Admission Procedures

New Students
Students must obtain, complete, and submit the following for admission to the College:

  1. New Students must complete an application form and return it to the Admissions and Records Office. Online application can be found on Apply Online.

  2. If pursuing a degree at KCKCC, certificate, or applying for financial aid (including VA benefits), students must submit official transcripts.

    • An official high school transcript that includes a graduation date (if you have completed over 24 hours of college credits, only your college transcript is required)
    • An official transcript from each college/university attended.
    • Non-degree seeking students must provide a college transcript if the course they are enrolling in requires a prerequisite.

  3. Students are responsible for contacting the institutions they have attended and requesting that their official transcripts be mailed directly to the KCKCC Admissions and Records Office. Hand-carried transcripts will be accepted as official only when the college seal is affixed, the envelope is sealed, and the document is submitted to the Admissions and Records office. Electronic transcripts are accepted through direct transmission from secured sites of authorized institutions, upon verification of authenticity. Photocopies and faxed copies can be used for advising purposes, but are not considered official for the purpose of evaluation and posting to the KCKCC academic transcript.

  4. Proof of residency: Residency status is determined by Kansas statutes. Kansas law generally, requires students to live in the state of Kansas for six consecutive months prior to the first day of the semester with intent to stay in Kansas.

  5. Complete the Required Placement Exam as adopted by the Kansas City Kansas Board of Trustees in Spring 2013.
