Title

KENTUCKY COMMUNITY AND TECHNICAL COLLEGE SYSTEM (KCTCS)  

Company Description

A Statewide System

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) is the newest postsecondary education institution in the Commonwealth. KCTCS was created by the Kentucky Postsecondary Education Improvement Act of 1997 (House Bill 1). Our 16 colleges and on 68 campuses are deeply rooted in the educational history and tradition of Kentucky. July 1, 2008, marked the 10th anniversary of the unification of Kentucky’s postsecondary community colleges and technical institutions, some dating back to the early 1900’s.

In Your Community

From Ashland to Paducah, from Covington to Bowling Green, and online, KCTCS colleges are strategically located to provide accessible education and workforce training that is relevant and responsive to the needs of Kentucky’s students, business and industry leaders, and the communities they serve. Credentials

KCTCS offers certificates (some as short as 6 weeks) and diplomas as well as two-year associate degrees in over 600 credit program offerings. The most popular area of study is the baccalaureate transfer program, which allows a student to earn an associate degree at a KCTCS college and transfer to a four-year Kentucky institution.

Focus on Workforce

While emphasizing its historical mission to provide general education, KCTCS is expanding its focus on occupational/technical education. In the past 10 years, KCTCS has become the largest provider of postsecondary education and workforce training in the Commonwealth. In 2008-09, KCTCS colleges provided workforce services to 5,808 businesses and industries and approximately 52,000 employees.
