Paying for College

Paying for College

At John A. Logan College we pride ourselves on having one of the lowest in-district tuition rates in the state (visit our Tuition and Fees page for more information). In addition, our students are often eligible for financial assistance including financial aid and/or scholarships. We offer tuition payment plans as well as multiple ways to pay your bill. At John A. Logan College we are here to help you every step of the way.

Account Information

A student’s account with the Bursar Office accommodates all charges and credits directly related to the student’s cost of education. Charges are defined as tuition, fees and/or other fees charged to all students. Credits include all moneys applied toward a student’s charges.

Payment arrangements must be made with the Bursar Office when parents and/or students are unable to make payment in full from personal funds by 4:30 p.m. on the due date shown on the student account statement.

Acceptable payment arrangements consist of the following:

Payment of all fees in full by 4:30 p.m. on the due date shown on the student account statement. Cash, checks, credit cards (MC, VISA, Discover Card, and American Express) and debit cards are acceptable forms of payment.

Financial Aid

The primary goal of the John A. Logan College Office of Financial Aid is to make it possible to
attend college for students who might otherwise be deprived of a college education because of inadequate funds. Consequently, John A. Logan College promotes grant, scholarship, and
employment opportunities for deserving, qualified students who must find the funds to attend.

Scholarships – John A. Logan College Foundation

Through the generosity of our donors, the Foundation has helped build new facilities, purchase computers for classrooms, replace equipment, buy interactive software for students, and award scholarships, which help students pay for tuition, books and other expenses.

We impact a diverse group of individuals who believe in the value of an education and the opportunities knowledge brings. Our students go on to continue their education at four-year universities or do important work in our community.
