If you are pursuing a degree, official transcripts are required. Transcripts must be sent directly from the originating institution to KCC.
High school transcripts
Complete the transcript request form for the high school you last attended.
If you earned a General Educational Development (GED) certificate, you may submit it in place of your high school transcript. You can request a certificate from the appropriate regional office of education.
Were you home schooled? KCC accepts the equivalent of a high school diploma in a home school setting with proper documentation.
If you are pursuing a degree or would like to receive credit for college courses completed elsewhere, KCC must have on file official transcripts from colleges you've previously attended. Use the transcript request form for each college you have attended.
Courses you took at another college or university that pertain to your program of study may count toward your degree. To determine if these courses are eligible, submit a transcript evaluation request to the Admissions and Registration Office.
Foreign College Courses: If you are pursuing a degree or would like to receive college credit for college courses completed in a foreign country, please carefully review the information on this page. Courses you took at another college or university that pertain to your program of study may count toward your degree. To determine if these courses are eligible, submit a transcript evaluation request to KCC’s Admissions and Registration Office in addition to a course-by-course evaluation.
Foreign High School Courses: If you are a prospective international student (abroad or currently in F-1 status) or a permanent resident planning on utilizing financial aid: submit your foreign secondary school credentials/transcripts in a sealed envelope from the originating institution/high school, certified English translations, and an official evaluation to KCC's Office of Admission and Registration. Equivalency to a U.S. high school education must be noted on the evaluation. GPA is not required.
If you are a prospective international student (abroad or currently in F-1 status), please visit: KCC’s Steps to Enroll and contact Laura Gardner, KCC’s designated school official, at email@example.com or 815-802-8513 if you have questions/concerns.

- It is recommended that you request an evaluation of your transcripts by an evaluation agency prior to registering for courses at KCC. Registering prior to the completion of the official evaluation may have financial aid and course implications.
