  • Changing/Establishing your password
  • Info about your k#
  • Tuition payment
  • Financial aid documentation
  • Searching and how-to register for classes
  • General Student FAQs.

Logging in will enable you full-access to all confidential information specific to your Kirkwood record, including:

  • Change/Access User Account information
  • Access Financial information: Direct Deposit, Tax Info, Tuition Payment
  • Access Financial Aid: Checklists, Activate/Change loans, Help with documentation
  • Register: Searching/Registering, Add/Drop, Waitlist info
  • Academic Planning: Degree Audit, Graduation App

The Kirkwood student email system is the primary tool for official communication from the college.

Be sure to check it often, you'll get important information from your instructors, as well as notifications from advising, enrollment, and financial aid sent to your student e-mail rather than by postal mail. 

The format of your Kirkwood student email address is: firstname-lastname@student.kirkwood.edu (Example: joe-smith@student.kirkwood.edu) If your first and last name are being used already, a number will be added to your email address to make it unique.

Your email account remains active only for 9 months after completing your last class. All documents and emails will not be accessible after that time. If you return to Kirkwood your email will be reactivated at that time.
