Counselors are available to assist ESL students with questions or concerns they may have that pertain to academic, cultural, and personal adjustment to KCC and the USA.  Since ESL students are often not only new to the college but also new to the country, we want these students to know that we are available to assist them with many issues related to this transitional period in their life.
