Are classes online or in-person?

For the most part, KCC will is back to it's normal schedule. In-person, online and a "hybrid" of both are being offered. The class schedule has details on how each class is being offered.

Where do I ask questions about taking classes online?

Canvas is the learning management system used for KCC's online, hybrid and enhanced face-to-face courses. To learn how a course using Canvas works: log in to Canvas using your KCC username and password. When you log in for the first time, there is an invitation to take the Canvas student orientation course. Click on the announcement or the Help link in the lower left corner of the Canvas screen at any time to enroll.

Also note, lab and technology fees are the same for online and in-person classes because the college still incurs a cost to present coursework — whether it is in person or through remote learning.

Are counseling services still available to KCC students?

Yes, Transformative Growth Counselors are available.  Call 630-423-6010 or visit www.transformativegrowth.org. Tell them you are a KCC student.

Additional referral resources are on the Counseling and Referral Services page.

Effective Aug. 17th, KCC is tracking cases of students and employees confirmed to have contracted COVID-19. This chart will be updated as the college becomes aware of new confirmed cases.

The chart shows positive cases for individuals who have recently been on campus or potentially in close contact with others on campus.

In each case, the area undergoes additional deep cleaning and all individuals with potential contact are communicated with directly.

Anyone experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms as outlined by the CDC are strongly encouraged to stay home.
