Registration for the the spring semester at Kenai Peninsula College kicked off Monday.

“It doesn’t happen every time, but it’s going the time that you’re the one who procrastinates and doesn’t register early and don’t get a seat in the class that you want.”

“We already have had some preregistration take place," she said. "We have a priority registration period; our existing students, the ones who are closest to graduation. And our veterans, who always get first shake.”
