1 - Complete an Application

Complete a free application. Check your e-mail for confirmation that your application has been received and processed. Submit high school and previous college transcripts to Transcript Services.

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.

For guidance about your course placement and for more information regarding multiple factors, contact Faith Moody at
