School Details

Established in 1997, the Kentucky Community and Technical College System organized technical schools and public two-year community colleges into a single statewide structure. The community colleges of KCTCS award Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, and Associate in Applied Science degrees, along with diploma and certificate programs. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees provide additional transfer opportunities into four-year institutions. In addition, Kentucky Community and Technical College System remains the largest state provider in distance education offering more than 70 online programs.

Distance education programs are delivered by the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), rather than organized by individual community colleges. The community colleges through KCTCS maintain an open admission policy.
