Payments and Refunds

You must pay for your classes in full by these payment deadlines.

It is your responsibility to drop a class selection if payment is not possible. You cannot rely on the de-registration process to drop classes for non-payment, especially when you apply for financial aid, scholarships or other payment assistance.   

If you do not pay tuition and fees in full or pay with a non-sufficient fund check, your registration will be canceled.

Four payment options

  • Cash: Accepted only if you are registering in person. Do not mail cash.
  • Personal check: Make checks payable to Kankakee Community College.
  • Credit cards: Accepted credit cards are VISA, Discover and MasterCard. Credit card payments are accepted in person, by phone and online
  • Tuition payment plan

Tuition payment plan

For your convenience, we offer an online tuition payment plan.

Sign up with FACTS and tuition and fees are automatically deducted from your checking or savings account or credit card. Payments are spread over several months.

FACTS is not a loan program. There are no interest or finance charges. A non-refundable enrollment fee is charged each semester. For more information, review our FACTS page or contact the accounting office at 815-802-8140.

Online payment

You may pay online through the Make a Payment option at KCConnect. Payments must be made in full with a credit card.

Tuition refund

If the final day for a refund falls on a weekend or a date when the college is closed, the refund deadline is the following business day.

Course withdrawals

Tuition refunds for withdrawals from college credit division courses are based on refund date. Refund dates are printed on your registration statement. You can receive a 100 percent refund through 10 percent of the course (approximately 12 calendar days for a 16-week course). No refund will be given if you withdraw after 10 percent of the course has been completed.

Course cancellation

You will receive a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees for a canceled course unless you transfer to another class. In that case, the tuition and fees will be applied to the new course.
