To be eligible for in-district tuition, a student must provide a letter to the Office of Student Registration Services prior to registration. The requirements for the letter are as follows:

  • The letter must be written on company letterhead and include the company name, in-district address and phone number. It must be signed and dated by a supervisor, owner or representative of the Human Resources Department of the company.
  • The letter needs to contain the student's name, social security number or student ID and start date with the company. The employment start date must be on or before the start of the term and must state that the student is a full-time employee working at least 35 hours per week. A letter must be provided each semester and will be verified with the employer.

Final decisions on residency status are made by the Office of Student Registration Services. No tuition adjustments are made after mid-term. Call (630) 942-2377 for more information.

PAYMENT POLICY: All students are required to pay their tuition and fees at the time of registration. Students may pay by cash, check or credit card. Students unable to pay in full must enroll in our convenient "Payment Plans". Students receiving financial aid (i.e., grants and loans) must enroll in the College's deferred payment plan. Direct links to these payment options are found in myACCESS.
