Fitness Center for College Credit
You can earn college credit for working out. Your workout schedule is up to you. After an initial orientation, there are no set meeting times. Work out as often as you’d like.
The Personal Fitness class is the cost of one semester of college credit plus a $20 course fee. Enrollment semesters are:
- Fall: August - December
- Spring: January - May
- Summer: June - July
For high school students, the Personal Fitness class credits can be held in escrow until you graduate, then the credits can be applied as college credits at KCC or another college.
To join, register and pay at KCC’s Student Affairs Division, Riverfront Campus, 100 College Drive, Kankakee, Illinois.
Students enrolling in the Personal Fitness course for the first time must schedule an assessment and orientation session. Contact the Fitness Center at 802-8610 to make an appointment.
