History:

Kilgore College is a publicly supported, two-year, comprehensive community college offering postsecondary educational opportunities.

In 1935 Kilgore College was the idea of Mr. W. L. Dodson and the community of Kilgore, Texas. We have come a long way since the early part of the century and today we are recognized as one of the finest two-year institutions in the South. The main campus is located in Gregg County and continues to serve many students from surrounding counties. In the beginning, the curriculum was designed to serve university-bound students; but today, the college also offers education and training in wide variety of workforce programs. We are also the home of an excellent athletic program, the world famous Kilgore College Rangerettes, the National Championship Lady Rangers Basketball Team, and The East Texas Oil Museum.


Mission Statement:

Kilgore College provides a learner-centered environment that focuses on student access, success and completion via collaborative partnerships.

  • Kilgore College promotes access through its open-door admission, distance learning opportunities, dual credit courses, developmental education, continuing education, and comprehensive financial aid programs.
  • Kilgore College promotes success through high quality innovative instruction and holistic student support services and activities.
  • Kilgore College promotes completion by providing a foundation for students to flourish either through university transfer or entry into the workforce as highly skilled and technologically advanced employees.
  • Kilgore College leads and promotes partnerships through outreach to area schools and universities, small business/entrepreneurial expansion, adult education and literacy, responsiveness to economic development needs, and promotion of social and cultural advancement.

The mission statement of Kilgore College is consistent with the Texas Education Code 130.0011, which states that the mission of public junior colleges shall be two-year institutions primarily serving their local taxing districts and service areas in Texas and offering vocational, technical, and academic courses for certification or associate degrees, as well as continuing education, remedial and compensatory education consistent with open-admissions policies

Approved by KC Board of Trustees December 12, 2016


Vision Statement:

We will lead through instruction, technology, and cultural development - each characterized by creativity, innovation, and ingenuity. We will exhibit caring in all our relationships as we serve our students and our community.


Civility Statement:

Students are expected to assist in maintaining an environment that is conducive to learning. Inappropriate or distractive behavior is prohibited in order to assure that everyone has an opportunity to gain from time spent in the course. Should a disruptive incident occur, the faculty member in charge may remove the student. Students have the right to appeal.


Nondiscrimination Statement:

Kilgore College seeks to provide equal educational and employment opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status, veteran status or genetic information. Residence halls are specifically designated, however, for male or female occupancy. Kilgore College is striving to provide facilities that are barrier-free for students who have physical challenges.


Campus Locations:

Kilgore College's main campus is at 1100 Broadway, Kilgore, TX, in Gregg County. Kilgore, a city of approximately 14,000, is in the northeast section of the state commonly referred to as the Piney Woods. This area is one of the most scenic in Texas with its pine and hardwood forests, lakes, rivers, streams, and hills. The area is also rich in natural resources. Kilgore lies in the middle of what was once one of the most productive oil fields in the continental United States.

Located four miles south of Interstate 20 on US Hwy. 259, Kilgore is 120 miles east of Dallas, TX, 70 miles west of Shreveport, LA, and 10 miles southwest of Longview, TX, a city of over 82,000 residents.
KC-Longview, at 300 S. High in Longview, also offers day and evening courses for college transfer, occupational education courses, and adult and continuing education courses. Kilgore College offers courses in selected academic transfer, workforce, and adult and continuing education programs at area public schools.

  • The East Texas Oil Museum
  • The Rangerette Museum and Showcase
  • Bert E. Woodruff Adult Education Center
    • East Texas Police Academy
    • Fire Academy
  • Spear Firing Range

Admissions

Admission Forms:

Kilgore College (KC) welcomes applications for admission. Kilgore College has no application fee and accepts the ApplyTexas application or the myKC application for admission (www.kilgore.edu). All other admissions information is available online or from the Office of Admissions and Registrar, Kilgore College, 1100 Broadway, Kilgore, TX 75662-3204, phone (903) 983-8209. Individuals who do not enroll in the semester for which they applied will be required to complete a reactivation form or a new admissions application.

General Admission Policy:

The college has an "open door" admission policy ensuring that all persons who can profit from post-secondary education will have an opportunity to enroll. Admission to the college does not imply admission to all programs. Applicants to any of the health occupations programs must meet special entrance requirements and complete an application form for the desired program. Specific requirements for these programs are explained under "Health Science Programs".

General Admission:

KC offers the following general admission categories:

  • Freshman/GED: High school/home school graduates or GED recipients with no previous college coursework (dual credit courses do not count as previous college coursework for admission purposes)
  • Transfer: Students who have attended another institution of higher education after high school graduation
  • Transient: Visiting students who are attending another institution of higher education and plan to attend KC for a single term or the summer with the intention of returning to their home institution
  • Readmission: Former KC students seeking readmission

The college also offers special admission options.

All materials required for admission to the college must be on file in the Office of Admissions and Registrar prior to registering for classes.

Admissions Application Priority Dates:

Kilgore College encourages all applicants to start the admissions process early.  Students submitting applications and completing the admissions process by the respective admissions priority date can take full advantage of early registration opportunities.  Students registering early are more likely to get the courses they desire on their preferred dates and times.  Later applicants may find less flexibility in scheduling.  Kilgore College’s Admissions Application Priority Dates are as follows:

  • Fall Semester: July 1
  • Spring Semester: November 1
  • Summer Terms: April 1

Transcripts for Admission Purposes:

Any reference to high school or college transcripts submitted for admission means that an official transcript is required. To be considered "official", transcripts must:

  • Be issued within the last 6 months and bear the signature of the registrar and/or seal of the issuing institution
  • Be submitted directly from the issuing institution to KC (hand-carried transcripts may be considered if in an unopened, sealed college/high school letterhead envelope)
  • High school and home school transcripts without a graduation date are not considered official. A final transcript with graduation date must be provided after the graduation date
  • Unofficial transcripts may be considered on an individual and temporary basis, but official transcripts must be received in the first two weeks of the student’s first semester of attendance
  • Lacking academic credentials will result in a hold on the student’s account preventing future registration and the release of official KC transcripts

All transcripts submitted become the property of KC and cannot be returned. Records of students who do not enroll may be destroyed after one year.

Freshmen:

Students who have a diploma from an accredited public or private high school; who have completed a nontraditional secondary education course of study in a non-accredited private school setting, including a home school; or who have successfully completed a Certificate of High School Equivalency (formerly called the GED) and who have attempted no college (other than dual credit coursework) must meet the following requirements:

  1. Submit an Application for Admission as early as possible prior to registering for classes.
  2. Submit an official high school transcript with graduation date or proof of  obtaining a Certificate of High School Equivalency. Home School transcripts must be signed by the home school teacher or administrator and notarized by a notary public.
  3. Submit Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment test scores or submit proof of exemption from TSI.
  4. Students who took college courses for dual credit at a school other than Kilgore College must submit an official college transcript in addition to the high school/home school transcript.

Kilgore College will not recognize a student as a high school graduate who has obtained a diploma through a school or online program that requires only payment of a fee with little or no coursework requirements. Determination of the legitimacy of these diplomas will be at the discretion of the Office of Admissions and Registrar. Graduates of such programs will be considered for admission on an individual approval basis (see Individual Approval section below).

Transfer:

Students who are transferring from another college or university must meet the following requirements:

  1. Submit an Application for Admission as early as possible prior to registering for classes
  2. Verify Texas Success Initiative (TSI) status and take the TSI assessment if scores or proof of exemption is not provided.
  3. Submit to KC an official transcript directly from each college or university attended.  

Note: Transfer students meeting the above requirements who are seeking a KC degree will be informed of the amount of credit which will transfer to Kilgore College as soon as possible and no later than the end of the first academic term in which they are enrolled. However, students seeking to transfer credit from non-regionally accredited institutions must submit a "petition for transfer credit" form. Students must also furnish supporting documents to substantiate that the course outcomes and faculty credentials are equivalent to those of KC courses, as described in the form.

Readmission:

Readmission is available to formerly enrolled students who have not enrolled in KC for one or more long semesters (spring or fall term) and who wish to return. Students who have been away from KC for one long semester (spring or fall term) may submit a reactivation form available in the Office of Admissions and Registrar.  Students who have been away from KC for more than one long semester must reapply for admission.  Whether these students were forced to leave (academic or disciplinary suspension) or chose to leave, they must meet the following requirements:

  1. Submit a new Application for Admission or Reactivation Form as applicable as early as possible prior to registering for classes. We recommend students apply by the appropriate application priority date.
  2. Submit an official transcript from every college or university attended since the last enrollment at KC as applicable.

Transient (Visiting) Students:

Transient students are those pursuing a degree elsewhere who attend Kilgore College for a long semester (fall or spring), December Mini, May Mini or summer terms and intend to return to their previous college or university. Students must be enrolled at their prior institution in the long semester (fall or spring) immediately preceding admission as a Kilgore College transient student.  Traditionally, transient students enroll while home for the winter or summer breaks or for a single long semester.

Transient students are limited to one long semester (fall or spring) the December Mini, or May Mini and/or summer terms.  Previous transient students are required to reapply if they return as a transient student for a future term.  Should a transient student decide to continue at Kilgore College immediately following the transient term, the student must reapply as a transfer student and meet all transfer admission requirements.

When applying for admission, select the appropriate semester. December Mini students should use the spring admissions application.  May Mini students should select the summer admissions application. The applicant should select the Non Degree-Seeking Academic major option. Also indicate you are a transient-seeking a degree elsewhere on the application. We recommend you apply by the appropriate application priority date. Students must request an official transcript from the school which they currently attending be sent to Kilgore College. Proof of other prerequisites may be required if the student has attended more than one college.

All visiting students should consult their academic advisor at their home institution to ensure applicability of courses prior to KC registration. It is the responsibility of the transient student to request an official KC transcript be sent to their home institution: https://www.kilgore.edu/current-students/registration-transcripts/transcript-request 

Transient students cannot use financial aid awarded at their home institution at Kilgore College.

Request for Readmission Under the Second Chance Policy:

Section 51.931 of the Texas Education Code provides Texas residents with the "Right to an Academic Fresh Start". A student who is returning to Kilgore College after an absence of at least 10 years may seek a fresh start by requesting approval to use the Second Chance Policy upon application for readmission. Under this policy, all Kilgore College coursework completed 10 or more years prior to readmission is eliminated from computation of the grade point average (GPA). None of the coursework can be used to meet degree or prerequisite requirements, though the work remains on the student's record. In addition, coursework cannot be used to satisfy Texas Success Initiative requirements. Further, no credit will be given for transfer coursework earned 10 or more years ago. A student readmitted under this policy is placed on academic probation.

