Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the University of Alaska’s Kodiak College,
where we’ve been “Putting Students First” since 1968!

The moment you arrive on campus in person or virtually, you’ll feel a caring, welcoming spirit and sense the pride in all you encounter.  These are characteristics of a world class, award winning institution of higher learning--a distinction we are very proud of.  


The campus is bustling with positive energy and new spaces sprouting up thanks to Federal Title III grant funding.  The beautiful new Kodiak Room in the Library, the Alutiiq Studies language lab and gathering space in the Campus Center and our shiny new website at www.koc.alaska.edu - Check them out!

Whether working on one class, a certificate,  an AA or BA degree in any of 9 academic areas, we’re here to provide you with rich learning opportunities, diverse activities in which to participate, a beautiful setting with well-maintained facilities and state of the art technology. You’ll be supported by  well planned and executed student services, creative, energetic  faculty and dedicated, knowledgeable staff—all to support your success as a student. 

We’re committed helping you meet your goals and living our core values:  Lifelong Learning, Diversity, Expertise, Knowledge, Respect, Engagement, Equity, and Service. We are dedicated to our Mission:  “To make Kodiak College Kodiak Island’s first choice as a vibrant gathering place for learners”.
