Kenai Peninsula College: Around Campus

Late registration: Still time to sign up for spring classes

Posted: Wednesday, January 12, 2005

Kenai Peninsula College just finished up general walk-in registration last week, but that doesn't mean college is out of the question for the spring semester. In fact, late registration is designed to give Alaskans who are unable to attend walk-in registration a week to drop by the campus and sign up for classes. Students can continue to register for classes, Monday through Friday during business hours.

There is a $5 fee that's associated with late registration process, but the EZ Tuition Payment Plan still is available for anyone who would like to take advantage of it. The plan allows students to pay for tuition and fees in three payments; 1/3 down at registration, 1/3 due 30 days into the semester, and the final 1/3 due 90 days into the semester or by the end of the semester whichever comes first, all with zero percent interest. This plan allows students to begin their semester without emptying their bank accounts.

Students are encouraged to register as soon as possible to ensure they get into the classes they want. Classes that meet general degree requirements tend to fill up rapidly. For more information about late registration or to have any KPC question answered, call campus services at 262-0330 (toll free 877-262-0330) or e-mail iyinfo@uaa.alaska.edu.

For those in the community who tried without success to register for the introduction to mining class scheduled from 7 to 9:45 p.m. Thursday evenings in room 121, do not despair. Due to unforeseen administrative delays at the University of Alaska Anchorage level, the class continues without the "course reference number" necessary for students to proceed with the registration process and therefore the class start date has been delayed. The first class will meet at 7 p.m. Jan. 27 in room 121. It is anticipated that students will be able to register at that time. This course has been designed as the entry-class for a new mining associate of applied science degree being developed at the school.

The introduction to mining course, PRT A194, can be found in the spring semester course schedule on page 35 under the heading of process technology. For more information, call Scott Kraxberger at 262-0354 or e-mail inslk@uaa.alas ka.edu

EMT class clarification

According to EMT-Paramedic instructor Paul Perry, the following clarifications need to made regarding the upcoming emergency medical technician I class. The course description in the spring schedule makes reference to "registration restrictions" that includes "evidence of a CPR certification." That is not the case. The six-credit EMT-1 class provides a full health care provider CPR certification included in the curriculum. This course provides the necessary training to become a state and-or nationally registered EMT-1, which is optional. There is a $75 lab fee associated with this class.

There also have been changes made in the times, dates and locations for the EMT classes.
