Advising

Student Success Advisors are available to assist new and transfer students with:

  • Advising and enrollment
  • Deciding on a major

Who is my Advisor?

Students in career programs are assigned a faculty program coordinator to assist them with advising and enrollment.  All other first time students are assigned to a student success advisor.  Any student who has not completed 30 credits must enroll in the Success Center with an advisor or with their program coordinator.   The Student Success Center has walk-in times available each day and appointments can be scheduled with your success advisor.  Once you have made application and completed the placement test or have copies of your previous college transcripts, it is required that you meet with an advisor for course selection and enrollment.

Transfer and Visiting Students

Placement scores and previous college transcripts are needed to advise all students.  Prior to meeting with an advisor please make sure the following requirements have been met:

  • If you completed a placement test at another college or university, please have your placement scores sent to the Placement Coordinator.  Contact the placement coordinator at 913 288-7171 for more information.
  • Make sure your official transcripts from your previous college or university are sent to the Registrar’s office, or bring a student copy of the transcript with you for advising. This will allow us to check for prerequisite completion.

Course Selection and Degree Requirements

Course Selection 

Once you have made application and completed the placement test, it is recommended that you consult with an student success advisor or program coordinator to seek advice with planning your schedule.

Degree Requirements

Students are responsible for making appointments with an student success advisor to develop a degree program while at KCKCC. Our professional staff can assist students with planning and achieving educational and career objectives, locating information about course prerequisites, transferability of courses, the sequence in which courses should be taken, and refer students interested in Career Programs (Associate in Applied Science degrees) to the appropriate program coordinator.
