Orientation at Kilgore College is a time for new students and their families to become better acquainted with the college, its campuses and communities. There is time to meet college faculty and staff, as well as other students. Orientation staff and student leaders spend time with you and make every effort to make you feel welcome and ready to begin your college career.

Who should come to Orientation?

Orientation is required for all first time college students in order to register for classes. This applies to all students who have not earned college credits prior to the Fall 2011 session.


1.  Must be a high school graduate with a final transcript at registrar’s office
2.  Must have the meningitis shot record on file at the registrar’s office
3.  Must have Accuplacer or THEA test scores on file in the registrar’s office

I have applied but don't have a student ID yet. What do I do?

If you have applied to Kilgore College, but have not received an acceptance letter in the mail with your Student ID number, visit Campus Connect and get your ID number there. Follow the instructions on the left-hand side of Campus Connect. Once you receive your Student ID, visit this page again and register for either On-Campus Orientation or Online Orientation.

Why come to Orientation?