The student must seek application of this policy when applying to return to KC. The policy must be used on or before the last day of the semester or term in which the student returns to school.

Financial aid and veterans benefits may be affected by this policy. Acceptability of this policy by other colleges is solely at the discretion of the receiving institution. Additional information about this policy is available from the Office of Admissions and Registrar. Phone (903) 983-8606.

  • Additional English proficiency testing may be required prior to registration.  During the entire period of study at KC, each international student is required to purchase health and accident medical insurance.

International Application Priority Dates:

Kilgore College encourages all applicants to start the admissions process early. Applications submitted after the respective international admissions priority date will not be guaranteed acceptance for that semester. Kilgore College’s Admissions Application Priority Dates for international students are as follows:

  • Fall Semester: July 15
  • Spring Semester: November 15
  • Summer Semester: March 15

Health Science Programs:

Health science programs have additional entrance requirements and recommend early application. Admission to the college in no way implies or guarantees entrance to the professional health science programs. Prior to making application to any professional health science program, the student should contact the health science counselor at the Counseling Center, located in the Devall Student Center at (903) 983-8184 or at www.kilgore.edu . Entrance procedures are designed to ensure fairness to each applicant. To ensure orderly and timely progress toward acceptance, progression, and completion of the desired health science program, the student is responsible for seeking advice, for knowing and meeting requirements of the health science program of interest, for enrolling in courses appropriate to that program, and for taking courses in the proper sequence.

Note: An applicant must show evidence of good physical and mental health. If accepted into a health science program, the student must submit a medical record and certification of immunizations for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), tetanus, and, in most cases, Hepatitis B. Updated immunizations are an integral part of health care and provide protection against these communicable diseases.

Auditing Courses:

The Office of Admissions and Registrar may grant a student permission to audit a course for special reasons. Courses involving computers, equipment, labs, clinicals, etc. also require departmental approval. Such permission gives the student only the privilege of observing and does not include submitting papers or taking tests. A student desiring to audit a course fills out an application for admission, submits official transcripts, completes an audit request form, and registers in the Office of Admissions and Registrar only after regular registration and on a space-available basis. Audit students are required to meet the same admissions requirements as all other students, with the exception of placement testing. Tuition and fees for auditing are the same as those fees charged for enrolling in a course for credit. The college will not refund tuition and fees paid to audit a course.


Immunizations:

The college highly recommends that each student take precautionary measures by keeping inoculations current. According to the Texas Department of Health, those born in 1957 or later may not have been properly immunized. The single dose measles immunization that many received was inadequate. The classroom setting increases the chance of exposure. If a student was born after January 2, 1957, the student should see his or her physician or visit a public health clinic for proper immunization against measles (two doses of measles vaccine administered on or after the first birthday and at least 30 days apart), rubella (one dose of rubella vaccine on or after the first birthday), and mumps (one dose of mumps vaccine on or after the first birthday). The tetanus vaccine is effective for about ten years and should be boosted at ten-year intervals in combination with the diphtheria vaccine. It is common for older adults to develop tetanus because many have not received booster shots.

Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination Requirement:

Bacterial Meningitis is a serious, potentially deadly disease that can progress extremely fast - so take utmost caution. It is an inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord. The bacteria that cause meningitis can also infect the blood. This disease strikes about 3,000 Americans each year, including 100-125 on college campuses, leading to 5-15 deaths among college students every year. There is a treatment, but those who survive may develop severe health problems or disabilities. All entering students under 22 years of age must provide documentation of receiving an initial bacterial meningitis vaccination dose or booster within the last 5 years. All new, transfer, or former students who are returning must show proof of having the vaccination at least 10 days prior to the start of the semester. Students may not register until documentation of vaccination is on file. Proof of the bacterial meningitis vaccination must be provided to the Office of Admissions and Registrar (provide copies, not originals). Kilgore College will not return vaccination records submitted nor provide copies for use at other schools. Records may be mailed, faxed, or delivered in person.

Exemptions from Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination Requirement:

Students age 22 and older are exempt. A student is not required to submit evidence of receiving the vaccination against bacterial meningitis if the student, or a parent or guardian of a student, submits to the institution an affidavit or a certificate signed by a physician who is duly registered and licensed to practice medicine in the United States, in which it is stated that, in the physician's opinion, the vaccination required would be injurious to the health and well-being of the student.

The only means by which a student can object to vaccination for enrollment purposes is to use the Texas Department of State Health Services' current, official form for conscientious objection. Complete the online form at https://webds.dshs.state.tx.us/immcojc/. After entering all the requested information, print the form, sign it, date it and submit the form to the Office of Admissions and Registrar before registering for courses.

Requirements of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI)

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requires that all students entering a public college or university for the first time be tested in the areas of reading, writing and math before registering for any college-level classes unless exempt. Students are encouraged to test as early as possible.

Kilgore College Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Plan:

  1. A student who has a deficiency in one or more areas will be given an individualized plan that lists the developmental coursework that is required for that student to become college ready. Students who score at ABE levels 3 and 4 will enroll in Basic Academic Skills Education (BASE) courses in the appropriate areas of English, reading, and/or math to improve foundation skills.
  2. Students must be continuously enrolled in all mandated areas of developmental coursework until they complete the success initiative in all three areas
  3. Excessive Developmental Hours: A student is allowed to enroll for a total of 27 hours of developmental courses at the normal tuition rate. Developmental hours exceeding the 27 hour college career limit will be assessed an additional $70 per semester hour charge.

Exemptions:

The following students shall be exempt from the requirements of this title, whereby exempt students shall not be required to provide any additional demonstration of college readiness and shall be allowed to enroll in any entry-level freshman course as defined in §4.53(12) of this title (relating to Definitions):

The following students are exempt from the provisions of the Texas Success Initiative:

Tuition and Fees by Residency Classification

Residency Classification:

Texas Education Code Section 54.052 outlines the guidelines for determining Texas residency classification.  Guidelines for determining in-district and out-of-district classification are based on the Kilgore College Tax District and policies of the Kilgore College Board of Trustees, and are detailed below.  Tuition is based on residency status and the number of semester hours in which a student enrolls. The following define the types of residency status:

  • An in-district student is a resident of the State of Texas domiciled within the Kilgore College District composed of the school districts of Kilgore, Sabine, Gladewater, White Oak, Leverett's Chapel, Overton, and West Rusk County Consolidated. Kilgore College taxes must be assessed on the residential property where the student is domiciled and provided to the Office of Admissions and Registrar when requested.
  • An out-of-district student is a resident of the State of Texas domiciled outside the Kilgore College District.
  • A non-resident student is a resident outside the state of Texas, including international students.

Reclassification of Residency Status:

The college will require the student to sign an oath of residency as part of the admission process. It is the student's responsibility to use the proper residence classification. If there is any question as to right of classification as a resident of Texas or the Kilgore College District, it is the student's obligation, prior to or at the time of registration, to raise the question with the Office of Admissions and Registrar.

The student should report any change in residency status to the Office of Admissions and Registrar before registration. Likewise, a student classified as a non-resident will remain in that status until such time as the student has requested reclassification and the Office of Admissions and Registrar has officially approved the request. If inaccurate or fraudulent information is provided by the student to document residency status, the student will be held liable for repayment of any tuition/fees that were under-charged as a result of that information. Reclassification requests must be initiated by the student. Residency status changes are not made automatically.

For reclassification to be effective for a specific semester, the request for reclassification and any documentation must be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Registrar on or before the official reporting date (ORD) of the semester. The ORD may be found in the college academic calendar or by calling the Office of Admissions and Registrar. The student should direct all questions concerning residency status to the Office of Admissions and Registrar, located in the Devall Student Center. Phone (903) 983-8606.

Documentation of Basis for Texas Residency Status:

Classification as a Texas resident requires that the student substantiate residence in Texas for the immediate twelve months preceding registration. Factors other than time in the state may affect residency classification. For example, the legal home address of a student who is dependent for income tax purposes is considered to be the address of the parent(s) claiming the student. Also, students who come to Texas for the purpose of education are ineligible to claim Texas residency for tuition purposes as long as they remain in school. A complete evaluation of individual circumstances is provided at the time of application for admission. Additional information is available from the Office of Admissions and Registrar (903) 983-8202. In addition to the core residency questionnaire, documents acceptable for this purpose may include, but are not limited to, an official Texas high school transcript, the employer's statement of date of employment, lease agreement, a permanent Texas driver's license (at least one year old), and a Texas voter registration.

Documentation of Basis for In-District Residency Status:

All Texas residents are classified as out-of-district until sufficient information is on file to verify in-district residency. The legal home address of a student who is dependent for income tax purposes is the address of the parent/guardian claiming the student. Therefore, the residency status of a dependent student is based upon the residence of the parent/guardian. EXCEPTION: If a parent/guardian who does not claim the student for income tax purposes lives in-district, the student may be granted in-district residency (proof of parental status/guardianship and in-district residence are required). Students who are independent for income tax purposes must establish their own residence in the district. Students who are under age 24 must provide proof of independence. Documents acceptable for verifying in-district residency may include, but are not limited to, a permanent Texas driver's license, a property tax receipt, a lease agreement, and a utility bill. Additional information is available from the Office of Admissions and Registrar (903) 983-8202.

Waiver for Property Ownership:

The KC Board of Trustees has waived the difference between out-of-district resident rates and in-district rates for a person and his or her dependents who own residential real estate in the Kilgore College District. Additional information for required documentation is available from the Office of Admissions and Registrar (903) 983-8202.

Refund Policy

In order to receive a refund of tuition and fees, a student must officially drop or withdraw through the Office of Admissions and Registrar. The college will refund tuition and fees for courses dropped or for withdrawal from school within the timetable published in the online Registration Guide. Refunds will be issued in the same semester as the withdrawal. If a scheduled course fails to materialize, the college will return 100% of tuition and fees, with the exception of late and matriculation fees. A matriculation fee will be charged for students who enroll in courses and then completely withdraw from those courses for a particular semester. The college will not issue a refund to a student who does not have a clear financial record with the college.

See the current online Registration Guide for actual dates of check disbursements.

Note: Class day is defined as the day the semester or session is designated to begin and each school day thereafter. The above timetable applies to all refunds, including refunds to early-registered students who withdraw before classes start. No refunds will be made earlier than this schedule.


