Students attending Legacy Scholars Orientation Day will meet KCC and Battle Creek College Access Network staff as they assist students through the Legacy Scholars scholarship process, making sure they have completed all of their scholarship and KCC enrollment requirements. Participants will:

  • Learn more about the Legacy Scholars scholarship and completing the process
  • Learn how to enroll in classes at KCC
  • Learn how to complete the financial aid process at KCC
  • Complete a financial literacy activity
  • Take a tour of KCC’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek

Trevion Thomas, Student Success Coach for Early College and Dual Enrollment at KCC, said the orientation events would be valuable for any Legacy Scholars student considering coming to KCC this fall.

“If you’re a Legacy Scholar or the parent of a Legacy Scholar graduating senior, talk to your high school counselor ASAP to let them know you want to attend one of our upcoming Orientation Days,” Thomas said. “Any questions you may have about the Legacy Scholars program or about coming to KCC will be answered during the event, and you can be confident coming to KCC this fall that you’re prepared to start your college journey.”

Legacy Scholars is a scholarship program created in 2005 by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation that provides a last-dollar KCC scholarship for anyone who graduates from Battle Creek Public Schools, the Lakeview School District or Calhoun Community High School. High school students are eligible for Legacy Scholars funding covering tuition and fees for up to 62 credit hours and four book stipends of up to $500. Legacy Scholars have up to five years following high school graduation to use their scholarship.
