Making fall enrollment easy

by President Box - July 13, 2020

Here we are months into the pandemic, and sometimes, the future does not seem any clearer than it did weeks ago. However, one thing you can be clear about is the importance of higher education. Don’t let the pandemic keep you from pursuing your dreams of a better career and a better life.

I certainly understand the hesitancy about going to college this fall. But here’s something you need to know: You can still go to college and stay safe at home by attending your local community college. Returning students, recent grads and unemployed adults can all find what they need at one of our 16 KCTCS colleges. And, you already know we offer the lowest tuition in Kentucky.

Whether you’re interested in taking general education classes and transferring to a university, earning an associate degree or enrolling in a short-term program and going directly to work, our colleges offer everything you need for careers in the real world. During this pandemic, we know how important our essential workers have been. You can get the education and skills you need to become part of these valued professions in health care, logistics, IT and many others.

To make your fall enrollment easier, all of our colleges are offering a special event the week of July 20 called Pathway to Enrollment. You can get all the help you need from advisors and admissions staff. If you need even more incentive to enroll during our event, keep in mind that everyone who attends is eligible to win a laptop or gift card.

Our fall classes will be offered in a variety of formats. This includes fully online classes as well as face-to-face classes and options that are a mixture of both. Face-to-face classes will have a strong online or remote instruction part, so if in-person classes must move online for a while the transition will be smooth. There are a variety of flexible options, including 16-, 12-, and 8-week sessions so you can create a schedule of classes that fits your schedule.

Our team is making sure our campuses are clean and sanitized to keep you as safe as possible. Masks or other face coverings will be required, and you’ll need to check your temperature before coming to class. Social distancing is a must and we have signs everywhere  as a reminder. We are following all CDC and state recommendations, so if you want a full run down on everything we’re doing, read our Welcome Back Plan.

Don’t put college on hold this fall. Research shows those with higher education levels are less likely to lose their jobs, so get started working toward your better life. Call or go online to make an appointment at your local KCTCS college and get enrolled.
