Students are considered residents of the district if their legal residence is within
the boundaries of District #523 for at least 30 days immediately before 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 the 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
stationery and must be signed by either the supervisor or the director of human resources.
