Welcome to Student Services

Graduation

The Vision of Student Services is dedicated to help students be successful in life. The staff in the Division believe that a significant amount of learning at college occurs outside of the classroom. In addition to utilizing the Student Advising Center or the Counseling and Advocacy Center for support and assistance, we encourage students to participate in programs and activities sponsored by Student Activities, the Intercultural Center, and Athletics. Enjoying living in Student Housing, seeking medical help from our Student Health Center, or taking advantage of the quality care offered to our students with children in the Child Care Center, we focus on all the ways we can help students be successful. Inclusive of the Office of the Dean of Student Services Office, Student Services offers quality services, and opportunities for students to have well-balanced college experience.

The Student Success Center

The Center’s staff provides academic support services including not limited to course selection and scheduling information about academic programs, availability of and continuing eligibility for financial aid, academic progress, and degree checks as part of the final preparation for graduation and degree conferral. Advising and success workshops for student athletes and workshops and counseling on Test Anxiety are provided. Advising is also provided to students seeking to transfer to four year colleges. The Student Success Center can be reached at 913-288-7696.

Student Housing

Student Housing provides a safe living environment that focus on community development, respect for others, enriching programs and activities, and a close connection on college resources. Student Housing staff make our residents comfortable and commit to community building programs. A focus on establishing a living/learning environment is a primary goal.

Kansas City Kansas Community College’s My Shelf to Yours Book Sale is returning to the Main Campus this week.

Kansas City Kansas Community College’s My Shelf to Yours Book Sale is returning to the Main Campus this week.

The sale is from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 7 and 9 in Room 2325 on the lower level of the Jewell Building on the KCKCC campus, 7250 State Ave. It will also be open 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 8. The sale is open to the public as well as students, staff and faculty.

“The book sales are our biggest fundraiser, and I have seen how important it is for our students who don’t have the means to buy all their books for class,” said Sarah Jones, coordinator of the Intercultural Center at KCKCC. “But not only does the sale support our students financially, it provides an opportunity for them to get to know each other and work towards something together.”

All books are $1 or seven books for $5, and proceeds benefit the student scholarship fund. The ICC uses the fund to distribute scholarships for textbooks and tuition to students who have a financial need.

“I really appreciate the My Shelf to Yours scholarship because it helps me save money,” said Halil Alimi, a student at KCKCC. “I really recommend this to my friends.”

In addition, there will also be beverages and snacks for sale as well as fashion jewelry and other local vendors. Those who attend the book sale and purchase at least $5 worth of items are entered into a raffle for a KCKCC Bookstore Certificate.

Created in 2010, the goal of My Shelf To Yours is to promote scholarship, leadership, entrepreneurship and sustainability by selling donated used books both on-line and on-ground. The student-operated store has gained national recognition from eBay’s Green Team for recycling books to help fellow students who need assistance with purchasing textbooks and with college tuition. Since the event started almost eight years ago, more than 70,000 books have been donated from 385 individuals. This has helped 406 students with 1064 textbooks and has awarded more than $25,800 in scholarships.

My Shelf To Yours donates any unsold book donations from the sale to local charities and organizations.

“I feel really grateful because the My Shelf to Yours scholarship gave me the opportunity to study,” said Nadia Vallecillo, a student at KCKCC. “Otherwise I couldn’t afford it on my own.”
