AKCIS Activation Agreement

2015-2016 Activation and Fee Waiver Agreement

The Alaska Career Information System (AKCIS) is a web-based, resource-rich, and interactive education and career planning system.

The Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education (ACPE) makes AKCIS grants in the form of fee waivers available to schools, districts, and education/career mentoring organizations serving Alaska's citizens. A waiver is available for the period of September 1, 2015, through August 31, 2016.  Fee waiver grantees must submit the Activation and Fee Waiver Agreement annually to qualify for ongoing access. Participation in AKCIS will entitle site administrators to establish portfolios for individual users at their AKCIS site at no cost.

By submitting the form below and accepting an ACPE Fee Waiver Grant Award, your institution or organization is agreeing to provide all services related to AKCIS and access to the AKCIS site free of charge to individual users. We request that all agreements be received by September 30, 2015. Your completed Activation and Fee Waiver Agreement will be sent to ACPE when you hit the submit button following completion of the form.

If you are unable to submit the form online, please contact the AKCIS Helpline at (800) 441-2962 (465-2962 in Juneau) option 3 or email akcis@alaska.gov.

Supplemental Instructions

~Name of Site Coordinator: The Site Coordinator is the person with authority over AKCIS for the site. ACPE staff will only be authorized to release usernames, passwords, and site specific information to this person. For example: At a local high school, the Site Coordinator might be the principal, and the Site Administrator could be the lead counselor or career resource educator.

~~Name of Site Administrator: The Site Administrator is the person who will be providing assistance to staff and users at the site. They will handle administrative duties and may coordinate trainings. For example: At a local high school, the Site Coordinator might be the principal, and the Site Administrator could be the lead counselor or career resource educator.

Participation in the AKCIS Listserv

When you register as a new AKCIS site, your primary contacts are automatically added to the AKCIS Listserv. This process will generate a confirmation message that you've joined successfully. This service will be used to make announcements for new releases, site changes, training, and any other exciting news you should know throughout the year.

Using IP Addresses for Logging In

Did you know that your site can be setup to use an IP address login along with, or instead of, your username and password for users? This is an option for sites with computer labs for clients or students to access AKCIS throughout the day. With an IP address login, you don't have to give out the username and password repeatedly for each person wishing to log in. For example: A large college or library may have a computer lab with 10-30 computers their students or clients can use on a daily basis. It may be more logical to have the IP addresses for those computers registered with AKCIS so that any individual using the computer could be logged into the site's account directly without having to obtain the site's username and password. For more information or to have this type of login established, call AKCIS at (800) 441-2962 (465-2962 in Juneau) option 3.