Room and Board Fees:

ACADEMIC POLICIES 

This section contains information about the general academic policies of the college. Students should review this information carefully when they enroll for courses at KC.



Academic Honesty Statement 

It is the responsibility of students and faculty to help maintain scholastic integrity at the college by refusing to participate in or tolerate scholastic dishonesty. Plagiarism and other forms of academic dishonesty undermine the very purpose of the college and diminish the value of an education. Specific sanctions for academic dishonesty are outlined in the Kilgore College Student Handbook available in the Office of the Vice President of Student Development, located in the Devall Student Center. Phone (903) 983-8189.


Student Records 

Access (FERPA):

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records.

These rights include:

  1. The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days of the day the college receives a request for access.
  2. The right to request the amendment of the student's education records that the student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student's privacy rights under FERPA.
  3. The right to provide written consent before the college discloses personally identifiable information from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. 
  4. Students seeking to exercise these rights should contact the Kilgore College Office of Admissions and Registrar, located in the Devall Student Center to complete and submit the appropriate forms.
  5. The college discloses education records without a student's prior written consent under the FERPA exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the college in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); contractors, volunteers, and other non-employees performing institutional services and functions; a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. Certain offices at Kilgore College utilize student assistants in fulfilling professional responsibilities.  These individuals receive FERPA training and are classified as school officials when working with student records. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for the college. Upon request, the college also discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, is currently enrolled, or has been enrolled, as long as the records relate to the student's enrollment or transfer to the other school.

In compliance with FERPA, the college may release to the general public the following types of directory information without the written consent of the student:

1.  Name, address, telephone listings
2.  Date, place of birth
3.  Enrollment status, such as full-time/part-time
4.  Classification
5.  Major field of study
6.  Dates of attendance, awards received, degrees earned
7.  Most recent previous educational institution attended
8.  Weight and height of members of athletic teams
9.  Participation in officially recognized activities and sports
10.  Photographs and other electronic images including audio and video

By making a written request to the Office of Admissions and Registrar, the student may request that this information be withheld from the public. Students have the right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the college to comply with the requirements of FERPA. Complaints should be addressed to:

Family Policy Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20202-5920

As of January 3, 2012, the U.S. Department of Education's FERPA regulations expand the circumstances under which your education records and personally identifiable information (PII) contained in such records - including your Social Security Number, grades, or other private information - may be accessed without your consent. First, the U.S. Comptroller General, the U.S. Attorney General, the U.S. Secretary of Education, or state and local education authorities ("Federal and State Authorities") may allow access to your records and PII without your consent to any third party designated by a Federal or State Authority to evaluate a federal- or state-supported education program. The evaluation may relate to any program that is "principally engaged in the provision of education," such as early childhood education and job training, as well as any program that is administered by an education agency or institution. Second, Federal and State Authorities may allow access to your education records and PII without your consent to researchers performing certain types of studies, in certain cases even when we object to or do not request such research. Federal and State Authorities must obtain certain use-restriction and data security promises from the entities that they authorize to receive your PII, but the Authorities need not maintain direct control over such entities. In addition, in connection with Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems, State Authorities may collect, compile, permanently retain, and share without your consent PII from your education records, and they may track your participation in education and other programs by linking such PII to other personal information about you that they obtain from other Federal or State data sources, including workforce development, unemployment insurance, child welfare, juvenile justice, military service, and migrant student records systems.

Transcript Regulations:

The Office of Admissions and Registrar issues official transcripts according to the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. This office will not honor a transcript request without the student's signature unless the transcript is being sent to another college for educational purposes. During peak periods such as during commencement and registration, the student should make transcript requests three weeks in advance. Receiving institutions require official transcripts from each institution a student has attended, even though transfer work may be posted to the KC transcript for reference. The student must clear all financial and other obligations to the college before the college will release the transcript.

Kilgore College Permanent Record:

Each Kilgore College student enrolled in credit courses beyond the official reporting date of any semester or term establishes a permanent record. A student's permanent record may include personal and academic information. Student permanent records are housed in the central computer system and in other permanent storage. The central computer system staff is responsible for the technological maintenance of permanent records, and the Office of Admissions and Registrar staff is responsible for updates to student permanent records.

A transcript (copy) of the permanent record may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Registrar at no charge.

Reinstatement Policy:

After a semester begins and under certain circumstances, a formerly enrolled student may be reinstated in their semester courses if the student was dropped in error or for not meeting expected deadlines or policies.  Reinstatement is not automatic, and a student seeking reinstatement should visit the Office of Admissions and Registrar to request reinstatement. A Petition for Reinstatement form and applicable supporting documentation will be required. Penalties and fees may apply.


Student Classification:

The student's classification is based on cumulative hours passed (not counting hours currently enrolled.) A student is classified as follows:

  • Freshman: Student who has 0-29 semester credit hours
  • Sophomore: Student who has 30-72 semester credit hours
  • Unclassified: Student who has more than 72 semester credit hours
  • Part-time: Student enrolled in fewer than 12 semester hours in any semester
  • Full-time: Student who is enrolled in a minimum of 12 semester hours in any semester

Note 1: A student’s term grade point average and full-time/part-time status are determined by the number of hours registered in a given term and may include developmental hours.  The student’s cumulative/career grade point average, hours earned, and classification are calculated excluding developmental hours.

Note 2: In order to meet Federal Student Loans Program Enrollment Certification requirements at KC, any student who is enrolled in a major which has a major code of RNSA or RNSB and who is enrolled for 6-11 hours, which must include courses entitled RNSG and which relate to clinical experience as defined by the Dean of Math, Science and Health Science, will be considered as a full-time student at KC. This policy applies only to those students who have federal student loans and is only for enrollment certification for student loan requirement. The policy does not apply to any other federal or state grant program at KC.


Course Credit 

Course credit is based on the semester hour unit. A typical lecture course that meets three times each week during a long semester carries three semester hours of credit while a course that meets more hours during the week or has an assigned laboratory may carry four or more hours of credit. The second digit in the course number indicates the number of semester hours that a student is granted for successfully completing that course.


Course Transfer: 

Transfer of Credit to KC:

Transfer of credit from another college or university to KC involves consideration of accreditation, comparability of course work, and applicability of that course work to a KC degree program. Transfer work for students who already have a college degree, or for those not seeking a degree, may not be evaluated. The college will receive transfer credit from another college or university according to the following guidelines:

1.Credit for courses in which a passing grade ("D" or better) has been earned may be transferred to KC from colleges and universities accredited through recognized regional accrediting associations. It is not the policy of KC to transfer credits from any institution not so accredited.

2.The college will consider course work completed at colleges and universities outside the U.S. on an individual basis.

3. A student attempting to transfer credit from another accredited college or university must furnish Kilgore College with an official transcript(s) prior to the end of the student's first academic term. Kilgore College students completing courses as a transient student at another institution should provide official transcripts immediately upon completion of the course. Upon receipt of the official transcript(s), the Office of Admissions and Registrar will complete a course-by-course evaluation as needed no later than the end of the first academic term in which the student is enrolled. Students may view transfer coursework posted to their KC transcript in myKC. If an official transcript(s) is not received as stated above, the student will not be allowed to enroll in additional semesters until the information is provided.

4.Transferred coursework may be posted to a KC student transcript for reference, but transfer grades are not included in the KC grade point average calculation.

5.Kilgore College accepts credit earned at other institutions by advanced placement examinations or through experiential learning under the same conditions as credit earned by traditional course work.

Transfer of Credit from KC to Other Colleges and Universities

Transfer of credit from KC to other colleges and universities is usually accomplished without difficulty. It is the responsibility of the student, however, to determine prior to registration if the courses will transfer. Transfer of specific courses normally depends upon the applicability of the completed work toward a degree plan specified by the receiving college or university. Therefore, the student should plan any KC program of study to parallel, as nearly as possible, the requirements of the program at the college or university to which the student plans to transfer. A library of catalogs of most colleges and universities to which students might want to transfer is available in the counseling center. The counseling center maintains course articulation on conversion charts for many Texas institutions of higher learning. These cross-reference charts enable the students to determine the course equivalent at the college or university to which they plan to transfer. Counseling assistance is available to students who want more information about transferring to another college or university.

Note: Senior institutions treat transfer grades in various ways. While the grade "C" is usually considered minimal for transfer, the specific average required varies with the admissions policy established by the receiving institution. Some colleges and universities accept "D" grades if the student's overall grade average is "C" or better. Certain institutions require that the student repeat any course in which the student earned a "D" grade; some receive the "I" as an "F" grade.

Guarantee for Transfer Credit

If any student completes the KC Core Curriculum, any Texas college or university is required to accept it in total. KC guarantees to its Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of Arts in Teaching graduates and to other students, who have met the requirements of a 62/63-credit-hour transfer plan, the transferability of course credits to those Texas colleges or universities that cooperate in the development of KC Articulation Guides. If such courses are rejected by the college or the university, KC offers the student tuition-free alternative courses which are acceptable to the college or university.
Special conditions that apply to the guarantee are as follows:

1.Courses must be identified by the receiving university as transferable and applicable in Kilgore College Articulation Guides dated 1991-92 or later.

2.The catalog of the receiving institution states the total number of credits accepted in transfer, grades required, relevant grade point average, and duration of transferability.

3.The guarantee applies to courses included in a written transfer plan that must be filed with KC. The plan includes the institution to which the student will transfer the baccalaureate major, degree sought, and the date such a decision was made.

Transfer Dispute Resolution

Transfer disputes may arise when a lower-division course is not accepted for credit by a Texas institution of higher education. To qualify as a dispute the course(s) in question must be offered by the institution denying the credit (receiving institution), or in the case of upper-level institutions, must be published in a lower-division course accepted for fulfilling lower-level requirements. For community colleges, the course(s) must be listed in the Lower-Division Academic Course Guide Manual, and be offered at the receiving institution. Additionally, the sending institution must challenge the receiving institution's denial of credit.

The following procedures shall be followed by public institutions of higher education in the resolution of credit transfer disputes involving lower division courses:

1.If an institution of higher education does not accept course credit earned by a student at another institution of higher education, the receiving institution shall give written notice to the student and to the sending institution that transfer of the course credit is denied.

2.The two institutions and the student shall attempt to resolve the transfer of the course credit in accordance with Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board rules and/or its guidelines.

3.If the transfer dispute is not resolved to the satisfaction of the student or the sending institution within 45 days after the date the student received written notice of denial, the institution whose credit is denied for transfer shall notify the Commissioner of Higher Education of the denial.

