COVID-19 Communications

Dear Students,

Welcome to the spring semester at Kishwaukee College.  Thank you for continuing your education with us.  The College is dedicated to helping you achieve academic success and your educational goals.

While the campus is open, procedures for entering the building, services being offered in-person, and hours of operation have been modified.  Students on campus for any reason- attending class, utilizing campus resources, or studying/ using internet services- must wear a mask at all times and practice social distancing.  Please visit the COVID-19 Student Resources Page for more information on what to do prior to coming to and while on campus.  The Contact Us webpage has up to date information on services available and office hours.  Be sure to note the limited entrances open to gain access to campus.  The health and safety of our campus community continues to be our number one priority.

As you begin to prepare for the spring semester, having the required course materials and technology is important to your success.  The College has several resources available to you to support these needs, including the Bookstore, Textbook Loan Program, the Library, and our Chromebook/Laptop loan program.  The information on obtaining course materials for spring, please visit the Course Materials Pick-Up webpage.

If you are registered for BIO 105, BIO 202, BIO 213, BIO 258, BIO 259, CHE 111, CHE 210, or CHE 211 you will or have received an email regarding the microscope and/or material kit required for these courses.  For this semester, these materials are being provided at no added cost to students enrolled.  If you have questions, please email officeofinstruction@kish.edu

As a reminder, we have made several changes to the tuition payment process for Spring 2021.  Students will not be dropped from courses for non-payment, however:

  • If you do not attend courses you are registered for, and do not drop them by the 100% refund deadline, you will be required to pay for the course(s).
  • Students have until the 100% drop deadline, to drop on their own for a full refund.  To determine 100% drop deadline for a course, view the Spring 2021 Drop/Withdrawl Dates document on our web for specific course refund dates.
  • The College is waiving the $25 fee for students who enroll in a payment plan. For more information on the payment plan visit the payment plan webpage or email the Business Office at busserv@kish.edu with questions.

This spring semester begins January 19.  Please continue to reach out to your academic advisor or counselor with any questions regarding your spring schedule or any other questions.

Thank you for choosing Kish.  Take care and be safe.
