Welcome to the Kodiak College Tuition Award Application!
Please review the entire application and plan enough time to complete it before the application deadline.
Fall semester application deadline: August 5th each year
Spring semester application deadline: November 30th each year
Each Fall and Spring semester Kodiak College grants tuition awards on a per credit basis depending on funding available and the number of qualified applications received.
Only one application per student will be accepted. If multiple applications are submitted, the last submission received prior to the due date will be considered by the committee.
If you will be using any type of tuition-based education assistance this semester (military tuition assistance, Post 911 GI Bill, UAA tuition awards, etc.) please contact Student Services prior to completing this application.
- Are awarded per credit. Each credit is valued at the current undergraduate lower division tuition rate at the Kodiak College campus.
- If you have a tuition discount (ie. JumpStart), the amount awarded will be prorated to the amount you receive for that semester.
- Are awarded each Fall and Spring semester. You must reapply every semester AFTER you register for classes.
- Have a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA (high school GPA is used for incoming freshman).
- Be admitted to a degree or certificate program at Kodiak College. Students admitted to the CNA program or UAA Nursing and Education programs are not eligible to apply unless they are also admitted to a Kodiak College program.
- Have completed your registration for the semester applying and are registered for at least 1 credit through the Kodiak campus. Students taking at least 75% of their coursework from the Kodiak campus will receive additional consideration from the committee.
- Have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), even if federal aid is not expected. The information from the FAFSA helps the awarding committee determine financial need. You are encouraged to provide additional information about your circumstances if you are ineligible or do not qualify for federal aid.
- Submit a completed application by the published deadline.
Do not submit this application without your essay being reviewed by a qualified individual, ie: writing tutor, English instructor, librarian, College & Career Guide or other individual approved by Student Services. Friends, relatives and classmates are not qualified reviewers, however, they are great resources to help you prepare a draft for your tutor session.
- Writing tutors are available in The Learning Center. Appointments are recommended.
- You may also use the free services of Live Homework Help to upload your essay and have it reviewed by a qualified tutor online. This service is available every day from 12pm-2am.
- Remember to compose and save your essay in a separate file (Word, Notepad, etc.) prior to submitting the application.