4.The Commissioner of Higher Education or the Commissioner's designee shall make the final determination about the dispute concerning the transfer of course credit and give written notice of the determination to the involved student and institutions. Problems that occur during the transfer process will not always be categorized as disputes, and will not follow dispute procedures and guidelines. Problems are clearly within the jurisdiction of the receiving institution.

Non-Traditional Credit 

Students admitted to KC may earn academic credit for learning achieved through experiences that they have completed before enrolling. The college assesses a fee for administering examinations and a fee for posting to the transcript credit awarded.

Credit for Experience

Credit may be awarded toward completion of an Associate of Applied Science degree or a Certificate of Completion for learning achieved through experiences outside typical educational settings when it is consistent with the educational objectives of the student, the requirements of the curriculum, and the policy on granting credit for experiences. Virtually all credit granted for experience must be validated through a departmental examination. To inquire if an appropriate departmental examination is available, students seeking credit for experience should contact the appropriate division dean. In exceptional cases, as determined by the Division Dean, where credit is awarded without validation through a departmental examination, the request for credit must be supported by official and verifiable documentation. A minimum of 15 semester hours in residence must be completed before credit is posted and a degree or certificate is awarded. Generally a maximum of 24 semester credit hours may be awarded toward the Associate of Applied Science degree while a maximum of 15 credit hours may be applied toward a Certificate of Completion. The symbol "CR" (credit), rather than a grade, will be posted to a transcript. Generally, the minimum grade equivalent of "C" must be earned on an examination in order for "CR" to be awarded. Unsuccessful attempts are not recorded on the transcripts.

KC may consider awarding of credit for documented experience in the following instances:

1.Military training and experience

2.Selected work experience in business and industry

3.Professional certificates, licenses, and credentials such as FAA licenses, real estate licenses, cosmetology licenses, and other recognized credentials

4.Learning achieved through proprietary schools, apprenticeship, or other intra-company training

5.Learning achieved through noncredit workshops, seminars, and conferences

Credit for Experience-Kinesiology

Kilgore College may award credit for KINE 1238-Concepts of Fitness based upon completion of military basic training. Credit may be awarded for KINE 1151-Scuba Diving or KINE 1152-Advanced Scuba upon completion of an accredited scuba training course from a nationally recognized dive training agency. Documentation of the above training must be received before credit will be awarded.

Credit by Examination and for Advanced Placement

Students may earn course credit by demonstrating specified achievement on nationally recognized tests offered through the College Board of New York or through KC departmental examinations. These examination options include College Board Advanced Placement examinations, subject examinations of the College Board college level examination Program ( CLEP ), and KC departmental examinations prepared, administered, and scored by KC faculty. KC administers CLEP on a regular basis. The College Board Advanced Placement examinations are offered only at selected high schools in May of each year. Additional information concerning credit by examination is available from the Office of Admissions and Registrar, the Testing Center on the Kilgore campus, and the counselor's office at KC - Longview.  The following rules and conditions apply to earning credit by examination and advanced placement at KC:

1.Credit by examination and advanced placement are available both to incoming students and students currently enrolled.

2.KC will award credit only after the student enrolls at the college and earns 15 credit hours through classroom instruction.

3.Scores earned on national examinations should be sent to KC. The student must notify the Office of Admissions and Registrar to accept or decline the credit.

4.The symbol "CR" (credit), rather than a grade, will be posted to a transcript.

5.KC will not award credit by examination for courses in which a student is currently enrolled, courses which a student has previously failed, or courses which are prerequisite to courses for which the student has already earned credit.

6.A student may earn a maximum of 24 credit hours through credit by examination. An exception to this rule exists where the college awards credit for prior education or training received in an accredited health occupations program. Additional details are provided under "Advanced Placement in Health Occupations".

7.Credit by examination or advanced placement is not applicable toward determination of scholastic standing or academic honors. Likewise, credit hours earned through credit by examination or advanced placement will not satisfy requirements for minimum hours in residence that the student must earn at KC for a certificate of completion or a degree.

8.The receiving college or university determines transfer of courses earned through credit by examination. KC urges the student to verify transferability with the college or university to which the student intends to transfer.


Credit-By-Examination Options

College Board Advanced Placement Examinations

Potential college freshmen may earn course credit through the College Board Advanced Placement Program examinations offered at selected high schools in May of each year. Students enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) courses or honors courses qualify for these examinations. Students who take these examinations should have the College Board forward their scores to the Office of Admissions and Registrar, Kilgore College, 1100 Broadway, Kilgore, TX 75662-3204. Students will not receive test results from College Board until mid-July. AP examinations for which students may earn KC course credit include the following:

Interested persons may apply to the appropriate program director by presenting documented and verifiable evidence of current certification by the controlling registry or certifying agency. The applicant must also have worked in his or her field full time a minimum of two years in the past five years. In some instances, it may be necessary that the applicant also satisfactorily pass a challenge examination administered by the college.  The number of equivalent credits awarded may not exceed the total number of credits required in the major area of the Associate of Applied Science degree being sought. The college will not post the credit hours granted to a transcript until the student has completed at least 15 semester hours of instruction at KC.
  • Advanced Placement Without Credit: A student who wishes to enroll in an advanced course for which there is no credit by examination or departmental examination for the prerequisite courses may do so with the consent of the appropriate dean. The student must demonstrate or present documentation that he or she possesses the academic background and/or experiences to justify the advanced placement. The student will not receive credit for the prerequisite courses and no fees apply.

Non-Traditional Credit:

  • Credit by College Board Advanced Placement: $25 posting fee
  • CLEP credit: Test Fee + $20 proctor fee + $25 posting fee

Course Numbering System 

Courses offered follow a four-digit numbering system. The first digit indicates the state-designated academic level of the course [0 = institutional credit (developmental), 1 = freshman, 2 = sophomore] and, the second digit reflects the semester-credit-hour value of the course. The third and fourth digits indicate sequences.

KC participates in the Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS). Participating institutions have signed agreements accepting a standard numbering system for commonly transferred academic courses. KC advises students to seek assistance through the Counseling Center, located in the Devall Student Center, when planning transfer course work. For specific information on course equivalencies and degree requirements, students should contact the colleges or universities to which they plan to transfer.


Prerequisites 

Each student is responsible for determining prerequisites for a course prior to enrollment. Prerequisites are listed in each course description in the college catalog.

Scholastic Load

During the long semester, the normal course load is five academic courses or 15 to 17 semester hours. In addition to the normal load, students may take up to four semester hours in music-Applied (MUAP or MUSE) and kinesiology (KINE). When students earn a 2.25 grade point average (GPA) or greater during a long semester or summer term, they qualify to take a total of 6 courses or 18-20 semester hours during the following semester. The maximum course load during a summer term is 8 semester hours for each term. Students may enroll in only one mini-term course at a time. Students who are employed or who have family responsibilities are cautioned to consider carefully the course load they take. The student who is overly extended is likely to have scholastic difficulties. Students should contact the dean for their major to request permission to add hours above the maximum scholastic load.


Grades for Course Work 

Grade Reports: Grades are available at the end of each term online through the myKC student web portal (https://mykc.kilgore.edu/ICS ).

Final Examinations

At the end of the semester in each course, there will be a comprehensive final examination, not to exceed two hours in length, at the time specified in the final examination schedule. Final examinations of flex classes will be administered on the last day of the class. Students are not permitted to take final examinations earlier than the time specified in the final examination schedule. A student who must be absent from a final examination should petition the instructor for permission to take the examination at a later date. The student will receive a grade of "I" (incomplete) for the course until the student takes the postponed examination. The student must take the examination within six weeks from the end of the semester or receive a grade of "F" for the examination. A student absent without the instructor's approval may receive an "F" on the examination unless there are extenuating circumstances as deemed by the instructor.

Grade Symbols

The college indicates grades by the following symbols:

  • A: (90-100) excellent
  • B: (80-89) above average
  • C: (70-79) fair or average
  • D: (60-69) lowest passing mark
  • F: (0-59) failing
  • I*: Incomplete
  • IP**: Incomplete Passing
  • W: Withdrawn from course
  • CR: Credit by examination and advanced placement

Certain health science programs have grading scales that differ from the above. Exceptions are explained on the appropriate program in Occupational Courses of Study.

* The instructor may assign an "I" because of student illness or other unavoidable circumstances. The student must complete work within six weeks after the end of the semester in which the grade was issued or receive a performance grade, usually an "F" for the course. To be eligible for this grade, the student must have essentially completed the course, and the work remaining should be of such nature as not to require class attendance. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange with the instructor for completion of the course.

** An "IP" is only for modular math courses, MATH 0307, and MATH 0309. The student re-registers for the course and receives a grade when the minimum passing score is attained. The "IP" can never revert to an "F" nor be used in computing grade point averages or academic status.

Computation of the Grade Point Average (GPA)

KC utilizes the four-point system. The semester GPA is the total number of grade points earned divided by the number of semester hours attempted including developmental hours. The cumulative GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours attempted by the student in all terms excluding developmental hours. Semester grade symbols have the following values: A=4 points; B=3 points; C=2 points; D=1 point; F or I=0. W and IP are not included in the calculations of the GPA.

Grade Change Procedure

An individual course grade may be changed when the faculty member certifies in writing that an error was made in computing the original grade or when a student has successfully completed work to satisfy a grade of incomplete (I). The appropriate dean and Vice President of Instruction must approve the grade change. An instructor cannot change a student's grade after one calendar year from the date the grade was assigned.

Grade Appeals

A student who wishes to protest a grade earned in a course should first discuss the grade with the instructor. If no resolution is reached, the student may appeal to the appropriate dean. If no satisfactory conclusion can be reached at this level, the student may appeal to the Vice President of Instruction whose decision is final. A student has one calendar year from the date the grade was assigned to appeal the grade.

Repeating Courses

If a student repeats a course, all grades remain on the transcript, but the college counts only the highest grade in determining the overall grade point average (GPA). The college cautions the student, however, that other colleges may not follow this practice. A student planning to transfer to another college or university should check with the Admissions Office at that institution to determine the course repetition policy at the receiving institution.

Academic Honors

The college recognizes students with high academic achievement in the following ways:

Dean's List

The dean's list is published soon after the close of each long semester. To make this list, the student must complete 12 or more semester hours of non-developmental coursework and must have earned a grade point average (GPA) at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale for that semester.

