Campus Visits

Want to get a closer look? Take a peek at the everyday activities of our campus? Or just meet the staff, faculty, and a few current students?

A campus visit maybe the perfect activity for you! During a PWSCC campus tour you will get a tour of our campus and residence halls, time to sit-in on a class relating to your chosen program of study, time to meet with an advisor to review your program of study, and meet our friendly student services staff to answer any other questions you may have.

Want to see what a night in the residence halls is like? No problem! We will arrange for a current student to host you for the night; you will gain the first hand experience of living in the residence halls and the opportunity to meet with and talk to other current students. We are happy to reserve a night in the residence halls for you but please mention it when scheduling your visit so we can guarantee a host.

Campus visits can be scheduled for any time from 8am to 4pm, Monday through Friday. Please be aware that if you schedule a Friday tour, there are no Friday classes at PWSCC so you won’t get to sit-in on a class but you may still be able to meet with a professor given prior notice.

Traveling to Alaska can be tricky; here are a few tidbits that may help

  • Weather changes in Alaska frequently, be prepared for rain, snow, or sunshine. Layers are always recommended as well as an umbrella and comfortable shoes.
  • Summer is the most popular time to come but to catch school in session we recommend you come in Fall, Spring, or Winter for the adventurous.
  • The drive from Anchorage to Valdez is 5.5 hours or you can fly in 40 minutes.
      Average flight times to Anchorage are: 

    • Chicago-6 hours
    • Fairbanks-1 hour
    • Houston-8.5 hours
    • Minneapolis-5.5 hours
    • Portland-3.5 hours
    • Seattle-3.5 hours
