New Student Relations - Welcome to KC!
Applying to Kilgore College is easy and free!
The Office of New Student Relations welcomes your application for admission and is here to help you with the process. Kilgore College accepts the ApplyTexas application for admission and has no application fee. Applications are accepted year round, but encourages you to apply early. (Note: Some KC programs such as those in the Allied Health fields, have limited enrollment and may require an additional department application once you are accepted for general admission.)
