Tuition is due one week before the term starts. Kirkwood reserves the right to cancel your registration if you have not made payment arrangements or paid your tuition in full, but this does not relieve you from your responsibility to pay the bill or drop classes. If you do not plan to attend a class you're registered for, you must drop it by the last day to drop for that particular class to avoid owing tuition. Failure to attend class or telling a staff member/faculty that you do not plan to attend class does not cancel your registration or your bill.
Payment is due one week prior to the start of the term. Payment arrangements consist of:
- Applying for financial aid and listing Kirkwood on your FAFSA.
- Paying your bill online using E-cashier.
- Arranging for a FACTS installment plan.
- Sending confirmation, in writing, to the One Stop office that your tuition is being paid by an outside agency.
Here are a variety of ways you can make your tuition payment:

FACTS Installment Payment Plan
To help you meet your educational expenses, Kirkwood Community College is proud to offer FACTS as a convenient budget plan. This is not a loan program. You have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The cost to budget your interest-free monthly payment plan is a $25 per semester nonrefundable FACTS enrollment fee. You may budget your tuition and fees in either an automatic bank payment (ACH) or with a credit card option. Click here for the form.
You can get a receipt printed at the One Stop office on the 2nd floor of Kirkwood Hall. It shows the tuition paid each semester. If you need to have proof of the classes you paid for, please retain your tuition bill or your grade report. Call 398-5679 to request that a receipt be mailed.
Every year in late January, a form will be mailed to the student, showing the total tuition billed during the previous calendar year. This form will assist the student in claiming The American Opportunity Tax Credit when filing federal income tax forms. It will be important that the student has provided the One Stop office with an accurate mailing address.
