Upcoming Courses
Courses are available to you as:
  • Local and regional courses taught by Northwest Campus faculty. NWC offers community interest courses, such as painting, ceramics, and computer applications that are taught face-to-face in a traditional classroom setting. NWC faculty also teach distance delivered courses as part of CRCD's schedule, which includes the Bering Strait region. These are listed in the College of Rural and Community Development's Fall and Spring Schedule, but they can also be viewed through UAOnline at the Class Schedule link on the front page. As additional courses become available, NWC will advertise through local media, its NWC-News-L email list, and this website.

  • Semester-based distance delivered courses offered by other UA campuses. These can also be most easily found at the University of Alaska Distance Education Gateway or UAF eLearning & Distance Education. This is an online schedule that is searchable by course, meeting time, delivery type, and semester.

  • UAF eLearning & Distance Education offers online courses and fully online degrees. You can find these courses and degrees, and register online through UAF eLearning & Distance Education's website
These various schedules of courses offer instruction through audioconferences, paper-based correspondence, web-based correspondence, and Internet-based class meetings.

These are day-long trips with no facilities or amenities along the way, so be prepared for all manner of weather and bring plenty of food and water.
