University of Alaska scholarship application period closing soon
Most students have no idea the number of scholarships available in the university system that they can apply using just one application that can be accessed/completed online at https://alaska.academicworks.com/. The deadline for submitting applications is Feb. 15.
Students must submit their 2019/2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as part of the application process. The FAFSA is typically required for all students applying for university financial aid. The FAFSA application can be accessed online at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa.
Summer semester registration period opens soon
KPC strives to give students extra time to plan their summer class schedule before registration is available on UAOnline (Feb. 11 for currently admitted students; Feb. 25 for the general public). Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor prior to registering to be sure they are on track to graduate in the shortest time possible.

Application period for fall 2019 paramedic cohort is open
Paul Perry, assistant professor of paramedic technology, has announced the opening of the fall 2019 Paramedic application period. This year, the application is fully online and required supplemental documents can also be uploaded. The application, along with information about the program, can be found at https://www.kpc.alaska.edu/academics/areas-of-study/paramedic/paramedic-online-application/.
Perry encourages setting up an advising session as it is important to be fully prepared to enter the program. Interested potential students can contact Perry at 262-0378 or email email@example.com to set up an appointment.
The deadline to apply for the program is May 15, 2019 and it is important that all requirements, including background checks and other documentation, are fully completed. “Because the competition for seats is/can be fierce, I encourage potential students to apply earlier than later. But I will say that if an outstanding application arrives on May 16, I will certainly evaluate it,” Perry said.

KPC Showcase rolling on this spring
Events in the spring semester KPC Showcase series continue Feb. 21 when Dr. Casey J Rudkin, KRC assistant professor of English, and her husband Jim will be discussing writing and publishing, providing a bit of how-to for people who hope to write and publish.
Their presentation, entitled “Have I Heard of You?: Writing What You Love and Publishing in an Ever-Changing Market,” will feature suggestions and discussion. They will also have a short reading from their jointly written (under the pen name JC Rudkin) short story “Your Plaintive Cries” from the recently published “The Living Pulps” by Oscar de Los Santos.
Dr. Rudkin, who has taught writing for many years, said she hoped the event could help those looking forward to “making it” in publishing but are uncertain about the process.
The event begins at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 21 in the McLane Commons at KRC.