President’s List

The president’s list is published soon after the close of each long semester. To make this list, the student must complete 12 or more semester hours of non-developmental coursework and must have earned a grade point average (GPA) of 4.0 on a 4.0 scale for that semester.

Phi Theta Kappa

Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for community colleges. The local chapter, Gamma Omicron, was established the year after KC was founded. Members are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and citizenship. Membership is by invitation only. To be eligible for membership in the local chapter, a student (a) must be regularly enrolled in the college and be in good standing, (b) take no less than 12 hours in the long semester preceding initiation OR accumulate a minimum of 12 hours over at least two full semesters as a part-time student, and (c) have no less than a 3.50 grade point average (GPA) based on a 4.00 scale in those hours. Only coursework taken at KC applies. (Developmental coursework does not apply.) To maintain active membership, a student must remain in good standing and maintain a GPA of not less than 3.25 for coursework completed at KC.

Graduation with Honors

Graduates with a GPA of 3.50 or above are considered to be graduating with honors. To qualify for graduation with honors, a student must earn at KC 50 percent of the hours that apply to graduation. For determining honor graduates, the Office of Admissions and Registrar will compute the grade point average (GPA) for the student's entire Kilgore college record. Transfer grades are not included in the GPA calculation. Honors graduation is designated as follows:

  • 4.00 and all hours earned at KC: Presidential Honors
  • 4.00: Graduation with highest honors
  • 3.75 - 3.99: Graduation with high honors
  • 3.50 - 3.74: Graduation with honors

This designation is noted on the student's transcript and diploma.


American Honors Program

The American Honors program at Kilgore College helps motivated students transfer to their dream school to earn their bachelor’s degree. The Honors program cultivates in-depth learning through individual inquiry and encourages high-quality performance. Honors courses are interactive and emphasize critical thinking, analytical writing, and effective speaking.

The American Honors program is not a separate track or major; students matriculate in a Kilgore College degree program and take Honors courses toward fulfillment of their general education and program requirements.

Students possessing a high school diploma (or equivalent) -- including new students, continuing students, and transfer students, whether domestic or international -- should apply directly to American Honors at Kilgore College. To be eligible to enter the American Honors program, students typically have a cumulative GPA of what is equivalent to a 3.25 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale, and must be enrolled in a transferable degree plan.

All successfully completed American Honors courses at Kilgore College are identified on student transcripts. Students who take these classes are exceptionally well prepared for transfer to four-year colleges and universities, for scholarships, and for success in their transfer institutions and career paths.

For more information, visit www.kilgore.edu/academics/american-honors-program or www.americanhonors.org, or contact an American Honors Admissions Officer at admissions@americanhonors.org.

American Success Program

The American Success Program at Kilgore College provides college-level English and/or English  communication classes to prepare international students for enrollment in college-level courses and potential enrollment in the American Honors program. Applicants for this program need to have a GPA greater than 2.5 and exhibit the potential to reach and remain at a GPA greater than 2.0 in subsequent college-level courses.

For further information, contact the Dean of American Honors at rjohnson@kilgore.edu.


Course and Enrollment Withdrawal:

Course Drop Limits

Students entering college for the first time in Fall 2007 or after are subject to Senate Bill 1231 passed by the Texas Legislature in May 2007. This law limits students to a total of six drops in their entire college career in Texas public institutions, unless the courses were dropped in order to withdraw from school or for certain approved reasons. To be counted toward the total, drops must appear on the transcript and be signified by a grade of "W". Students are required to select a primary reason for withdrawing from a course at the time the course is dropped.  The following are approved reasons that do not count in the drop total:

  • personal illness
  • care of sick, injured, or needy person
  • death of family member or close friend
  • called to active military duty
  • family member or close friend called to active military duty
  • change in work schedule
  • transportation problems
  • personal/family obligations
  • withdrawal from school
  • administratively withdrawn by instructor or other college personnel

Drops from the following courses will not count in the drop total:

  • courses taken prior to high school graduation
  • developmental courses
  • lab/clinical courses that must be taken in conjunction with a lecture
  • all courses in the following departments: College Success Strategies (COLS, ORIE); Religion (RELI)

Students wishing to dispute the drop total must do so by contacting the Office of Admissions and Registrar. If the dispute cannot be resolved between the student and the Office of Admissions and Registrar, the student should follow the grievance procedure for non-instructional matters as defined in the Student Handbook. Reasons for dropping courses may not be changed after one calendar year from the end of the semester in which the courses were dropped.

back to top


Drops and Withdrawals

  • A Student-Initiated Drop is an official action whereby a student informs the Office of Admissions and Registrar that the student will cease attending a class in which he or she is enrolled while remaining in at least one other course.
  • A Faculty-Initiated Drop is an official action whereby the faculty member for a particular course informs the Office of Admissions and Registrar that the student has ceased attending a class in which the student is enrolled.
  • Withdrawing from the college is an official action whereby a student informs the Counseling Center and the Office of Admissions and Registrar that the student will cease attending all classes in which he or she enrolled.
  • Course Drop Procedures:
  1. Visit the Office of Admissions and Registrar or the KC-Longview office to request that the course be dropped. The Office of Admissions and Registrar will notify the instructor that the student has been dropped.
  2. The instructor may drop a student who ceases to attend class if the student does not formally withdraw in the Office of Admissions and Registrar.
  3. It is the student's responsibility to drop a course by the stated deadline to ensure a grade of 'W'.

Enrollment Withdrawal Procedures

  1. Obtain an official withdrawal form at the Office of Admissions and Registrar or the KC-Longview office.
  2. Complete an official withdrawal form by meeting with the offices indicated on the form.
  3. Return the completed withdrawal form to the Office of Admissions and Registrar or the KC-Longview office.
  4. Meet all obligations to the college before the Office of Admissions and Registrar can complete the withdrawal process and/or issue a transcript.
  5. It is the student's responsibility to withdraw by the stated deadline to ensure a grade of 'W'.

         "W" Grade Assigned for Dropping a Course or Withdrawing from Enrollment.

  • All course drops and/or withdrawals from enrollment, whether instructor or student initiated, shall result in a "W" if processed after the Official Reporting Date (ORD).
  • Documentation of all drops and withdrawals must be on file in the Office of Admissions and Registrar by the end of business on each deadline date for a "W" to be assigned.
  • It is the student's responsibility to drop classes and/or withdraw from enrollment by the deadline to receive a "W". After that time, a performance grade will be given in each course in which the student is enrolled (A, B, C, D, F, or IP for certain courses.)

Administrative Withdrawal of a Student 

Kilgore College reserves the right to withdraw a student from one or more classes if, in the judgment of college officials, such action is deemed to be in the interest of the student and/or the college. Examples of some reasons for administrative withdrawal are failure to pay tuition and fees, failure to provide accurate information or admission credentials, failure to remove "holds" in a timely manner, excessive absences or unacceptable student behavior.

Attendance Policy

Kilgore College expects punctuality and regular class attendance. An absence is defined as a student's not being in class for any reason. An instructor may drop students when their lack of attendance prohibits them from meeting the course Student Learning Outcomes or when students accumulate excessive absences. "Excessive absences" is defined as the equivalent of two weeks instruction in a 16-week semester or at least 12.5% of the total hours of instruction in any term. Some workforce programs may have more stringent attendance requirements due to applicable external requirements and/or competencies; therefore, students in workforce programs should check with their instructor regarding the specific number of absences allowed. Students may be dropped for nonattendance per Federal Financial Aid requirements even if the absences constitute less than 12.5% of the course.

Religious Day Absence

In accordance with Texas Education Code 51.911, a student may request and be granted an absence from classes on a religious holy day provided the student follows college procedures for seeking such authorization. It is the student's responsibility to make satisfactory arrangements with instructors prior to the absence for completing makeup work. The procedure governing an absence on a religious holy day is outlined in the Kilgore College Student Handbook.


Policy for Making Up Work 

Effective communication between students and their instructor is essential. Students are responsible for initiating any make up work regardless of the cause of the absence. Students absent on official college business are entitled to make up any and all missed work without any penalty attached. However, students should notify their instructors in advance of the absence and should schedule any make-up assignments before the absence. If the student does not submit makeup work by the prearranged time, the student forfeits the right for further make-up of that assignment. For a student whose absence is not official college business, the individual instructor will judge if the student is eligible to make up work. In all cases, the instructor will determine the time for making up work and the nature of the make-up work. Whenever possible, students should discuss their impending absence with the instructor and schedule the make-up work prior to the absence.

Academic Probation and Suspension 

Students must meet academic standards in work completed at KC. Students who fail to meet those standards are placed on scholastic probation or scholastic suspension. Only grades earned at KC are used to determine probation or suspension status.

Scholastic Probation

A conditional permission for a student to remain in college. That status will be applied to any student who:

  • has completed at least one semester, and has attempted at least 12 cumulative semester hours and earns less than a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA);
  • or returns from scholastic suspension after "stopping out" for at least one 16-week (long) semester;
  • or is on scholastic suspension and attends summer school, earning 6 or more hours with a 1.75 cumulative GPA or a 2.5 summer GPA.

A student may remain in school on probation as long as the cumulative GPA is at least 1.75 or a long semester GPA is at least 2.0. Students on scholastic probation must consult a counselor or faculty advisor before registering for another semester. Students on probation are not allowed to web register.
A student is removed from probation when the student earns a 2.0 cumulative GPA or better.

Note: A grade of "I" is calculated as an "F" until the grade is changed to a higher grade.

Scholastic Suspension

The loss of the conditional permission of a student on scholastic probation to remain in college. Suspension is for one 16-week semester and occurs when a student on probation fails to earn at least a 1.75 cumulative grade point average (GPA) or a 2.0 GPA in the most recent 16-week semester. A student on scholastic suspension may:

•enroll in the next long semester under conditions prescribed by the Director of Counseling and Testing or designee; or Dean of KC-Longview or designee, if student is enrolled at that location;

or attend summer school. Students earning 6 or more semester hours in the summer with a cumulative GPA of at least 1.75 or a summer GPA of 2.5 will continue on probation.

Readmission Following Scholastic Suspension

A student may be readmitted on continued scholastic probation after one long semester of scholastic suspension. Students returning from suspension must complete a Reactivation form with the Office of Admissions and Registrar. Students must also consult with the Director of Counseling and Testing or a designee or the Dean of KC-Longview or designee before registering for classes. Students on suspension are not allowed to web register.

