Kenai Peninsula College is simplifying how mandatory student fees are assessed beginning with the spring 2021 semester.  

Six separate mandatory fees are being replaced by a single $22.30 per credit fee that will be assessed starting when a student registers for one credit. The new fee will appear on a student’s account as KPC Consolidated Fee and it will apply to all students, in all KPC courses, regardless of the delivery mode or location.

For more information check out the Spring 2021 Mandatory Student Fee Changes webpage.

Comments, questions, and suggestions on the new KPC Consolidated Fee Structure can be emailed (uaa_krcsu@alaska.edu) and will be accepted from Sept. 21-Oct. 2, 2020.
