KCC Registrar Colleen Wright said the goal of the event is to help students get ready for the start of the spring semester Jan. 11.

“Often when we return in January, students are scrambling to get ready. We’re here to get them started so that they’re prepared when the semester begins,” Wright said. “When they wait, they often don’t get the schedule they want. Many are balancing home and work obligations, and we want them to know that we are here to help them understand the steps to begin college and how to put together a schedule that fits their lifestyle.”

For the free-credit-hours drawing, Wright said there will be entry slips available in each department. The drawing will be held Dec. 14.
