The Annual Kittrell College Enrichment Program Is Back!

Kittrell College is holding its annual Enrichment Program again!

The Kittrell College Enrichment Program allows students to learn about a topic in a fun, creative, and informative way. It is an intense program that concludes with a certificate ceremony to celebrate your accomplishments! We have done enrichment programs that focused on Blockchains and Cryptocurrencies, Private-Label Companies, and Being an African American Entrepreneur in the 21st Century.

The Birth of the Collegiate Collaborative:
North Carolina University and Seminary; Latta University (Coming Soon); and Kittrell College

Three institutions are uniting to form a powerful and revolutionary educational dynasty. Of these three, one is being reborn and fashioned so that it will supersede the legacy it nearly lost.

Enter the New Kittrell College!

The new Kittrell College (KC) has returned to the educational structure once utilized by the now-dissolved, original Kittrell College (founded in 1886 in Kittrell, North Carolina).  The new Kittrell College has a strong, innovative infrastructure and campus created by our president, Dr. Stephanie Freeman. Today’s Kittrell College is being erected and established on theology, technology, innovation, dignity, and community.

We are not yet reunited with our HBCU family, but we are working on it!

As we work to be reconnected with the HBCU family, we can still celebrate with HBCU spirit and pride!  Join us for a Christ-centered, HBCU-influenced great time and education!

The Structure of the New Kittrell College is Powerful and Based on Cutting-Edge Ideas and Education!

Kittrell College is still a two-year college that focuses on skill-based learning and vocational training, but it has been expanded to encompass two sister institutions—North Carolina University and Latta University. Students who receive their Associate’s degree from Kittrell College are automatically eligible to continue their education at either North Carolina University, a state-of-the-art liberal arts institution, or Latta University, a cutting-edge skill-based, project-based, and vocational training institution.  Both North Carolina University and Latta University are four-year institutions.

Latta University (still under construction) is the natural continuation of Kittrell College’s programs, but students are welcome to combine vocational training and liberal arts education to form a unique degree program that is second to none.

Kittrell College’s Mission Statement and Connections to Its Sister Institutions

President Stephanie Freeman welcomes you!

Dr. Freeman sees the bright and wonderful future that awaits you at Kittrell College. She and the faculty and staff at Kittrell College want you to have a college experience that will give you wonderful memories every day.

Kittrell College is not an accredited institution recognized by the Department of Education.*

*The programs that will be NCCER accredited are not the same as the overall college accreditation. NCCER has its own procedures and requirements for its programs.

What is KC Doing to Become Accredited?

We are so glad you asked.

Kittrell College’s administrators, faculty, and staff want to provide students with the highest quality education available. Therefore, they govern KC effectively and have instituted various quality-control measures to make sure this institution becomes accredited as quickly as possible. Dr. Freeman also attends Department of Education (DOE) conference calls, webinars, and other events in order to prepare for accreditation. She is also listed with the DOE’s faith-based educators.

What else should I know about accreditation?

Some or all of KC’s credit hours may not transfer to other institutions. Also, some employers may not recognize KC’s degrees. You may also have other challenges related to attending a school that is not accredited by the Department of Education.

Once accepted, KC will operate under North Carolina’s Religious Exemption to Licensure. Please see the important statements below:

Degree programs of study offered by North Carolina University have been declared exempt from the requirements for licensure, under provisions of North Carolina General Statutes
Section (G.S.) 116-15 (d) for exemption from licensure with respect to religious
education. Exemption from licensure is not based upon assessment of program quality
under established licensing standards.
