Do I need to apply to KC to take a CE course?

No. Community Education courses are open to interested persons without formal admission to Kilgore College. Generally, there are no entrance requirements. Course descriptions include prerequisites when appropriate.


Tuition may be paid by cash, check or money order.  We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover.  There will be a $2 non-refundable convenience fee charged for credit card payments taken over the telephone. Checks should be made payable to Kilgore College for the amount of tuition only.  Please include your driver’s license number and telephone number on your check.

Books and Materials for CE Courses

Instructors will discuss materials and textbooks during the first class session. Books are available through the college bookstore located in the Student Center or at Kilgore College-Longview for Longview classes only. Some courses listed in the class schedule do not require textbooks or supplies. Supplies and texts are not included in the course fees unless stated in the course description. Books or supplies should not be purchased until you know exactly what the instructor will require.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

In compliance with guidelines from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Kilgore College awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to students successfully completing various noncredit courses sponsored by the college. A CEU is officially defined as "ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education adult or extension experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction." The student should not interpret the CEU as a substitute for college credit. The CEU is a means of recording and accounting for various continuing education activities that a student has completed.

Refund Schedule - Drops and Withdrawals

Class Cancellation:

Kilgore College reserves the right to cancel any course if enrollment is insufficient. Kilgore College will make every attempt to prevent undue hardship on students. The decision to conduct or to cancel the class is made as soon as possible before the first day of class. This provides every opportunity for sufficient enrollment.  Students will receive a 100% refund of tuition if the class is canceled.

Withdrawing from Class and Refunds:

To formally withdraw from a Community Education & Workforce Development class, a student must contact the location where the course is offered, either by phone or in person during working hours. Phone numbers are listed under “3 Easy Ways to Register” on the back cover of this catalog.  Mailed notification will be accepted and the postmark date will be the effective date for refunding. Refunds will be made within four to six weeks following the request. To receive your refund in check form, you will have to pick up the check at the Cashier’s Office in the Devall Student Center on the Kilgore campus. To have the refund check mailed to you, you must call (903) 983-8108 to have your address verified.  If the student has a current or active Ranger Card account, the refund will be credited to the card account automatically – which will also take four to six weeks.
