University Police At MSC

 You may have already seen Officer Kevin Stevenson walking the halls of our campus. He is a member of the University Police Department (UPD) based at the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) Campus. He has been a police officer for 30 years and 18 of those years have been with UPD.

Officer Stevenson is on our campus to provide safety and security for students, faculty and staff. He says “I want students, staff and facility to feel comfortable and come in and talk, even if they want to have a confidential conversation.”

While Stevenson is here for now, eventually he will rotate out with other UPD officers. Officers can perform vehicle jump starts, vehicle unlocks, on-campus escorts, safety education programs, and of course respond to calls for assistance.

If you need to get in touch with an officer, you are asked to call UPD Dispatch at (907) 786-1120. If you have an emergency, call 911 immediately. 

Financial Aid Workshops

August 22, 2022

The Mat-Su College is on a mission to dispel the myths that surround the cost of higher education. Join us for a complete walkthrough of the entire financial aid process.

  • The FAFSA application,
  • Scholarships,
  • Student loans,
  • FAFSA Myths,
  • Troubleshooting financial aid problems,
  • And, More!

The Financial Aid Workshops will include a PowerPoint presentation with Financial Aid Advisor Darla Budde. She says, "I always look forward to my workshops because I never know who is going to show up! I also just love to see a student’s face when they learn more about financial aid, because often they have misconceptions and end up leaving the workshop feeling much more positive than when we started!"

Students will be able to ask questions afterwards.

To sign up for this free opportunity, call 907-745-9762 or use this link to sign up online.
