Welcome to Kankakee
Community College! We take great pride in our culture of caring, and we are
eager to get to know you, listen carefully as you share with us your goals and
dreams, and then help you achieve them. The KCC mission is “Enhancing quality of life through
learning,” and we do this by offering our students and community clients high
quality and rigorous academic and career programs. We also offer numerous
opportunities to connect with fellow students, faculty and staff. From personal
experience, I know that when we work together, we achieve much more than we
thought possible. During your academic journey at KCC, you will find people
and programs that meet you where you are. From there, you can follow a path
toward immediate entry into a career, or continue on to a four-year bachelor’s
degree. We offer a quality education at a fair cost, and we will help you meet
your goals. There are a lot of great things happening at KCC. If you
haven’t already, please visit us and begin the conversation about your future.
You can start with an information request at info.kcc.edu. Thank you!
