Welcome to Kirtland Community College! We appreciate the sacrifices our armed forces have made on behalf of our country and the dedication and commitment they have made to help ensure the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. Kirtland Community College is proud and honored to have you consider us as your college of choice.
I first started out in the military service which is what made me want to go into public service to begin with. I wanted to become a police officer so I went though Kirtland’s Criminal Justice program and enjoyed going through all the classes. I want to make a difference, not only for my success but to help others succeed as well.
We understand attending college can be a big transition and we are committed to doing everything we can do to make your educational experience a success.
