Student Consumer Information

In accordance with the federal regulations set forth by The Higher Education Act of 1965, certain student consumer information must be made available to all students at Kellogg Community College. The links below provide access to this information. If you need assistance obtaining information listed, contact the Student Services office.

HLC Accreditation Status

The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is an independent corporation and one of two commission members of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), which was founded in 1895 as one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States. The Higher Learning Commission accredits, and thereby grants membership in the Commission and in the North Central Association, degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region.

Why Accreditation Matters

  • Accreditation means students can receive federal financial aid to attend KCC.
  • Many employers and licensing exams require education be attained at an accredited school.
  • Accreditation means students are attending a quality college.
  • It is easier for students to transfer credits from an accredited school.
