my intent to continue the 25 percent tuition reduction to tuition for courses in selected occupational endorsement and career and technical education (CTE) programs. The discount will apply to more than 300 courses in 50 programs. I continue to believe that part of the reason Alaska has such a low post-secondary going rate is tied to our relative high tuition for community campus programs. This tuition reduction is intended to mitigate this barrier to entry."

The programs that this tuition rate affects at KPC is the corrections occupational endorsement certificate.

President Johnsen has also announced that he will not make a decision on increasing tuition rates for 2021-22 until he can meet with students in September and make a recommendation to the Board of Regents in November.
