Distance Learning for Faculty

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.

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 with the student’s home state. For a directory of state authorization agencies and contact information, please use the NC-SARA listing of State Portal Entity Contacts.

Michigan Colleges Online (MCO)

Michigan Colleges Online student site 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.


Disability services are provided to students who self-disclose a disability to the Center for Student Success and provide appropriate documentation. For more information contact Support Services at 269-965-4150 or css@kellogg.edu.

Community colleges throughout Michigan are creating, sharing, and collaborating on high-quality OER for use in today’s classrooms.
