Whether you plan on eventually transferring to a university or are just intending to gain an associates degree, etc., WKCTC is the perfect place! They have amazing entry level courses and teachers that actually care about each individual students instead of their salary. This is a great place for recently graduated students and for adults wanting to further an education.

My experience at West Kentucky Community and Technical College has been phenomenal. I am a student at a local high school, and I was offered the opportunity to take college classes and participate in college life at WKCTC on a daily basis. This program has saved my life. We had three schools consolidate into one ginormous school and a whopping number of over 2,000 students attend this school. Finding a crowd to fit into was hard, but making a few friends here and there made it bearable. Moving to WKCTC has made my life exceptionally better. Not only am I working towards my degree in marketing, but I am also away from all of the drama and immaturity that comes with high school. West Kentucky Community and Technical College has changed my life. I am now put face to face with so many more responsibilities than the average high schooler has to come in contact with. WKCTC is the place for me. The beautifully landscaped campus is my home away from home.
West Kentucky is a great 2-year community college, with amazing educational opportunities and a great staff that are willing to help you in any way that they can. With many opportunities available the staff helps you succeed in your career and also helps you find jobs once you graduate.
