Kaskaskia College will be hosting a special spring 2016 Registration Day at the main campus and all Education Centers on Saturday, January 9 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Departments providing services for the day will include Advisement, Admissions and Registration, Placement Testing, Financial Aid, the Library, and the Bookstore. Advising will be available on a walk-in basis that day. The Cashier’s Office will be open to accept payments or assist in setting up payment plans through NelNet.
New students or returning students who have stopped out for at least a year are encouraged to apply prior to the 9th by completing the Student Admissions Form online at www.kaskaskia.edu and choose the “Apply Now” link. Students should also bring their high school transcripts, college transcripts, and ACT scores. Students that have not previously taken the ACT should plan to test for math and English class placement by contacting the KC Success Center at 545-3160 for more information.
In order to register on this date, students need to be aware that their Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) needs to be complete or payment of 40% of their spring tuition will be required to register for classes on the 9th. Assistance with setting up payment plans with NelNet will be available through the Cashier’s Office. Financial Aid staff will also be available to help in completing the FAFSA process or you can complete it at home at fafsa.ed.gov. Once your FAFSA is finalized, you will then be reimbursed at a later date depending on your eligibility for aid.
Those students seeking assistance with the 2015-2016 FAFSA application should plan to bring their 2014 U.S. tax forms as well as 2014 tax forms for parents or spouses as appropriate. Records for untaxed income such as social security, welfare, AFDC, veteran’s benefits, or child support received or paid should also be provided.
