Need Help Paying for College?
Paying for college plays a big role in the college decision process. Tuition at Kishwaukee College is one of the most affordable in the state. Per credit hour, Kishwaukee College tuition and fees are a fraction of the cost most of Illinois’s public universities.
Transfer students who elect to complete the first two years of their college education at Kishwaukee will save a substantial amount of money without sacrificing quality. Kishwaukee College students who transfer to state universities are just as or more successful academically than students who spent their first two years at the university. In fact, over the last five years, the average GPA of Kishwaukee College graduates who transferred to Illinois Public Universities was 2.97 and over that same time period more than 97% were satisfied with the way their courses transferred to those universities.
Summer Session Information
Financial aid is very limited during the summer session.
Federal regulations state that you may be eligible for a Pell Grant for summer if you did not receive a Pell Grant as a full-time student during both the Fall Semester 2012 and the Spring Semester 2013. Summer Pell Grants are awarded based on the 2012-2013 FAFSA information. For example, if you did not attend college in the Fall Semester 2012, you have remaining Pell Grant eligibility that can be used for the Summer Session 2013. Or if you attended as a part-time student in either the Fall 2012 or Spring 2013 Semesters, you may have remaining Pell Grant eligibility for Summer Session 2013.
**Kishwaukee College DOES NOT process Direct Loans for the Summer Session.**
Student employment is very limited during the Summer Session. No Federal Work-Study jobs are available during summer.
