KCC Programs

Klamath Community College (KCC) is accredited through the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). KCC is authorized by the Oregon State Board of Education to provide approved academic programs (degrees and certificates).

Associate Degrees

Two-Year programs

Associate degree programs have requirements in general education as well as the selected major field of study. Candidates for a degree must fulfill all requirements listed in the degree program.

Generally, an Associate degree can be earned in two years of full-time study. If you attend part-time, take developmental education courses or change majors, completion of your chosen program may take longer than two years.

Associate of General Studies (AGS)

This degree is designed for students who wish to acquire a broad education rather than pursue a specific college major or professional/technical program.

Associate of Science (AS)

This degree is designed for students planning to transfer credits to a bachelor’s degree program that is not suited for the Associate of Arts, Oregon Transfer Degree.

Associate of Arts, Oregon Transfer degree (AA-OT)

This degree provides an opportunity for students to complete lower division (freshman and sophomore) bachelor’s degree requirements at KCC.

Associate of Applied Science (AAS)

This degree is for students who are preparing for entry-level employment or upgrading skills for a specific occupation. This degree is not intended as a transfer degree; however courses can be considered for transfer on a case-by-case basis by a four-year college or university.
