Schedule a Campus Visit at PWSC

Prince William Sound College (PWSC) campus in Valdez, Alaska

Want to get a closer look? Visit our campus and meet the staff, faculty, and current students!

During a PWSC 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, an opportunity to meet with an advisor to review your program of study, and a chance to meet our Student Affairs 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 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please be aware that if you schedule a Friday tour, there are no Friday classes at PWSC 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, but 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.
