3 ways to earn college credits at KCC while still in high school

Completing college classes while still in high school is a great way to earn college credits before graduation and shorten the time it takes to meet your goals. Whether you plan on earning a degree or certificate from Kellogg Community College to give you an edge in the workplace or simply want to get your basic courses out of the way before transferring to a four-year school or university, the following three options for earning college credits while still in high school will get you where you want to go faster and, in most cases, without spending a dime on tuition.

  1. Dual-enrollment. Dual-enrollment is when a high school student enrolls in classes at KCC at the same time he or she is still enrolled in high school. Dual-enrolled students traditionally spend part of the school day in class at their high school and part of the school day in class on campus at KCC. The first step to becoming a dual-enrolled high school student is to contact your high school guidance counselor and ask about dual-enrollment opportunities at KCC. More information about dual-enrollment at KCC is available online at www.kellogg.edu/high-school-dual-enrollment.
  2. Early College. Like dual-enrollment, Early College programs involve high school students enrolling at KCC while still attending high school. Early College programs generally begin during the student’s sophomore year of high school and run through an additional “fifth year” extending one year after traditional high school graduation. Early College students take a variety of KCC courses intermixed with their high school schedules and graduate after their fifth year with an associate degree in addition to their high school diploma. KCC currently has Early College agreements with a handful of regional high schools. For more information about Early College opportunities offered at KCC through your high school, contact your high school guidance counselor.
  3. High school articulation. While programs like dual-enrollment and Early College involve high school students taking KCC classes for college credit, high school articulation awards college credits for classes taken by the student at his or her high school. A high school student who successfully completes an approved high school course with a grade of a B or higher and also completes associated competencies to demonstrate his or her learning to KCC’s Articulation Committee is eligible to receive college credits for the equivalent course at KCC. For more information about high school articulation, visit www.kellogg.edu/high-school-articulation.

If you’re a high school student interested in taking advantage of one of the opportunities above now or in the near future – including next fall – now is the time to let us know! Contact our Admissions office at adm@kellogg.edu or 269-965-4153 and let us help you find your path at KCC!

KCC bookstore collecting used shoes for donation, recycling in April

Kellogg Community College’s Bruin Bookstore is collecting gently used athletic shoes for donation and worn out athletic shoes to recycle as part of a Sneaker Collection campaign during the month of April.

The bookstore, located on the first floor of the Lane-Thomas Building on KCC’s campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek, will accept the shoes through the end of the month during regular business hours, which are 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays.

This is the third consecutive year the bookstore has held the sneaker event, which over the past two years has collected more than 120 pairs of gently worn shoes for donation and nearly 60 unusable pairs for recycling.

The Sneaker Collection is one of many community collections undertaken at the Bruin Bookstore each year, which include an annual Hoodies for the Homeless shirts and coats collection each fall semester. An eyeglasses collection in March at the bookstore resulted in nearly 250 pairs of used eyeglasses collected for donation and recycling through the Lions Club Recycle for Sight program.

The Sneaker Collection initiative also corresponds with the Bruin Bookstore’s Annual Spring Sale, during which all KCC clothing and gift items are 20 percent off for the entire month.

For more information about the KCC Bruin Bookstore’s Sneaker Collection campaign, the Annual Spring Sale or other KCC bookstore initiatives, contact the bookstore at 269-965-4128. General information about the Bruin Bookstore, including key textbook dates for students, is available online at http://bookstore.kellogg.edu/store1/home.aspx.
