Payment due dates, methods of payment and online payment information.
Payment and Due Dates
Students are responsible for making payments by their scheduled payment due date. 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.
If payment is not made prior to the time Student Accounts and Payments closes on their due date any unpaid classes are at risk of being removed from the student's schedule.
It is the student's responsibility to withdraw from any course you do not want to be held financially responsible for.
*DO NOT RELY ON THE 'DROP FOR NON-PAYMENT PROCESS TO REMOVE YOU FROM YOUR SCHEDULE*
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.
Drop for non-payment is performed at the close of business (see office hours for specific times). Payment must be received by your tuition due date/time. If you are enrolled in the online automatic payment plan, this covers your entire schedule.
* Please be aware that all registration methods will be unavailable the evening of the payment due date until noon the following day.

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.
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.

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.
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 and Payments office must be informed of senior status each semester.
