Tuition, Fees and Refund

About Tuition and Fees Costs

All tuition and fees at KCKCC are subject to approval and/or change by the Board of Trustees. Tuition at the College conforms with regulations established by the Kansas State Department of Education, authorized under the 1965 Community College Act and its amendments.


Money generated from fees is used to finance the Jewell Student Center, student activities on campus, scholarships, broadband access on campus, computer lab access and upgrades, transcripts, and excess graduation costs

Tuition and fees are determined by course load and legal residence of students. All tuition and fees must be paid in full at the time of enrollment. The College reserves and extends its right to withhold copies of academic transcripts, refuse enrollment, and/or administratively withdraw students who have not satisfied all financial obligations at KCKCC.

Payment of Financial Obligations

Students are expected to make prompt payment of financial obligations, such as parking fines, library fines, graduation fees, special fees, and loans at the College. Students with unpaid accounts will have a hold placed on their records and are not allowed to enroll, cannot receive academic transcripts or diplomas, or have academic information released from the College until their outstanding accounts have been paid.

Refund of Tuition and Fees

To obtain a refund for tuition and fees, students must officially drop their class (es) in the Admissions and Records Office within the time frames listed below. Exact dates for refunds are published in the Class Schedule each semester. Refunds are not allowed after the published dates. In case of a course cancellation or a class schedule revision made by the College, a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees is issued. Refunds are processed by the Business Office in approximately two weeks.

  • 100% refund for tuition and fees if classes are dropped and processed in the Admissions and Records Office before - but not on - the first day of the semester, session, or class. This includes semester, summer, 4 to 8 week, late starting, and mini-courses.

  • 90% refund for tuition and fees if classes are dropped and processed in the Admissions and Records Office within the first week of classes (five working days) for semester courses, summer courses, 4 to 8 week courses, and late starting courses.

  • 50% refund for tuition and fees if classes are dropped and processed by the Admissions and Records Office within the second week of classes (10 working days) for semester courses only.

  • 100% refund for courses less than four (4) weeks in length if students withdraw (drop) prior to the start of the first class period. No refund will be issued after the class begins. Refunds are calculated based on the day the student officially drops a class in the Admissions and Records Office, not when the student stops attending class.

If the student has received federal Title IV student financial aid during the term (Federal PELL , ACG or SEOG grants, Federal Stafford Loan, or a PLUS Loan), the student may be entitled to a pro rata or federal refund. Students who do not receive federal Title IV aid are not entitled to these refunds. Further information is available in the Financial Aid Office and Business Office.
