UA degrees at KPC
KPC offers courses that lead to completion or near completion of several degrees offered by other campuses of the University of Alaska. As a community campus of UAA, KPC is able to support these program offerings based on student interest and adequate enrollment. It is very important to consult with an advisor to plan a program.
Bachelor programs and Associate programs offered through other UA campuses require students to complete admission and graduation applications through the campus that offers the degree, and will be subject to the admission and graduation application deadlines of that campus.
Consult with a KPC advisor for suggested course sequencing and to be sure all requirements are being met.
