KLAMATH FALLS — Klamath Community College is holding a two-day College Info Drop-in event next week to answer questions new or returning students have about registering for classes and fall term course options.

The event is Sept. 9 and 10 in the KCC Conference Center, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.

“This event is an excellent opportunity for recent high school graduates and current high school students interested in earning college credit, or for anyone interested in continuing or beginning their education,” said Bill Jennings, interim vice president of Student Services at KCC.


During the event, new and returning students can drop in either day to receive information about fall term, course registration, financial aid, career services, and on-campus student resources.

Jennings said financial aid staff will be on-hand to answer attendees’ questions about funding for college and to help navigate the process for filing an application for federal student aid. Student Services staff will also be available to answer questions about selecting classes and will assist with registration.

Attendees can also visit with KCC Career Services Center staff, who can help new students determine a degree or certificate program that will fit their strengths. At the event, students can also apply for TRiO, a federally funded program that assists low-income, first-generation, and disabled students at no cost.

Student-led tours will be available upon request and social distancing standards will be upheld throughout the event.

Students who enroll at the event will receive a KCC gift package, along with individually packaged refreshments and snacks, and other KCC swag.

In accordance with state guidelines, students, staff, and faculty who are on campus are required to wear a face covering in any indoor campus setting, including classrooms and labs, unless an exemption as outlined by the Oregon Health Authority is met.

Face coverings are being used in conjunction with other safety measures, such as physical distancing, proper hand washing, and daily self-checks that include monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms before visiting campus. Anyone exhibiting symptoms should stay at their residence and contact a health provider.

KCC’s fall term starts Sept. 28. Fall term course delivery will include online and in-person classes. In-person classes will be limited in size to ensure proper physical distancing. Students who plan to take in-person fall term courses are encouraged to register early.
