High School Programs

KCC offers a few ways for students to earn college credit before graduating from high school:

  • Students can enroll in regularly scheduled KCC courses while still in high school. This allows them to earn college credits before graduating high school. 
    Note: Students under age 16 are required to meet with the vice president for student affairs to review their appropriate enrollment in classes. Students must provide college placement scores and be eligible for high school before they are considered for admission.
  • In Dual Credit courses offered at high schools, students earn both college credit and high school credit while enrolled in approved KCC courses.
  • The Early College Program allows qualified high school students to enroll at KCC full-time. The classes apply toward both a high school diploma and a college degree.
