Some Kilgore College students are eligible for aid through a Texas Public Educational Grant grant, the college said.

Kilgore College continuing education students can now apply for financial aid to cover the costs of classes in certain CE programs thanks to a Texas Public Educational Grant (TPEG) the college received.

The grant awarded to KC allows application for funds for students who are enrolled in the following programs: pharmacy technology, phlebotomy, lineman program, commercial driving license (CDL), human resource specialist, industrial/residential electrical technology, patient care technology and nurse aide.

The grant is based solely on student need for eligibility and is only available to students enrolled in the programs listed above.

Instead of the FAFSA application, students can complete and submit a KC Financial Aid Application online, available in the AccessKC portal (https://accesskc.kilgore.edu/ICS).

Once logged in, click the Application/Forms link on the left-hand side of the screen, then scroll down to the KC Financial Aid Application on the left-hand side of the screen.

To qualify, students must also submit a high school transcript, complete a Verification Worksheet with KC and provide proof of income with tax returns, SSI, VA non-educational benefits, etc.

Male students must also be registered for Selective Service.

For more information on how to receive a TPEG grant, contact Jackie Kelley, financial aid director, at (903) 983-8171 or jkelley@kilgore.edu.

  • Pharmacy Technology: $916
