KCC, Legacy Scholars to help students at Aug. 8 assistance lab

As recent graduates from the Battle Creek and Lakeview school districts prepare to use their Legacy Scholars Scholarships this fall, admissions experts at Kellogg Community College and Legacy program representatives are hosting an “assistance lab” to help students understand and move through the scholarship process.

The drop-in lab, which is free and open to the public, will be open for two sessions on Thursday, Aug. 8, in Room 103 of the Ohm Information Technology Center, 450 North Ave., in Battle Creek. The first session is 10 a.m. to noon; the second is 4-6 p.m. No appointments are necessary.

Students can stop in anytime during the sessions to ask questions, complete paperwork and receive guidance on the Legacy Scholars program, which pays for up to 62 credit hours of KCC coursework for Battle Creek and Lakeview graduates.

“We’re making the Legacy Scholarship process as smooth as we can for incoming students,” said Eric Greene, director of public information and marketing at KCC. “Even if you haven’t started the paperwork for your Legacy Scholarship, stop by our assistance lab so we can guide you through the process and get you enrolled.”

The Fall 2013 semester begins Aug. 29; registration for classes is available online at Kellogg.edu or in person by visiting the Student Center at KCC’s North Avenue campus or any of KCC’s regional centers.

The Legacy Scholars program was launched in 2005 by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and is managed by a partnership involving the Battle Creek Community Foundation, Battle Creek College Access Network, Lakeview School District, Battle Creek Public Schools and KCC.
