Kellogg Community College invites students to “Experience KCC” through any of its nearly 300 hands-on in-person or online classes this winter and spring across approximately 60 academic subjects, in addition to hundreds of Industrial Trades training modules.
Registration for the winter/spring classes that are part of the upcoming Spring 2023 semester is available now online and in person at all five campus locations, including the North Avenue and Regional Manufacturing Technology Center campuses in Battle Creek; the Eastern Academic Center campus in Albion; the Grahl Center in Coldwater; and the Fehsenfeld Center in Hastings.
Student registration information, including links to registration instructions, policies, tuition and fees and other information, is available at kellogg.edu/registration.
Specific academic classes offered at KCC during the Spring 2023 semester can be viewed via the Course Catalog at portal.kellogg.edu/Student/Courses. Individuals interested in checking out available Industrial Trades modules can visit kellogg.edu/industrial or contact the RMTC directly at 269-965-4137 or RMTC@kellogg.edu.
“Experience KCC” is the College’s new experience-based marketing campaign designed to highlight the many hands-on, practical learning opportunities available to students though the institution’s dozens of associate degree, certificate and workforce training programs.
New at KCC
New offerings at KCC this academic year include a 16-credit Maintenance Technician Certificate Program designed to prepare graduates for work maintaining equipment at manufacturing plants and other facilities. The program was intentionally built to be a “stackable pathway” that in addition to employment can position graduates for further education in one of the College’s Industrial Trades Associate of Applied Science degree programs.
KCC starting this fall also expanded its innovative service-learning endorsement to all students seeking to earn an associate degree. Beginning in 2012, a service-learning endorsement consisting of at least 15 hours of service-learning experiences became a requirement for every KCC graduate pursuing a degree outside of the applied sciences degrees. As a result of the program, hundreds of KCC students complete thousands of hours of service in their communities each semester as part of their education.
The expansion this academic year added the service-learning endorsement to occupational programs at KCC that traditionally require internships or clinical experience, including the College’s various health and industrial trades programs.
KCC also recently added the College’s popular Associate of Applied Science in Human Services degree to its offering of degree programs that can be completed almost entirely online. The Human Services Program, which is a popular option for students pursuing a career or further education in areas including social work, counseling, psychology and other related fields, consists of up to 60 hours of coursework and is the sixth associate degree program KCC currently offers online.
Additional online degree programs at KCC are:
- Associate in Arts
- Associate in Applied Science in Accounting
- Associate in Applied Science in Administrative Assistant
- Associate in Applied Science in Business Management
- Associate in Applied Science in Early Childhood Education
Students interesting in entering these online degree programs should contact KCC’s Admissions Office at email@example.com.
KCC continues offering educational opportunities for students younger and older than traditional college students, including dual enrollment and early college opportunities for high school students and a popular free tuition program for older students without a degree.
Dual enrollment opportunities are available for any qualified high school student interested in earning college credits by taking KCC classes while still in high school. High school students interested in dual enrollment should talk to their high school counselors about the potential for enrollment this winter and spring.
Michigan residents age 25 and older who don’t yet have a college degree may be eligible for free tuition to complete a degree or certificate program at KCC through the state’s Michigan Reconnect program. Interested individuals should visit kellogg.edu/reconnect or contact the KCC Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if they qualify.
