Around Campus: Priority registration for fall opens this week

Posted: Monday, April 04, 2011

For the past few years, KPC and all UAA campuses have provided a priority registration period for students enrolled in degree or certificate programs so they are able to secure seats in required courses needed for graduation. The process was fully embraced which resulted in overloaded servers and frustrated students.

In an effort to manage the registration blitz, the priority registration scheme for the upcoming fall semester has been modified to give priority to students with higher class standing. Graduate students may register online on Friday, April 1, seniors register on Monday, April 4, juniors register on Tuesday, April 5, sophomores register on Wednesday, April 6, freshmen register on Thursday, April 7, and pending-degree seeking students register on April 11.

Online registration for the public begins at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, April 18 and if trends continue as they have for the last couple of years, competition for seats in courses will be high. To avoid disappointment, prospective students are encouraged to register right away. Fall semester classes begin Aug. 29.

UA Foundation providing local estate and financial planning seminar

In an effort to provide a public service for the communities KPC serves, the Kenai River Campus requested that the UA Foundation offer their annual, free estate and financial planning seminar locally. The seminars have been held at the UA campuses in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau and have proved to be very popular.

The UA Foundation sponsored seminar will be held from 5:15 to 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27 in the Steffy Building at the Kenai River Campus. The informational session will offer general information aimed at providing attendees with tools to help answer questions like how and why Alaskans should create an effective estate plan, whether a will is necessary, what effects the new 2010 tax law changes might have on estate planning and explore the ins and outs of charitable giving options.

The presenters at the seminar include Susan Behlke Foley, JD, from the firm Foley and Foley, P.C., in Anchorage. She has focused her practice exclusively on assisting clients with estate planning, business related issues, and post-mortem trust administration. Joining Foley will be John Letourneau, CPA and Managing Director from Thomas, Head & Greisen, in Anchorage where the firm's focus includes both estate planning and tax preparation and planning. Both presenters are members of the Anchorage Estate Planning Council, first organized in 1960. The AEPC is an interdisciplinary organization for professionals involved in estate planning.

Because space is limited, please RSVP for the free seminar at 1-888-907-4823 (toll free) or e-mail by April 15. Light refreshments will be served. For additional information, call the KPC advancement office at 262-0320 or e-mail
