2 - Determine Proper Course Placement

Every first-time college student is required to go through the placement evaluation process. First-time college students include those taking courses on campus, online, at Pioneer Career Center, at the Technical Education Center and through high school partnership/dual and concurrent enrollment programs. The only individuals exempt from the placement evaluation process are those:

  • Enrolling only in Wellness.
  • Enrolling only in a physical activity class from the exercise science curriculum.
  • Enrolling only in contract agreement with KCKCC.
  • Who has earned a two-year or higher degree and whose study included Math and English from an accredited post-secondary institution.

The placement evaluation process at Kansas City Kansas Community College uses multiple factors for course placement. Multiple factors include, but are not limited to, high school GPA/course grades, GED content scores, ACT/SAT scores, ACCUPLACER placement scores and DANTES scores.

Only reading placement is required for Cosmetology, Nail Technology, Electrical Technology, Medical Technology and health careers.
