Dr. Jan Karazim, dean of Workforce Development at KCC, said the new program offerings are designed to increase career options for local students while meeting the modern demands of area employers.

The new Allied Health programs starting this fall are just the latest of several new academic offerings at the College. In the fall of 2017, KCC launched an Agricultural Operations Program partnership with Michigan State University that allows students to earn an Associate in General Studies degree at KCC while simultaneously earning an Agricultural Operations Certificate through MSU – with all coursework completed entirely at KCC. That same semester, KCC formally launched a new Web Design and Development Certificate Program; a Home Care Coding course was announced the previous spring.

KCC has also been expanding its manufacturing and CNA training offering across the College’s service area, and recently expanded articulation agreements with Olivet College and Western Michigan University. These new and expanding initiatives are making it easier than ever for students to meet their goals at KCC, whether that means going straight into the workforce or on to a four-year school.

The first classes of KCC’s fall semester begin Aug. 30. Student registration information, including links to registration instructions, policies, tuition and fees and other information, is available online at www.kellogg.edu/registration.
