Welcome to Klamath Community College! Once you complete the application, follow the steps below:
1. File a FAFSA
Federal financial aid will not pay for the CDL program by itself, but students interested in financial aid for a larger degree program must file a Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. FAFSA processing usually takes four to eight weeks, but it can take as long as 12 weeks to process, so file early. Remember to list Klamath Community College and its federal school code, 034283, on the FAFSA.
2. Get placed for math and writing
If you are fresh out of high school or if you have already taken college-level writing or math, a student success representative can help you figure out which math and writing classes are right for you. If you are brand new to college and it has been one year or more since you graduated from high school, you will need to complete placement testing. You can acquire a math placement test form from Student Services in Founders Hall.
3. Register for classes
Once you've been accepted into the CDL program, you will receive an email directing you to meet with a student success representative to register for classes and giving you instructions for how to complete your next steps.
4. Attend New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation is held once per term on the Thursday prior to the first day of classes. It is required for students who have never attended college before. Contact Student Services at 541-882-3521 to register for New Student Orientation.
5. FERPA and confidentiality notice
According to federal law. KCC is allowed to share the “Directory Information” of its students, which includes your name and contact info. If you would like your information to be kept private, you can fill out a “Directory Information Withholding Request” and return it to the Business Office in Founders Hall. Withholding information can create difficulties, so we advise against it, but the choice is yours. Further, depending on your program of study, KCC must share information vital to your education with contracted educational service providers. All information is kept confidential and provided on a need-to-know basis.
6. Submit transcripts
If you have prior college credit, send official transcripts to: Klamath Community College, Attn: Transcripts, 7390 S. 6th Street, Klamath Falls, OR 97603.
