Top 10 reasons to choose community college


Community colleges like Kishwaukee College are a great option for staying close to home and getting a world class education. Check out the following reasons why attending Kish might be the right choice for you:

1. Money: Community colleges help you save money. Kish’s affordable tuition is well below the cost of a 4-year school.

2. Scholarships: Kish offers over $550,000 in scholarship money to help students achieve their academic goals without graduating with mountains of debt.

3. Student Involvement: Many community colleges offer clubs and organizations for students to get involved. From the honor society Phi Theta Kappa to playing on one of our nine sports teams , Kish gives students unique opportunities to form new friendships and develop leadership skills outside the classroom.

4. Real World Experiences: Kish’s expert faculty teach in modern labs to let you learn in an environment that resembles what you’ll encounter in the workplace. We also offer many internship opportunities so students can gain first-hand industry experience.

5. Flexibility: Maintaining a school-work-life balance is important, and like many other community colleges, Kish has flexible scheduling options to make it easy for students to continue their studies and focus on other important things like family and work.

6. Personal Attention: On Kish campus, you’re not a number. Our 16:1 student to instructor ratio ensures you’ll get the time and attention you need and we’ll know you by name.

7. Online Classes: Take control of your learning with online classes. Approximately 20% of Kish classes for the upcoming spring semester are online. Midnight or 3:00 pm, learn on your time. You can even earn an entire associate degree online!

8. Professional Certificates: Not every student wants or needs a degree. Kish has many short-term traning and certificate programs to get you the skills, knowledge and experience to start your new career fast.

9. Transfer Agreements: Thinking of transferring after community college? No problem! Kish has over 25 transfer agreements with different institutions to help ensure your transfer is as easy as possible.

10. 2 Degrees in 3 Years: We’ve partnered with area high schools to outline pathways to an associate and bachelor’s in only 3 years after high school graduation.
