KPC offers tuition deal for Outsiders

Posted: Friday, April 14, 2006

Kenai Peninsula College attempts to use education to expand people’s minds and broaden their career options, but this summer it goes a step further by allowing students to stretch a few dollars.

For the 2006 summer semester, KPC will waive out-of-state tuition rates for all its courses.

“We want to attract more students in summer,” said Gary Turner, director of the college.

Out-of-state tuition for lower division courses will be $109 per credit this summer, as opposed to the typical $363 per credit.

“That adds up quickly. For a three-credit course students will be saving $762,” Turner said.

Out-of-state tuition for upper division courses will be $123 per credit this summer, as opposed to the typical $377 per credit, and graduate courses will be $244 per credit as opposed to $498, according to Turner.

In addition to the savings, Turner said that the summer semester is a great time to attend since all courses are accelerated.

“Many of the courses start May 30 and end June 30, so students can get a course out of the way in one month versus 16 weeks,” he said.

Registration for the summer semester began Monday. For more information on summer courses offered at Kenai Peninsula College or to sign up using the Internet, visit the school’s Web site at
