At Klamath Community College, we want to support students in making good decisions about potential education and career choices. KCC can ease the transition from high school to community college, from pre-college courses to credit postsecondary programs; and from community college to university or employment.
High school students may take classes at KCC. There is an approval form (for high school students new to KCC, and high school students returning to KCC) that must be submitted in addition to the normal Admissions application and registration forms.
In addition, we have partnered with high schools to offer a state-approved dual-credit program. Students can earn college credit for competencies mastered in certain high school courses and receive high school and college credits at the same time.
KCC has also entered into agreements with both the Klamath County School District and Klamath Falls City Schools for an Advanced Diploma program, which will allow qualifying high school seniors to receive one full year of college courses at no charge to the student. The program will cover the cost of tuition, fees and textbooks for accepted students.
In order to qualify for the Advanced Diploma program, students must complete all requirements of a standard diploma from their individual high school by the end of their senior year, must apply for admission to KCC and to their high school’s Advanced Diploma program, be accepted into the program, and must enroll in at least nine credit hours per term at KCC. In order to remain eligible for the program throughout the year, students must meet with their academic advisor at least once per term and must remain in academic good standing at KCC.