Academic Appeals

An appeal involves the student’s formal request for review of a decision made by a college employee. The granting of an appeal is not automatic; instead, appeals are intended to ensure that proper procedures have been followed and all available information has been considered. To fulfill the intent of the Kilgore College appeal process, appeals must have standing to be considered. To have standing, students must demonstrate that either: appropriate policy or procedure was not followed when the decision being appealed was made OR that there is new information or evidence that was not available for consideration when the decision being appealed was made.

Individuals serving as an appellate officer may:

  1. Uphold the original decision.
  2. Add to or increase the severity of the sanctions, conditions, and/or restrictions.
  3. Modify or cancel the decision or action.
  4. Remand the decision or action with appropriate instructions to the previous authority.

Failure to file a written appeal within the stated timeframe will render the original decision final and conclusive.

Academic Complaint Grade Related

Under most circumstances, grade changes can be made only by the faculty of record. A student is entitled to a review and explanation of the grading process and the grade received. A grade is the primary prerogative and responsibility of the faculty member and any review as the result of a complaint is intended to ensure accuracy, fairness and adherence to Kilgore College policy. The following steps will be followed in an effort to reconcile a grade dispute:

Individual Assignment Grades

1. The student will discuss an individual assignment grade dispute occurring during the semester with the faculty member involved within three (3) business days after the dispute arises.

2. If the student and faculty member are unable to resolve the dispute, the student may present the case in writing on a student appeal form to the department chair/program director within three working days of the meeting with the faculty member.

3. The department chair will render a decision and respond via email to the student’s official Kilgore College email account within three (3) business days upon receiving the student’s written appeal.

4. If the grade dispute is not resolved, the student may appeal the decision to the appropriate dean by submitting the written appeal form within three (3) business days of the meeting with the department chair. The dean will respond via email to the student’s official Kilgore College email account within three (3) business days upon receiving the student's written appeal. The dean's decision is final and concludes the appeal process.

Semester Grades 

1. Should a student desire to protest a semester grade, the student will discuss the dispute with the faculty member involved no later than the end of the sixth week following the first class day of the next long semester. Long semester is defined as the fall and spring semesters; therefore, a student protesting a spring or summer semester grade will have the first 6 weeks of the following fall semester to appeal.

2. If the student and faculty member are unable to resolve the dispute, the student may present the case in writing on a student appeal form to the department chair/program director within three (3) working days of the meeting with the faculty member.

3. The department chair will render a decision and respond via email to the student’s official Kilgore College email account within three (3) business days upon receiving the student’s written appeal.

4. If the grade dispute is not resolved to the student's satisfaction, the student may appeal the decision to the appropriate dean by submitting the written appeal form within three (3) business days of the meeting with the department chair. The dean will respond via email to the student’s official Kilgore College email account within three (3) business days upon receiving the student's written appeal.

5. In a semester grade dispute, the decision of the dean may be appealed to the Vice President of Instruction by submitting the appeal form to the VPI within three (3) business days upon receiving the dean’s decision. The Vice President of Instruction will notify the student of the decision which is final and concludes the appeal process.

NOTE: In the event that the instructional division dean is the instructor of record, the dispute will proceed to the Vice President of Instruction, following the procedures above. Should the Vice President of Instruction be the instructor of record, the dispute will proceed to the President of the College, following the procedures above.


Academic Complaints

Kilgore College is committed to resolving student concerns or dissatisfaction in the most expeditious and informal manner possible. As a result, students are expected to discuss their concerns or questions with the instructor, staff member, or office area in which they are experiencing dissatisfaction.  Most issues can be resolved at this level.

For situations that cannot be resolved informally, students have the right to file a formal, written complaint. A Kilgore College Complaint form is provided in Appendix C of the Kilgore College Student Handbook. In addition, copies of the complaint form are available in the Offices of the Vice President of Instruction, the Vice President of Student Development or any of the instructional division dean’s offices. The following steps will be followed in an effort to resolve academic complaints not related to disputed grades; e.g., removal from a class, dismissal or suspension from a department, denial of privileges associated with a class or department, classroom dishonesty, etc.

1. Students should first take problems or questions to the instructor with whom they are experiencing the dissatisfaction as most problems can be resolved in this manner. This should occur within one week after the occurrence of the event or situation giving rise to the complaint.

2. If the student and the instructor are unable to find a solution to the problem, the student may present the case in writing to the instructor’s department chair or program director within three working days of meeting with the instructor.  This is the point at which the Student Complaint form is utilized.

3. The student will fill out the Student Complaint form completely, down to and including the student’s signature, and attach any appropriate written documentation to the form.

4. The department chair/program director will investigate the situation with the instructor.  The department chair/program director will sign the complaint form at the time of reaching a decision.  They will also get the signature of the instructor to indicate that the matter has been discussed with them.  The department chair/program director will then communicate the decision to the student via email to the student’s official Kilgore College email address.

[If the department chair/program director determines it is in the best interest of the student to conceal the student’s identity from the instructor on whom the complaint is filed, the department chair/program director will write a redacted account of the complaint on a separate document and present it to the instructor.  The instructor will sign the document, indicating that he/she has been informed.  The instructor may write a follow-up document, which will become part of the written complaint record.]

5.   If the student is not satisfied with the decision of the department chair/program director, the student should present the complaint form with documentation to the appropriate instructional division dean within three working days of receiving a formal response from the department chair/program director.  At the time of rendering a formal response to the student, the instructional division dean will sign the form.

6. If the student is not satisfied with the decision of the instructional division dean, the student may present the formal student complaint form, with documentation, to the vice president of instruction within three working days of receiving a formal response from the dean.  The vice president of instruction will review the issue with regard to proper policy and procedure adherence.

7. The vice president will communicate his decision via email to the student’s official Kilgore College email address. The decision of the vice president is final and concludes the complaint process.

NOTE: In the event that the instructional division dean is the instructor of record, the dispute will proceed to the Vice President of Instruction, following the procedures above. Should the Vice President of Instruction be the instructor of record, the dispute will proceed to the President of the College, following the procedures above.

In all instances of student complaints, efforts will be made to minimize the amount of time from one step to the next in the interest of resolving the issue as quickly as possible.

Financial Aid:

The College makes every effort to assist students with documented financial need in locating sources to help with their educational expenses. Financial aid is available for students who, without assistance, would not be able to go to college. The family and student are expected to assume a major responsibility for tuition, fees and living expenses. The role financial aid plays in paying a student's higher education exists only when there is a difference between the student's resources and the cost of education, also known as unmet need.

Students are encouraged to become familiar with the KC Financial Aid Website and Financial Aid Portal at https://finaid.kilgore.edu/student/Logon.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fstudent%2 fPgHome.aspx, and also at my KC (JICS) Portal at https://mykc.kilgore.edu/ICS. All financial aid information concerning required documents, status of award package, payment and aid deadlines, academic progress standing, and student acknowledgement of institutional and federal regulations will be delivered through the above institutional websites.

Financial Aid - Veteran Affairs Benefits

Attendance Policy for VA Benefit Eligible Students

Students using veterans’ benefits to attend Kilgore College will have attendance monitored until the time the student drops, graduates, or completes the program.  Unsatisfactory attendance will be reported to the DVA even if the VA student has completed the required number of hours and no refund is due the student and/or refund sources.  Therefore, the attendance policy (20% of the total program and/or being absent five [5] consecutive days) will apply throughout the student’s stay in school.  All violations of the attendance policy will be reported to DVA on VA Form 22-1999b within 30 days at such time the student exceeds the allowed number of absences.

For clock hour programs, to prevent overpayment situations, the DVA recommends weekly certification of ACTUAL attendance on a weekly basis.

This signed form is only applicable for accredited and non-accredited non-college degree (NCD) program(s) or for non-accredited NCD program(s) offered at institutions of higher learning (IHL). The policy contained herein establishes the attendance policy for the veteran student(s) when there exists a less stringent policy or when there is no attendance policy defined in the institutions published catalog.

I have read, understand, and will comply with this policy for the veteran students certified for GI Bill benefits.

Military Tuition Assistance Refund Procedures

Kilgore College has a published refund policy for all students that follows regulations established by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board for Texas Community Colleges. That policy is published in the appropriate Registration Guide and is as follows:

Long Semester:

Refund Percentage: Class Days
100% Prior to first class day
70% First 15 class days
25% 16th through 20th class days
0% After 20th class day

Refunds related to flex terms, including summer terms, will follow the regular refund schedule printed in the Registration Guide and will be based on number of class days in the course or term.

For Students participating in the Military Tuition Assistance Program, refunds for withdrawals before completing 60% of the period of enrollment will be calculated based on a percentage of the calendar days completed divided by the total calendar days in the enrollment period.  Students withdrawing after 60% of the semester is completed are not eligible for a refund.  Once the refund amount is determined, the difference between the Tuition Assistance that was disbursed and the amount of Tuition Assistance that was earned will be returned to the appropriate military service, and not the student.

Long Semester, Course Specific Tuition Assistance Refund Schedule:

Number of days completed

__________________________________   =    percent earned X Tuition Assistance Paid

Total days of the period (start to end date)

Kilgore College will work with service members that stop attending due to a military service obligation in identifying solutions that will not result in a student debt for the returned portion. Military tuition assistance is awarded based on students completing the entire term for which the assistance was awarded. When a student withdraws, they may no longer be eligible for the full amount.

A student must officially drop or withdraw through the Office of Admissions and Registrar.  If a student officially withdraws from a course, the date of withdrawal will be used as the last date of attendance. If a scheduled course fails to materialize, the college will return 100% of tuition and fees, with the exception of late and matriculation fees.  A matriculation fee will be charged for students who enroll in courses and then completely withdraw from those courses for a particular semester. 

If a student does not officially withdraw, and is determined to have never attended, or for any other unofficial withdrawal, the college will determine the last date of attendance by (1) last date of activity within a course, (2) last date a student made a contribution to the class or submitted an assignment, and/or (3) based on instructor’s determination of last date of attendance.

Kilgore College Return to Title IV Policy

Kilgore College follows the federal R2T4 policy of returning funds to the appropriate programs as students withdraw during any academic period of enrollment. This policy applies to students who completely withdraw from all classes before the 60% point in the fall, spring, or summer semester.

