Campus Services in Response to COVID-19

Services for Students During Restricted Campus Access

Kodiak College spring 2020 classes are continuing in alternative formats including online and by videoconferencing, but you may be wondering about campus services? While stopping by Student Services or the Learning Center won’t be the same as a few weeks ago, rest assured that there are still plenty of people available to help you. The information below gives you an update on Kodiak College campus departments, student resources, and academic support and is current as of March 27, 2020 at noon.

Academic Advising is available by phone, email, or videoconference.  If you are not sure who you advisor is, check the Kodiak College Academic Advising web page or contact Barbara Brown at bebrown@alaska.edu or 907-486-1211 for assistance.
Financial Aid Advising is available by phone, email, or videoconference.  Contact Nancy Castro at ncastro2@alaska.edu or 907-486-1214 with your questions or to set up an appointment. 

Admission and Registration questions should be submitted by email to studentservices@kodiak.alaska. edu or you can call the Student Services department phone at 907-486-1266 for help.

The withdrawal deadline for the spring 2020 semester is Friday, April 10.  Students are encouraged to seek academic and financial aid advising before they withdraw from courses since successful completion of courses is necessary to receive some financial aid and to continue to make progress toward your academic goals.  Looking ahead, registration for the summer 2020 semester is happening now and the fall 2020 course schedule becomes available to view on Monday, March 23 through UAOnline.

While in-person tutoring has been suspended, FREE online tutoring continues to be available throughout the week through The Learning Center in math, writing, science, computers, study strategies, and more. Meet with a tutor in real-time virtually through our tutoring scheduler.

Uncomfortable with technology? Our dedicated, friendly tutors can walk you through it and assist you with coursework, study skills, time management, scholarship applications, resumes – you name it! As always, our goal is your long-term success.
