Individuals are admitted to KCKCC as special students if they are over 18 years of age, do not have a high school diploma or GED certificate cannot meet “ability to benefit” criteria, and are non-degree seeking.
Special students are required to follow College regulations, pay fees, and maintain satisfactory academic progress.
Enrollment for special students is limited to one course during their first semester at the College. After earning a grade of C or better, they are entitled to enroll in two courses the next semester. Students who continue to maintain a C average are allowed to take two classes each semester until they accumulate 20 academic credit hours. At that point, students must apply for regular status.
Students from Non-Accredited High Schools
Students who graduate from a non-accredited high school or are home-schooled can be admitted to the College based on their ACT, SAT, or GED scores and a personal interview with the Director of Admissions.
Students are responsible for contacting the institutions they have attended and requesting that their official transcript be mailed directly to KCKCC Admissions and Records Office. All official transcripts from previous colleges attended are required to be on file in the Admissions and Records Office before the admissions process is considered complete. 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 and authorized institutions, upon verification of authenticity. Photocopies and faxed copies can be used for advising purposes only, but are not considered official for the purpose of evaluation and posting to the KCKCC academic transcript.
Students who wish to have coursework accepted for credit at KCKCC for courses completed in secondary, college, and universities outside the U.S. must have a course–by-course evaluation completed by an independent agency such as Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (www.ece.org).
Transfer credit is not official until evaluated and posted to the KCKCC transcript. The college will evaluate transcripts based on the declared program of study. KCKCC will grant transfer credit only to courses that apply to the student’s program of study or meet degree requirements at KCKCC. Students who change their program of study or degree plan at KCKCC may request that the Records Office re-evaluate their transcript based on the changed active program.
KCKCC will grant credit for equivalent courses at KCKCC. Courses for which there are no equivalent courses at KCKCC, but which are determined to be acceptable transfer credit, will be designated with the most appropriate department codes and listed as elective. All courses posted on the KCKCC transcript will be included for computation into the cumulative grade point average.
