Registration And Enrollment

General Policy
Students who attend classes receive grades and academic credit if they are properly registered for courses at the College. To register for courses, students must enroll during the designated enrollment periods which are held in August, January, and June. Times and dates are published in the Class Schedule printed each semester. Any student who is not properly registered or has a financial obligation at the College will be denied entrance to classes.

Advisement
Students are assigned a faculty member to serve as their academic advisor while enrolled at the College. Academic advisors are assigned according to the area of interest declared on the student's application for admission.

Students are responsible for making appointments with their advisors and meeting with them to develop a degree program while at KCKCC. Academic advisors also assist students in locating information about course prerequisites, transferability of courses, the sequence in which courses should be taken, and serve as mentors for their advisees.

In planning course schedules, students should keep in mind: a) their career goals, b) graduation requirements at KCKCC, and c) graduation requirements at the four year college or university they plan to attend.

Final responsibility for planning a degree program rests with the student.

Early Enrollment
It is strongly recommended that students take advantage of Early Enrollment to reserve their classes a semester in advance. Early Enrollment for the Fall and Summer semesters begins the preceding April and for the Spring semester the preceding November. Students who early enroll pay fees and finalize registration on the Payment Deadline prior to the beginning of the semester. Dates for Early Enrollment and Payment Deadline are available at www.kckcc.edu through the Web Advisor portal.
