Individuals interested in studying to pursue a career in health care can get a sneak preview of sorts during Kellogg Community College’s Allied Health Pre-Admissions Session this week.

The session will provide an overview of information covering the experiences and processes potential students can expect to encounter while participating in one of KCC’s two-year academic programs leading to an associate degree in the health care field. Such KCC health programs to be highlighted during the event include:

  • Dental Hygiene
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

The session will also include tours of specific program areas of the campus associated with individuals’ programs of interest, including the College’s Dental Hygiene Clinic and various simulation labs, so potential students can get a feel for the program environment.

The Allied Health Pre-Admissions Session is open to anyone interested in studying one of the above Allied Health programs at KCC, but seating is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. To secure a seat for the event, interested individuals can register online at
