Accessibility, affordability, transferability: Make It KCC this fall

Portraits of students on colorful backgrounds.

Welcome to the second of several online tours of the Kellogg Community College admissions process scheduled through the month of August. Click here to view the first, posted last week.

KCC is less expensive and closer to home. These are two common responses that students, whether new or returning, tell us when asked why they chose to Make It KCC when continuing their education.

KCC is accessible and affordable, and it’s also transferable. Students looking to continue their education past the associate degree or certificate level can transfer their credits to any one of dozens of colleges and universities, making KCC the smart choice for students looking to complete their degrees with as little debt as possible.

In fact, in-district full-time students can save more than $17,000 on tuition and fees alone by completing their first two years of college at KCC, when compared to the average cost of the same education at a four-year college or university in Michigan.

View our Transfer Information web page or the Michigan Transfer Network website to see which KCC classes and programs transfer to colleges and universities in Michigan.

Check out the videos embedded below to hear more from previous KCC students about the accessibility, affordability and transferability of a KCC education, and make sure to sign up for appointment reminders for our virtual video tours coming later this month.

Three-Credit Giveaway for New Students

KCC will give one lucky new student at KCC this fall a voucher good to cover the tuition cost of up to three credit hours.
