With a local focus and global connections, Kodiak College is a student-centered, vibrant community of learners.


Kodiak College, UAA, puts students first through innovative teaching, individualized support, and responsive service to community needs.


Kodiak College offers numerous academic credit courses that lead to occupational endorsement and undergraduate certificates and associate degrees and may be transferred to other colleges. In addition to traditional campus courses, there are a variety of alternative course formats including web-based, self-paced, and synchronous elearning courses. Academic, vocational, recreational and personal enrichment courses provide a wide array of choices for Kodiak College students. Kodiak College also provides outreach services to the U.S. Coast Guard, Kodiak Senior Center, local schools and the rural communities of Kodiak.
