Payment Due Dates

  • Payment and Due Dates

    What happens if I don't pay my bill on time? 

    Students who do not pay their bill by the due date run the risk of being dropped from their classes. This means that any unpaid classes are at risk of being removed from the student's schedule.

    All students are responsible for making payments by their scheduled payment due date. 

    Students have until the close of the business day on the due date to pay their bill (see office hours for specific times). A student's payment must be received by the tuition due date/time. If a student is enrolled in the online automatic payment plan, this covers the student's entire schedule.

    * Please be aware that all registration methods will be unavailable the evening of the payment due date until noon the following day.

    • e-bills are sent to your JJC email account
    • View your account charges/activity 24/7 via MyJJC

    If a student decides that they don't want to attend the classes they registered for, they should drop their course by the refund date (which can be found in MyJJC under the student schedule) to avoid any financial liability to JJC.

    What if I decide I don't want to take the class I registered for? 

    It is the student's responsibility to withdraw from any course they do not want to be held financially responsible for. Even if students don't make their payment due date, they must still contact JJC about dropping their class. *DO NOT RELY ON THE 'DROP FOR NON-PAYMENT PROCESS TO REMOVE YOU FROM YOUR SCHEDULE*

    Students who are seeking to drop classes should contact the Office of Records and Registration to clearly understand any impact these decisions may have on their finances and academic goals. Call (815)280-2497 or email for assistance.

    Important Reminder: Every class has its own refund and drop date. Please visit Registration's refund policy page for more information on withdrawal, refunds and appeals.

  • What is Drop for Non-Payment?

    Joliet Junior College's payment due date is determined by the date you register for classes. If full payment, enrollment into a payment plan or having Financial Aid or third-party financial assistance in place is not complete prior to the time Student Accounts and Payments closes on your payment due date then any unpaid classes are at risk of being removed from your schedule. If classes are removed from your schedule for non-payment, other students will then have the opportunity to register for those classes.

    Please note:

    Students are responsible for making payments by their scheduled payment due dates. A student that decides not to attend the course(s) in which he/she is registered for, is responsible for dropping the course(s) by the refund date of the course(s) (found on my student schedule) to avoid any financial liability to the college.

    A student who has been dropped for non-payment will only be able to re-register if the class(es) are not full and if the student immediately pays the amount due for class(es) upon registration.

    If you are dropped from your class(es) for nonpayment, you may re-register in person providing you pay immediately, or call Registration and pay immediately with Visa, MasterCard or Discover. You will not be able to re-register until payment is made.

Payment Methods

Online ACH (e-check) available at no charge. A 1.95% non-refundable convenience fee will be assessed to all tuition/fee credit card transactions.

        • Saves money - using Flywire will save you hundreds of dollars on each tuition payment versus traditional bank wires.
      • How it Works
        • Flywire accepts payments from any country - typically in your home currency. We work to secure you wholesale foreign exchange rates, which are significantly lower than rates offered by traditional banks.

  • Third Party Invoicing

    Tuition and fee charges are the student’s financial responsibility. If you are requesting the college to invoice a third party with intent of covering the full balance or a portion of your charges, it is your responsibility to ensure that payment is applied to your account prior to your due date. The college will invoice third parties on your behalf as long as there is no grade or class attendance stipulations required by the third party. All document requests need to be received in the Student Accounts & Payments office (see contact information to the left) prior to your tuition due date. In the event your charges are left uncovered (sponsor does not pay as anticipated) all remaining balances become your responsibility.

  • Senior Citizens

    District 525 residents 65 years of age and older may enroll, tuition free, in college credit or general interest courses. Senior citizens will be required to pay for all other mandatory fees associated with the course(s). The Student Accounts & Payments office must be informed of senior status each semester.
