Kenai Peninsula College—an extended campus of the University of Alaska—is located in southcentral Alaska on the beautiful Kenai Peninsula. KPC has campuses in both Soldotna and Homer. The region offers world-class outdoor activities and is only two hours south of Anchorage. Despite its northern latitude, the Kenai Peninsula has surprisingly mild winters and comfortable summers.
KPC offers two-year Associates of Arts and Associates of Applied Science degrees, as well as courses leading to vocational certificates. Some programs leading to baccalaureate degrees, such as the Bachelor of Liberal Studies, can be obtained entirely at KPC. A number of four-year degree programs are available at KPC via distance delivery through other University of Alaska campuses.
