Kodiak College cuts programs with low enrollment

    KODIAK, Alaska (AP) — Kodiak College says it is cutting some programs that are no longer in demand to save money during a difficult fiscal time for the state.

    KODIAK, Alaska (AP) — Kodiak College says it is cutting some programs that are no longer in demand to save money during a difficult fiscal time for the state.

    KMXT-FM reports that Kodiak College asked the University of Alaska Anchorage to stop admitting students to the undergraduate certificate in construction technology and the undergraduate certificate in industrial safety program support.

    Kodiak College Director Alan Fugleberg says those certificates aren't in high demand and the low enrollment doesn't justify the expense of hiring a teacher.

    Fugleberg says Kodiak might offer some of the classes from those programs through the continuing education program it is building.

    He says the college is also removing the Associate of Applied Science degree program in computer systems technology because of low enrollment.
