Verifying your enrollment status

Enrollment status for financial aid can only be determined by courses that are required for your academic program. After you register each semester, remember to turn in a degree audit for evaluation or your award(s) will not be activated.

Special circumstances

Are you a student with special circumstances related to the financial aid process? Make an appointment with a financial aid staff member by calling 815-802-8550.

Important Announcement

Illinois MAP grant status - If you were eligible for the MAP grant, an award is included on your Award Letter. This award is an estimate. It is identified as “State of IL MAP Grant (Est).” State funding for these grants has not yet been appropriated. In other words, the money you receive could be less than what is shown. A final amount should be known by the fall financial aid disbursement date. You may still use Pell grant funds to cover your education costs. The Financial Aid Office at KCC will notify you in the case of a reduction. More information is available from the Illinois Student Assistance Commission by clicking here.
