Goodbye SJC: Final graduation brings loss of accreditation

SITKA, ALASKA Sheldon Jackson College has graduated its last students.
The 130-year old Sitka institution closed its doors in 2007, but a handful of students were able to complete their degrees through an arrangement with the University of Alaska.
The success is bittersweet. With no more students and no more programs, Alaska’s oldest educational institution is officially gone.
