Kellogg Community College will open for fall registration online and in-person on Monday, May 24, 2010. In previous years, mid-April was the beginning of fall registration and was at the same time as summer registration.
The change will help students in a variety of ways, explains KCC’s Dean of Enrollment Management and Registrar, Kay Keck, “By moving back the registration dates, students will be in a better financial position to enroll for classes. In previous years, when they were enrolling in April, their financial aid paperwork was not complete. In addition, due to the overlap in summer and fall payment plans, students were making two payments at once, which is a struggle for some.”
Keck also discussed how this change would allow time for prerequisite classes taken during the spring to record on the student's transcript so that they can enroll in the next level of classes. A final benefit is that the separate registration dates for fall and summer mean less confusion as students register for courses. “Overall, we think the change in dates will be very positive for our students and help them financially,” said Keck.

Kellogg Community College was founded in 1956 by the Battle Creek Board of Education, which operated it until 1970 when voters created an area wide college district. The college, situated on sites in Battle Creek, Albion (Eastern Academic Center), Coldwater (Grahl Center), Hastings (Fehsenfeld Center), and Fort Custer Industrial Park (Regional Manufacturing Technology Center), offers nearly 100 pre-professional college/university transfer curricula, approximately 40 occupational associate degree programs aimed toward job preparation, and related training for apprenticeships.
Kellogg Community College provides customized training services designed and delivered to area businesses and institutions and a wide range of lifelong learning programs or personal enrichment. Over the past several years, hundreds of small businesses have received specialized training for thousands of employees and dozens of small businesses and individuals through the College’s customized training programs.
The college was fully reaccredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools during the spring semester of 2002.
