Student Success Center

The staff and faculty of the Student Success Center is available to assist students with planning and achieving personal, career, and academic goals.



Student Success Advisors operate within a systematic process that is based on a close student-advisor relationship intended to aid students in achieving educational, career, and personal goals through the utilization of the full range of institutional and community resources available to students here at Kanas City Kansas Community College and within the surrounding community.

Questions regarding the need for placement testing by students who have previously received college credit for composition or math should be directed to the Placement Coordinator, 913-288-7171.
