    Outstanding. You can save yourself a lot of money going here, and if you work hard, you can find some pretty nice scholarships to transfer out.

    Books are very expensive from KCC, if you can, buy them online. If you have to buy them from the bookstore, they have a sell back program. You get a decent amount of money back when KCC buys your books back from you.

    Community college's primary advantage over state or private schools is--of course--its price. Two years at KCC would cost a student a fraction of expensive private schools, and as many who've migrated from other schools will say, the education is just the same, if not better.

    KCC is very generous with financial aid. If you need the money, they will give it to you. Included in financial aid consideration is also cost of living expenses, so most everyone who attends here actually receives more money than they need for tuition and books so you will have money for things like food, groceries, and gas.
