Distance Learning

KCC provides multiple modalities for learning including fully online courses, hybrid courses (part online/part in classroom), and Web-enhanced traditional courses (typical face-to-face courses with online information).

All credit courses follow the semester schedule, utilize schedules, require participation and follow the same rigorous guidelines as our face-to-face courses.

Online Learner Orientation

The Online Learner Orientation is a one-time prerequisite for students taking online courses. This course should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and will help you navigate through your online courses as well as help you understand expectations and available resources for online learning at KCC.

This course must be completed prior to registration of any KCC online course. Grades are posted within 24 hours each business day.

For more information and a brief tutorial on how to register, please visit Learning Technologies Online Learner Orientation.

Student Complaint Process for Out-of-State Enrollments

Kellogg Community College (KCC) strives to resolve student concerns, complaints, or grievances. Students residing outside the state of Michigan while attending KCC should follow the college’s process outlined within the KCC Student Handbook. If the issues cannot be resolved within the college, a complaint may be filed  (reference for state and agency contacts) . For a directory of state authorization agencies and contact information, please use the NC-SARA State Portal Entity Contacts.

Michigan Colleges Online (MCO)

Michigan Colleges Online allows students the opportunity to take classes that aren’t available at their own college for various reasons, while still receiving support services at their convenient “home” college. All credits earned at “Provider Colleges” transfer back to the student’s “Home College”. The Michigan Community College Association created MCO in cooperation with Michigan’s community colleges as a vehicle to provide access to more courses and programs for students.
