Nelnet payment plan

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

After you sign up for Nelnet, tuition and fees are automatically deducted from your checking or savings account or credit card. Payments are spread over several months.

Nelnet 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 Nelnet page or contact the Accounting Office at 815-802-8140.


To pay online, sign in to the self-service module  - choose Student Finance, then Make a Payment. Payments must be made in full with a credit card.

Payment policy

You must pay for your classes in full by the published payment deadlines

KCC does not deregister students from courses for non-payment after the refund date for a class. It is your responsibility to drop a class by the refund date or you will be obligated to pay for it.

Pending or partial financial aid and scholarships may hold you in your classes. Please review your registration statement for exact refund dates. Dropping classes may affect your financial aid.

Course refund dates are listed on your registration statement, viewable by logging into the self-service module and choosing Student Planning.
