Getting Started

Klamath Community College (KCC) subscribes to an open-door, open admissions policy and welcomes all students, regardless of educational background, who can benefit from the variety of programs and courses offered.

A formal application process is required for students interested in credit or degree programs prior to initial course registration. This process is waived for persons registering in only non-credit classes. Community members who desire to take a non-credit course can either mail-in, or register in person at Student Services, by completing a class registration form. Payment is due by the first day of class.

Student Success Representatives are available to assist you with questions regarding your attendance at KCC. They can assist you with admission, registration, financial aid, and academic advisement.
