Student Clubs and Organizations

There are special interest clubs and organizations that offer opportunities for students to broaden the scope of their educational experiences. Students are encouraged to participate in the activities sponsored by the clubs and organizations. Membership in all organizations is open to any interested student.

No student club or organization may be established, conduct business, solicit funds, or sponsor activities unless the organization has been approved by Student Services. Students who wish to form a student organization should contact complete the Kirtland Club/Organization Form and return the form to the Student Service Office. 

Student I.D. Card

Identification cards are required for all registered Kirtland students. The identification cards are nontransferable and are valid for one college year. The card permits the student’s entry to many college or student-senate-sponsored functions at no charge or at a reduced rate.

Veterans Helping Veterans

The mission of the Veterans Helping Veterans at Kirtland Community College is to assist veterans from all eras of the military to more easily adjust from military to civilian life and to be a successful student at Kirtland Community College. Our mission includes serving those veterans (men and women) who are currently serving or who have ever served in the United States military to establish a network of lifelong friendships and to help them be aware of all related benefits and services for which he or she may qualify.

Kirtland students may also choose to participate in a self-enrolling Military-Connected Student Forum to connect and engage with other student veterans.
