KCC’s tuition for College Credit Division courses (beginning with Summer 2023) are currently $150 per credit hour for KCC district residents, plus fees of $19 per credit hour. Total cost of tuition plus fees for out-of-district Illinois residents tuition is $444 per credit hour; and total cost of tuition and fees for out-of-state residents is $856.01 per credit hour.

The current rate is published on the college website.

Senior citizens (60 years of age or older) residing in Illinois will not be assessed any tuition for credit division courses, provided sufficient tuition-paying students are enrolled in the class to cover the cost of offering it. Senior citizens will be assessed a $19 fee for each credit hour plus any required course fees.

The Educator’s Tuition Waiver program allows a tuition waiver for one credit class per fiscal year to teachers, principals, counselors – and others – who work in kindergarten through senior high school districts within KCC district 520. Tuition waivers cannot be used for classes offered through the office of Continuing Education and Career Services. To be eligible, the educator must have current state certification and work for a school licensed by the Illinois State Board of Education. A maximum of 100 tuition waivers will be granted each fiscal year. All course fees are paid by the educator who is enrolling. Tuition waivers are available in KCC’s office of Admissions and Registration.

Pursuant to a KCC board of trustees resolution, residents of Benton, Lake, and Newton counties in Indiana are charged the out-of-district Illinois resident rate for tuition. They are not charged out-of-state fees.

KCC reserves the right to waive out-of-district fees for residents of Milford and Iroquois West school districts.
