Welcome to the Kodiak College Tuition Award Application!

Kodiak College grants tuition awards on a per credit basis depending on funding available and the number of qualified applications received. Spring 2018 will be the last semester for the tuition award grant. 

***IMPORTANT DEADLINE FOR KODIAK COLLEGE STUDENTS***

Spring 2018 semester will be the last tuition award grant available for  Kodiak College degree seeking students. Apply now, deadline is November 30, 2017.

The purpose of the financial questions is to allow the committee to evaluate your financial need compared to other applicants. If you you have expenses much greater than your income, you should explain how you intend to close the gap if you do not receive financial assistance (student loans, increased work hours, reducing course load, etc.).