The following steps are followed in calculating the funds owed back to the Department of Education:

  • Students who officially withdraw from school in person are directed to the financial aid office for counseling before the R2T4 calculation process.
  • Students who unofficially withdraw are verified to be fully withdrawn from the institution either through communication with the instructor through attendance records and drop slips on file with the Registrar.
  • A weekly report is generated to identify federal financial aid students who have withdrawn from all classes.
  • Calculations are processed via the federal R2T4 software program to determine the amount of federal aid earned per amounts disbursed (or not disbursed) using the percentage of days attended from the total days in the term.
  • The calculations to determine the amount of the R2T4 return are done within 5 days of the notification that the student has withdrawn from classes.
  • The amount of aid which has been earned by the student's days of attendance is changed to show as the amount claimed by Kilgore College in the student account, and the unearned amount of aid is returned to the DOE as soon as the Origination and Disbursement Records are run on a weekly basis.
  • The unearned funds are thus returned to the DOE immediately following the R2T4 calculation in the following order:
    1. Unsubsidized Direct Loans
    2. Subsidized Direct Loans
    3. Direct Plus Loans
    4. Pell Grant
    5. SEOG Grant
  • The student is notified that due to the withdrawal, he/she now owes Kilgore College for funds that have been returned to the Dept.  of Ed. on his/her behalf. The letter to the student explains the reason for the calculation, the formula used to determine the amount owed, the consequences of R2T4, and the payment address the student may use in order to repay the amount owed.
  • A hold is placed on the student's records and is not removed until the amount owed by the student is repaid. Student may not register, request a transcript, or receive further funds from the institution.
  • If a FAFSA is received from the processing center showing an overpayment in federal funds for a transferring student, the student is notified that this must be cleared and repaid before any further funds of any kind may be awarded.
  • The overpayments of funds due to the Dept. of Education from Kilgore College are reported through COD, the Federal Common Origination and Disbursement System, and to NSLDS.
  • A final SAP report is run after the end of the semester. The R2T4 calculation is done for students who receive all F's or W's, and appropriate actions are taken as necessary. Instructors are contacted to determine the last date of attendance or completion of any activity from the student as related to the course of study. If there is no date available, the date used for the R2T4 is the midpoint date of the semester.
  • Funds are returned based on the findings of the SAP report in the same manner as those returned throughout academic semester.

Financial Aid Suspension Appeal Process

Appeal Process:

  • If a student is placed on Suspension, the student can complete and submit a suspension appeal.
  • Upon review, the student has a 2.0 cumulative and semester GPA, prior to the semester that the student was placed on suspension.
  • If the GPA requirement is met, supporting documentation of a extenuating or catastrophic event that occurred during the timeframe/semester that the student failed to make Satisfactory Academic Progress, must accompany the appeal form when it is submitted to the Financial Aid Office. If not, it will be denied due to lack of documentation.
  • For students who are on suspension for Excessive Hours/Maximum timeframe, it will be the student's responsibility to obtain a degree evaluation from the Kilgore College Counseling Center to submit with Appeal Packet. The Appeal Form and Degree evaluation must be submitted together or the appeal will be denied.
  • If the appeal is reviewed and granted, the student will be required to make an appointment to review and agree to the terms of the Appeal Contract, prior to financial aid being awarded.
  • It is the student's responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office if they need to reschedule or cancel an appointment. Students who arrive 15 minutes or later for a scheduled appeal appointment will need to reschedule, unless prior arrangements were made with Financial Aid staff.
  • The student must strictly adhere to the terms of the Appeal Contract. In the event that the terms of the contract are inadvertently changed, the contract becomes invalid and the student will be placed back on suspension with no opportunity for another appeal.

Examples in which the terms of the contract are inadvertently changed:

  1. The student drops or reenrolls in a class that is not a part of their degree plan.
  2. The instructor drops the student for non-attendance.
  3. The student tests out of the class, which makes it impossible for the student to complete the amount of hours necessary by the terms of the contract.
  4. The student does not attend the tutoring lab, as per the terms of their appeal contract.
  5. If there is any possibility that the terms of the appeal contract can or will change, it is the student's responsibility to notify the Director or Assistant Director of Financial Aid immediately. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS!!! Notification must be made within the first two weeks of the enrollment semester.
  • At any time during the semester in which the appeal is granted, if the terms of the contract change without prior notification or approval by the Financial Aid Office, the student will be placed back on suspension at the end of the semester the appeal was granted. Financial Aid Appeals can only be grantee/ one time throughout the student's enrollment at Kilgore College.
  • Once the Suspension Appeal Contract has been reviewed and signed, the student will be placed on Financial Aid Probation and the financial aid package will be awarded.

Financial Aid Probation - During the probation semester, the student will still be eligible for financial aid, but the following must be completed by the end of that semester to continue to be eligible for financial aid the next semester. All terms agreed to in the Appeal Contract must be completed successfully, the student must have a 2.0 semester GPA, and may not have withdrawn from any classes in which the student was enrolled.


Kilgore College Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

All categories of student financial aid are measured by academic progress criteria. Federal regulations require that institutions monitor all financial aid recipients to ensure that students are maintaining a minimum standard academic achievement. Academic standards vary between federal, state, and institutional financial aid funds, but all require a minimum number of hours completed with a minimum grade point average. To continue to receive funding from the Federal Student Aid programs (Pell Grants, other Federal grants, and Federal Direct Loans), students must meet the Kilgore College Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.

Institutional scholarships, State grants, and other non-federal student aid programs have specific academic requirements for each individual program, it is the student's responsibility to read and understand the academic and hourly requirement criteria for each award shown in the student's financial aid award package.

1.Grade Point Average (Qualitative) Standards

  • Students must maintain a 2.0 Financial Aid cumulative grade point average. (All college level courses combined with any remedial or COLS classes). This does not apply to scholarships. Scholarships carry specific GPA requirements.
  • Grades of A, B, C, D, F, and I will count toward the Financial Aid Cumulative GPA.
  • Grades of W and IP will not count toward the Financial Aid Cumulative GPA.
  • Grades of "IP" are considered as passing grades by Financial Aid.
  • Remedial course work will be included in the Financial Aid Cumulative GPA.
  • Academic work will be checked at the end of each semester (Fall, Spring, Summer) and will include all flex and mini semester course work.
  • Prior periods of enrollment will be evaluated for SAP prior to awarding.

2.     Course Hour Completion (Quantitative) Standards

  • Students must complete 70% of the hours enrolled in to maintain progress. This does not apply to scholarships.  Scholarships maintain a specific hourly requirement.
  • The number of hours in which a student is enrolled on the official census day for each course determines the nun1ber of hours needed for completion.
  • Completion rates will be checked at the end of each semester and will include all remedial, flex and mini semester course work.
  • Grades of A, B, C, D and F are considered as completed grades, and will be included in the calculation of the number of hours completed.
  • Grades of W, I, and IP are considered attempted hours and are used for this determination.
  • Hours which transfer into Kilgore College will be counted toward the student's completion rate?

3.     Maximum Time Frame Completion: (Pace)

Students enrolled at Kilgore College are expected to work toward a specific degree or certificate and to complete that goal within a certain reasonable timeframe.

  • All periods of enrollment are counted toward the 150% timeframe, whether or not financial aid paid for those hours.
  • Students who enroll in courses not included in their declared major course of study or certificate program will not receive financial aid for those courses.
  • Developmental hours will not count toward the 150% completion rate.
  • Students who change their program of study may use up eligibility for federal aid prior to completion of their degree or certificate.
  • A student's attempted credit hours cannot exceed a maximum of 150% of the hours required to complete a declared major course of study, or certificate program.
  • Once the student has reached or exceeded the 150% timeframe, he/she will be placed on suspension and no longer be eligible for financial aid.

4. Financial Aid Warning:

  • Students who do not meet the Financial Aid Cumulative GPA or hourly requirements will be placed on Financial Aid Warning. The student will be eligible to receive financial aid for the subsequent semester while on Financial Aid Warning status.
  • Students on Financial Aid Warning may be subject - but not limited to - a combination of the following institutional requirements:
  • Mandatory counseling sessions with the Financial Aid Retention Counselor
  • Tutoring logs showing time spent in The Zone or Math/English/Reading Labs
  • Limited hours of enrollment, based on student's ability to be successful
  • No access to online registration
  • No access to self-registration
  • Specialized academic plan, with emphasis on re-evaluated degree/certificate plan
  • Signed contract with Retention Counselor
  • Suggested limit of hours of employment
  • Repeat of classes with failing academic grades
  • Any additional requirements deemed necessary for academic completion and student success

5.     Financial Aid Suspension:

  • Students who do not meet the Financial Aid Cumulative GPA or Hourly Requirements while on Financial Aid Warning status will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension. While on Suspension, a student is no longer eligible to receive federal financial aid.
  • To reestablish financial aid eligibility, a student must enroll in sufficient hours to raise their cumulative
  • GPA and completion rate to the minimum standards of the Satisfactory Academic Policy. This may be done with personal funds or other funding provided by the student. After completion, he/she must bring this to the attention of the financial aid office in order to be re-evaluated for federal aid eligibility.
  • Students on suspension must also submit an appeal form requesting that eligibility be reinstated.

6.   Financial Aid Suspension Appeals:

  • Students wishing to appeal their suspension status must complete and submit the following documents:
  • Financial Aid Suspension Appeal Form and Personalized Academic Worksheet
  • Official Degree Audit
  • Typed statement of explanation for the reason of the appeal
  • Unofficial Kilgore College Transcript
  • Official documentation of events which prevented academic progress during the semester in which the suspension occurred.
  • Appeals may be considered by an Appeals Committee, composed of the Retention Counselor, an Academic Advisor, and a faculty member.
  • Appeals that are granted will require an appointment with the Retention Counselor to create a Suspension Success Plan Contract, signed by both the Retention Counselor and the student.
  • Students whose appeals are granted will be considered to be on Financial Aid Probation.
  • The Appeal Success Plan may likely be composed of the same institutional requirements as those described under the Financial Aid Warning (Item #4) plan.
  • Students must strictly follow the terms of the Appeal Success Plan. If changes are requested, the
  • Retention Counselor must be consulted prior to the change, or the Plan becomes invalid and the student returns to financial aid suspension.

Examples in which the terms of the contract are inadvertently changed:

  1. The student drops or enrolls in a class that is not a part of their degree plan.
  2. The instructor drops the student for non-attendance.
  3. The student tests out of the class, the class is then dropped.
  4. The student does not attend the tutoring lab, as per the terms of their appeal contract.
  5. The student withdraws from a class.

