Please note: Insufficient payment will result in your classes being dropped. You must pay in full or enroll with FACTS to re-register for classes.

Payment Options

Summer Semester | Fall Semester | Spring Semester

Students (including students with financial aid) have two payment options:

  • Payment in full
  • Enroll in an interest free FACTS payment plan

It is KCC’s policy that all students must pay in full or enroll in a FACTS payment plan within 24 hours of registration to avoid being dropped from your classes.

There is a $30 non-refundable enrollment fee each semester for activating an account in the FACTS payment plan.

For more detailed information on the FACTS payment plan options, click here.

Financial Aid Students

All financial aid and scholarship students MUST enroll in a FACTS payment plan even if your award package will cover your balance in full.

The $30 non-refundable enrollment fee will not be assessed until your account with FACTS has been activated. You will not be activated into a payment plan until after your financial aid transmits and only if your award does not pay your account balance in full.

If you have an outstanding balance after financial aid transmits, you will be notified by Nelnet and given the option to either pay the balance in full or be automatically activated into the FACTS payment plan.

Mail Delivery

Mailings of tuition refunds and checks for financial aid balances are labeled “Postmaster Do Not Forward” or “Return Service Requested.” Undelivered mail is returned to KCC. When discrepancies are found, a hold is placed on your record, and residency must be proven by you, before any further registration or financial transactions are allowed.

Other Important Information

Specific information concerning determination of residency for tuition purposes, tuition refund policy, withdrawal policy, veterans benefits eligibility, financial aid, and federal income tax credit can be found in the College catalog, available in the Student Center.

Michigan Income Tax Credit

A nonrefundable Michigan income tax credit for college tuition and fees paid on behalf of a student is not available for 2011.

To qualify for this credit the student must attend a Michigan institution of higher education which certifies that tuition will not increase in the ensuing academic year by more than the preceding year’s rate of inflation.  Kellogg Community College has not been approved by the State of Michigan for the 2011 Tax Year and you will not be eligible to claim this credit.
