Dear Current and Prospective Students,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to KCC! This is a special place where many bright and hard-working individuals – from every conceivable background in the Basin – have come to improve their lives and earn the education they never imagined possible. As many of you know, education has a way of absolutely transforming ourselves and the magical gift it brings is alive and well at KCC. I am honored to work with our students and thoroughly enjoy knowing many of you and cheering you on as you achieve your goals, sometimes to your own surprise.

Finally, you will often hear us repeat the phrase “Graduation Starts Today” at KCC and it’s important that you know that we literally mean this! Your success and ultimate degree completion is a series of small goals you will earn on a daily and weekly basis and to be successful it is incredibly important to have consistent effort, regular communication with faculty, staff and your peers, and the goal – your diploma – in sight as you move forward. We believe deeply in this concept and your success. Give it your all!
All my best to you as you achieve your dreams.
