We are running the Outer Coast Year in person in Sitka during the 2020-21 academic year. To ensure the safety of students, staffulty, and the community of Sitka, we have implemented comprehensive COVID-19 health and safety protocols for the fall, which you can find here.


Nominations are the most effective way for us to reach potential student applicants and provide them with information about the Outer Coast Summer Seminar. If you are an educator who would like to nominate a student for our program, you can do so here.

Please note that nominations do not impact a student’s chances of being admitted to the program and that students do not need to be nominated in order to apply.
