The Veterans Services office is located upstairs in the McLane Building at the Kenai River Campus.
Kenai Peninsula College is now offering a military tuition discount for active, reserve, and national guard military service members. The discount military tuition pricing eliminates most out-of-pocket expenses, offering both in-person and online undergraduate courses for just $250 per credit hour. There are no additional fees except course-specific costs and materials if applicable. Students can use tuition assistance to cover the full cost of their education, with little to no additional fees or expenses.
Note: The discount military tuition pricing may not include special materials fees or college or school surcharges. It does not apply to course or lab fees, graduate tuition, and dependents.
To request the discounted military tuition rate and confirm eligibility, please submit The Military Rate Request Form to the KPC Veteran Services office.
For questions, contact KPC Veteran Services at kpc.veteranservices@alaska.
If you have never used VA benefits at any other college or educational facility, please follow these steps:
For regular MGIB benefit programs, you will need to certify your attendance EVERY MONTH with the VA. This requirement can be completed by calling the DVA office in Muskogee, OK at 1-877-823-2378 or by submitting your "Monthly Verification of Enrollment" form (VA Form 22-8979) via the Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) online system. This system also provides basic benefit information, such as a remaining number of benefit months.
