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 open enrollment and the designated enrollment periods which are held in August, January, and June. Times and dates are published online. Any student who is not properly registered or has a financial obligation at the College will be denied entrance to classes.


Residency of students is determined at the time of enrollment. Determination of residency is made in accordance with Kansas Statutes 71-406. A copy of these statutes is available from the Registrar or the College library.

A student must be a resident of Kansas for six (6) consecutive months prior to enrollment in order to qualify for in-state tuition. In order to prove their residency, students will need to fill out the Affidavit of Residency form and provide three (3) of the following items.

  • Receipt for purchase of Kansas license tags dated at least 6 months prior to the first day of term;
  • Receipt for payment of Kansas property taxes dated at least 6 months prior to the first day of term;
  • Employment verification or payroll check stubs from a Kansas employer or college attendance at an accredited Kansas Community College commencing six (6) months prior to the first day of term in the fall, spring and summer semester;
  • Copy of voter registration in the State of Kansas dated six (6) months prior to the first day of term;
  • Copy of Kansas driver's license dated at least six (6) months prior to the first day of term;
  • Utility Receipt and/or rent receipts continuously for the prior six (6) months; or
  • Verification from a Kansas resident that the above named student has resided with her/him/them for six (6) months prior to the first day of term.

Course Location Offerings

KCKCC offers a variety of course types. Please be aware of each as you register for courses. 

  • Online courses, generally, do not meet in a classroom and are available 24/7 in the college learning management system. However depending upon the content and instructor, students may be required periodic face-to-face testing, labs, or performance purposes. Please contact the appropriate division or instructor for this information.
  • Web-enhanced courses meet on campus in a traditional timeframe, of which certain elements are available within the learning management system.
  • Blended courses combine elements of both face to face courses and online courses. Students meet periodically in the Blended course model and complete a wide variety of task and assignments in the online environment.
  • There may be additional fees depending upon the course and section. 


Student Success Advisors are assigned upon application for admission. Program Coordinators are assigned based upon the student’s area of interest.

Advisor information is available from my profile on WebAdvisor. Students are responsible for making appointments with their advisors and meeting with them to develop a degree plan while at KCKCC. Student Success Advisors 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. Final responsibility for developing a degree plan rests with the student.

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

Early Enrollment

It is strongly recommended that students enroll in their classes early to reserve their classes a semester in advance. Enrollment for the Fall and Summer semesters begins the preceding April and for the Spring semester the preceding November.

Students are expected to make prompt payment of financial obligations, such as parking fines, library fines, graduation fees, special fees, and loans at the College.
