In an effort to give current and prospective students an opportunity to get the classes they need, Kenai Peninsula College has opened online registration earlier than ever before.
To register online access the Web site at kpc.alaska.edu and click on UA online, on the lower right hand corner. Students will need to enter their student ID number and personal identification number (PIN.) Once logged into the system choose student services from the menu, then registration.
At the next menu choose register-add-drop classes and the spring 2006 term. Course reference numbers (CRNs) for each specific class are entered into the University of Alaska system at this point.
After CRNs are entered click on submit, verify the information and click on complete your registration and then exit to complete the process. If registering on a public access computer it is important to click on return to home page in order to protect personal records.
If any problems come up in the registration process, the public can call Campus Services help desk for assistance at 262-0330 or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org. During business hours a student peer advisor will be available.
Peer advisers and the admissions assistant are trained to troubleshoot problems and answer questions. Peer advisers this semester include Lynsey Mese, Kristin Veselsky, Cynthia Crowley, Ashlee Davis and Anna Doner-Pond. The student assistant to admissions registrars Shelly Blatchford and Sarah Shearer also are available to answer questions. In addition to helping with the registration process, the peer advisers and admissions assistant can make appointments with an adviser.
Shell Exploration recruiters
Earlier this month, Operations recruiting coordinator, Victoria Settles Grimes and recruiting specialist, Louis Poore with Shell Exploration and Production Company visited KPC.
The visits were arranged by business and industry faculty in order to bring possible intern and employment opportunities to process technology, occupational safety and health, and industrial process instrumentation students and graduates.
Aptitude tests and interviews were granted to second year students and graduates. According to division chair Scott Kraxberger, turnout was excellent with 21 KPC applicants.
The recruiters, who traveled from Texas, were given a tour of the process technology and instrumentation labs and simulators. Krax-berger said, “The Shell recruiters were extremely impressed with KPC’s facilities and graduates. Ms. Grimes commented that our instrument and process tech lab and simulator facilities had features lacking in much larger training facilities in Texas and Louisiana. The consensus from Shell was, ‘We’ll be back next year!’ ”
Kraxberger indicated that Shell said they intend to expand the interview process next round to include disciplines such as mill right, industrial mechanic and electrical technician candidates. While on-site Shell indicated that the positions they are recruiting for are in-state and out of state.
For more information about future recruitment opportunities, call Kraxberger at 262-0354 or e-mail him at email@example.com.
