Financial Aid

Welcome to Kellogg Community College’s Financial Aid home page! We have established an effective financial aid program of scholarships and grants, campus employment and loans. Students are encouraged to complete the Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) used by the Financial Aid office to determine eligibility for most aid sources. Through our programs, the College attempts to make education financially possible for all eligible and qualified applicants.

The Financial Aid Office is located on the Battle Creek campus in the Ohm Building. General information and forms are available at the Regional Manufacturing Technology Center (RMTC), the Grahl Center in Coldwater, the Fehsenfeld Center in Hastings, and the Eastern Academic Center in Albion.

Apply Early

Applications for financial aid should be received at least 60 days prior to the first enrollment semester each year to guarantee eligible funds for the start of that semester.

Notice: The Financial Aid Department will provide the majority of communications via The Financial Aid Self Service System through the Bruin Portal and also via your KCC student email. Please become familiar with how to access your email.
