New Courses Added for 2022-23 School Year
Fall 2022 // College Orientation (Seniors)
This course provides information pertinent to students who are college-bound or considering pursuing higher education. Visits to college campuses will provide hands-on experiences and students will be connected to resources by guest speakers from college institutions. Completing admissions and scholarship applications and connecting students to financial aid opportunities will be a primary focus. Exploring post-secondary educational options with guidance and encouragement in order to align with the student's Individual Plan of Study (IPS) and meet personal, educational, and career goals will be emphasized. Course content will help develop effective time and stress management skills and strengthen verbal and written communication skills.
Spring 2023 // College and Career Exploration (Juniors & Seniors)
This course is designed to help students understand options for post high school graduation. The student's Individual Plan of Study (IPS) will be referenced as a guide to research college and career paths and connect them to off campus experiences that will aid in decision-making for their future. Life skills such as time management, effective communication, and financial planning will be discussed with a focus on study and test-taking skills, resumes, cover letters, and interviewing.

Beginning in the spring of 1998, the presidents of six Kansas community colleges met to evaluate an online means of offering courses to their student populations. From these early meetings, EDUKAN was formed. We are not a separate institution, but instead, a cooperative effort between member colleges to offer courses via the internet beginning Fall 1999.
Students who enroll in our online programs will be able to take coursework that can lead to an associate degree from one of four current, participating institutions.
The institutions currently involved include Barton Community College, in Great Bend; Dodge City Community College, in Dodge City; Pratt Community College, in Pratt; and Seward County Community College, in Liberal.