7.Financial Aid Suspension Appeals Due to Excessive Hours

  • Students may find themselves on suspension due to exceeding the 150% timeframe regulation.
  • Students who exceed the 150% limit will be able to submit an Excessive Hour Appeal.
  • Those students will need to submit a degree audit, showing a limited amount of hours needed to complete a specific program of study.
  • They will be required to sign an Excessive Hour Contract, which will limit the enrollment to program specific hours, and aid that will pay for those hours.
  • Students must have any enrollment change to the Excessive Hour contract approved by the Retention Counselor.
  1. Financial Aid Suspension Appeals Due to Excessive Hours
  • Students may find themselves on suspension due to exceeding the 150% timeframe regulation.
  • Students who exceed the 150% limit will be able to submit an Excessive Hour Appeal.
  • Those students will need to submit a degree audit, showing a limited amount of hours needed to complete a specific program of study.
  • They will be required to sign an Excessive Hour Contract, which will limit the enrollment to program specific hours, and aid that will pay for those hours.
  • Students must have any enrollment change to the Excessive Hour contract approved by the Retention Counselor.

9.Financial Aid Eligibility and Developmental Hour Limits

  • Students may receive federal aid for a maximum of30 developmental hours attempted at Kilgore College. After the 30 hour limit has been exceeded, any further developmental hour requirement will not be paid by federal student aid.
  • Example: If a student has exceeded the 30 hour limit and enrolls for 12 hours during the semester, for which 9 hours are regular credit hours needed for degree, and 3 hours are a developmental class. Financial aid will pay the eligible amount of9 hours, but not the total of 12 hours.

10.Transfer Students

  • Students with no history at KC will be assumed to be making satisfactory academic progress at the time they transfer into Kilgore College.
  • Hours that transfer into the major course of study will be counted toward the 150% timeframe eligibility regulation, along with any hours of enrollment at Kilgore College.
  • Transferring students need to be aware that the federal regulations concerning the Pell LEU and Loan Aggregate Limits still apply to any award package at KC.
  • lf the college transcript(s) are not on file with the KC Registrar's Office, the student will be considered as a first year student for loan purposes.
  • Hours that are accepted and transferred into Kilgore College will be counted in the completion rate.

11.     Miscellaneous Information

  • Financial aid funds will pay to repeat a class if the student originally received a grade of F, I or W, or if the program requires a grade of C or higher. Once the student receives a passing grade, but desires to repeat the course, he will need to pay with personal funds.
  • Federal student aid will also pay the Excessive Developmental Charge for developmental courses as needed, but only up to the 30 hour developmental limit.

12.     Scholarships and Academic Progress

  • Most scholarship and non-federal aid funds carry specific academic and enrollment requirements for renewed funding to a student account.
  • Students receiving institutional, departmental, or state funds should check with the Scholarship Coordinator in regard to Letters of Agreement, showing the terms of scholarship eligibility.
  • Scholarship eligibility is evaluated at the end of each long semester (Fall, Spring, Summer), after which students who have lost eligibility will receive a notification advising of this status.
  • Scholarships do not have a Warning or Probation Status - (similar to federal student aid funds). Students who do not achieve the academic or enrollment criteria for renewal will not be awarded those funds for the subsequent semester (even if the Letter of Agreement shows the scholarship is awarded for one academic year.)
  • Certain scholarships which are considered to be "performance based" will carry different terms for renewal.

Student Affairs:

Conduct and Discipline

The Vice President of Student Development is responsible for implementing student disciplinary procedures published in the Kilgore College Student Handbook which will assure prompt and appropriate action while, at the same time will provide due process. The college does not have a multiplicity of rules of behavior. The college assumes that students eligible to enter college are familiar with the ordinary rules governing proper conduct.

Complaints and Grievances

Kilgore College is committed to resolving student concerns or dissatisfaction in the most expeditious and informal manner possible. As a result, students are expected to discuss their concerns or questions with the instructor, staff member, or office area in which they are experiencing dissatisfaction.  Most issues can be resolved at this level.       

For situations that cannot be resolved informally, students have the right to file a formal, written complaint. A Kilgore College Complaint form is provided in Appendix C of the Kilgore College Student Handbook. In addition, copies of the complaint form are available in the Offices of the Vice President of Instruction, the Vice President of Student Development or any of the instructional division dean’s offices.

1. Students should first take problems or questions to the staff member with whom they are experiencing the dissatisfaction as most problems can be resolved in this manner. This should occur within one week after the occurrence of the event or situation giving rise to the complaint.

2. If the resolution is satisfactory, no further action is required. If the attempt at resolution is not satisfactory, the student may proceed as follows:

3. Within three (3) business days after meeting with the staff member, the student shall submit a complaint in writing to the immediate supervisor of the employee concerned. If a student organization or another student is involved, the written complaint should be submitted to the organization’s sponsor or other appropriate authority. The vice president of student development’s office will assist in identifying the appropriate authority to which complaints shall be directed.

4. This is the point at which the Student Complaint form is utilized. The student will fill out the Student Complaint form completely, down to and including the student’s signature, and attach any appropriate written documentation to the form.

5. The supervisor or appropriate authority has three (3) business days to investigate the circumstances and to reach his or her findings and conclusions and communicate these to the student via email to the student’s official KC email address. The original complaint form, signed and dated by the supervisor, will be returned to the student.

6. If the student does not agree with the decision of the supervisor or appropriate authority, the student may file the complaint with the appropriate Vice President. This step must be completed within three (3) business days of receiving the decision from the supervisor or appropriate authority. The Vice President will review the complaint for matters of policy and procedure only. Students, who take classes at KC-Longview, may direct non-academic matters to the Executive Dean of KC-Longview.  The decision of the Vice President or the Executive Dean of KC-Longview is final and concludes the complaint process.

NOTE: In the event that the Vice President of Student Development or the Executive Dean is the subject of the complaint, the dispute will proceed to the Director of Human Resources, following the procedures above.

Complaints Against the Institution

If after exhausting the College’s complaint process, the student may initiate a complaint with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB). To file a complaint with THECB, one must complete the Student Complaint and Release Forms and the Authorization to Disclose Medical Record Information (required if a disability is alleged).

Certificate of Completion

KC offers certificates designed to meet specific needs of the community. Upon completion of a prescribed course of study with at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA), the student receives a Certificate of Completion. Please refer to individual degree plans for specific certificate requirements.


ACADEMIC FIELDS OF STUDY 

Community colleges do not require students to declare "majors", but there are suggested courses to take in preparation for a major. Students are encouraged to work closely with college counselors or advisors in choosing the proper courses in line with both their desired major and the senior institution to which they wish to transfer. 

Senate Bill 148 of the 75th Texas Legislature (1997) and the subsequent legislation mandate field of study curricula. A field of study curriculum, in conjunction with the core curriculum, is intended to facilitate transferability of courses among Texas public colleges and universities. All public 4-year institutions are required to accept Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) approved field of study courses in fulfillment of lower division requirements for bachelor's degrees in majors that correspond to that field of study. 

In some disciplines, the student may take certain additional courses that, along with the core curriculum and field of study curriculum, will result in an associate of arts degree in that discipline. These are listed adjacent to their corresponding field of study curriculum. back to top

Notes:

1.COSC 1336/1436 and 1337/1437 are preparatory and sequential in nature; however, not all courses are required for the Computer Science major at all universities, but may apply to general degree requirements.

  1. COSC 1336/1436 is not part of the Computer Science major requirements at The University of Texas at Austin, University of Texas at Arlington, University of Texas at Dallas, and Texas A&M University.
  2. COSC 1337/1437 is not part of the Computer Science major requirements at The University of Texas at Austin. Preparatory courses such as COSC 1336/1436 and COSC 1337/1437 will assist students that need additional background but do not apply toward the computer science major requirements.

2.COSC 2325/2425 is not part of the Computer Science major requirements at the University of Texas at Austin or Texas A&M University, but may be applied to general degree requirements.

3.It is recommended that students complete the math sequence, physics sequence, and computer science sequence at the same institution to reduce the likelihood of potential gaps in the curriculum.

Nursing Content Courses

NOTE: Lower-division nursing content is offered at community colleges through one of two general types of programs: Blocked or Integrated Concept Based. Because of the distribution of content, it is extremely difficult to align curricula from one type of program to another. Students who desire to transfer from a program utilizing one type of program into the other type of program should be prepared to make up some content through a "bridge" course or through the repetition of some content within courses. It is recommended that a student make every effort to avoid transferring from one type of program to the other before completing the associate degree in nursing in order not to lose credit. 

Lower-division nursing content courses being transferred from a blocked curriculum program to another blocked-curriculum program should be applied to the degree on a course-for-course substitution basis, in which the course transferred is applied IN LIEU OF the course at the receiving institution, even if the number of semester credit hours awarded upon the completion of the course varies between the sending and receiving institutions. The same procedure should be used when a student transfers from an integrated-curriculum program into another integrated-curriculum program. 

1 Prerequisite courses to BIOL 2401/2402 or the equivalent are not required for the Field of Study Curriculum for Nursing.

The following notes address special circumstances and are also part of the field of study curriculum:

  1. Wherever possible, courses applied to fulfill field of study curriculum requirements should also be used to satisfy requirements in the general academic core curriculum. Generally, the math course, the biology or chemistry course(s), and one psychology course should be able to fulfill requirements in both curricula.
  2. Courses selected for inclusion in the field of study curriculum are those that are common to most baccalaureate nursing programs.
  3. Completion of the field of study curriculum shall not prevent a receiving institution from requiring additional courses/content for specific degree programs.
  4. Students should not be required to repeat courses that they have completed successfully.
  5. The academic courses and the unmodified WECM courses that are included in the Field of Study Curriculum for Nursing should transfer immediately upon approval of the field of study curriculum by the Coordinating Board. New WECM courses and courses that need modification should be accepted in transfer as soon as those modifications have been approved by the WECM Maintenance committee and added to the WECM inventory. Implementation of the complete field of study curriculum should not take more than one calendar year following addition of the new and modified courses to the WECM inventory. New or modified WECM courses will be initiated with entering students. Programs may allow sophomore students to continue with the previous curricula to prevent changing courses in the middle of their programs. Full implementation of new and modified WECM courses must be complete within two years after their addition to the WECM inventory.

TRANSFER COURSES BY MAJOR 

The courses listed in this section by major are intended to illustrate the nature of the work required in many fields of preparation provided by four-year colleges and universities. These suggested electives are designed for students who plan to transfer. Because senior college requirements vary, students should consult the catalog of the senior college of their choice before selecting electives. The number following the academic field is the major code number.
