Students are considered residents of the district if their legal residence is within
the boundaries of District #523 for at least 30 days immediately prior to the start
of the term for which they wish to register. However, students who have moved from
an out-of-district or out-of-state residence to an in-district residence for reasons
other than attending Kishwaukee College are exempt from the 30-day requirement. District
#523 boundaries include the high school districts of DeKalb, Genoa-Kingston, Hiawatha
at Kirkland, Indian Creek (formerly Shabbona and Waterman), Rochelle, and Sycamore.
Also included are individuals residing in the eastern half of the Oregon Community
District #220, and the residents of that portion of Lee Center Community District
#271, lying east of the West Brooklyn spur (Paw Paw High School attendance center).
The Student Services Office will make the final determination of residency status.
Employment in the District: Students who are not residents of Kishwaukee College District
523 but who are employed full-time (35 hours per week) in the district are eligible
for in-district tuition and fees. To qualify, a letter must be on file in the Student
Services Office each semester prior to the student’s registration. The letter must
be written on company stationary and must be signed by either the supervisor or the
director of human resources.
