Refund Policy

A 100% refund will be granted for classes dropped within the first 6% of the class, as measured using the start and end dates of each class. A 50% refund will be granted for classes dropped after 6% of the class has expired but within the first 12% of the class. The amount of refund is calculated from the date the class is dropped. The exact drop dates for each of your classes can be found on the Important Dates & Deadlines page.

Refunds will be made only after you drop your class, either in person or through myKC. You may apply any refund credits to the cost of other classes during the same semester. Otherwise, a refund will be mailed to you or credited to your credit card or bank account within three weeks of the class start date. A full refund will be granted for classes cancelled by the College. Refunds are not granted if a student has been withdrawn due to misconduct or delinquent attendance. This policy does not apply to Continuing Education classes.

If Financial Aid was used to pay for your tuition and fees, the refund will be applied to the financial aid programs that paid the charges. The Higher Education Amendments of 1998 have mandated additional requirements concerning refunds of tuition and fees to Title IV Financial Aid programs for students who drop or withdraw from classes for which Title IV funds were used. If you withdraw from all classes before 60% of the term has elapsed, you may owe a portion of the financial aid previously disbursed. For further information on this refund law, contact the Financial Aid office.

Refunds for noncredit classes

No refunds are issued after the first class session unless otherwise specified in the class listing.

A full refund will be granted for classes cancelled by Kishwaukee College.

Attendance Verification

Students who do not attend their class during the refund period will be dropped from the class roster and will be charged for the class.  Reduced classes / credits will be reflected in your enrollment status and may affect eligibility for athletics, scholarships, financial aid and other programs.  For online classes, logging into the class does not constitute attendance, as the student must be participating in a discussion or other class participation based upon the instructors discretion.
