Financial Aid Information

​FAFSA stands for "Free Application for Federal Student Aid". What does that mean for you? Free money!
​The FAFSA is used by colleges and universities to determine how much help you need financially. Most schools require you to fill out the FAFSA to be eligible for any of their scholarships as well, even those that aren't need based (like academic scholarships, for example).

Talent Transcript

We now offer students a Talent Transcript.  Think of it as your talent profile.  It lays out your academic achievements at KCTC, plus other valuable accomplishments like certifications, leadership activities, attendance record, and technical and employability skills - all important to colleges and employers.  In fact, these "extras" are often the key to help you get that job or college placement.
