Try out the Net Price Calculator. This calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance — including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses — minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year. 

Students who are classified as out-of-district, but wish to change their tuition status to in-district must turn in proof of residency 30 days prior to the first day of the semester they plan to attend JALC. Acceptable forms of proof of residency include:

  • A driver’s license with an in-district address
  • A state identification card with an in-district address
  • A voter’s registration card with an in-district address
  • A notarized letter from a parent or legal guardian documenting that the student lives at an in-district address, provided the student is under the age of 24.

Students scheduling prior to late registration will be sent an initial billing statement detailing tuition, fees, and the payment amount due. Students scheduling thereafter will have payment due on the day they register. Financial aid will only defer tuition payment if all forms are filled out and the file complete in the Financial Aid Office. Initial semester billing statements will be mailed May for the summer semester, May for the fall semester and November for the spring semester to students who have pre-scheduled.

All billing statements are sent to the student’s permanent address on file with the Admissions Office. It is the student’s responsibility to provide the college with an accurate address and telephone number.

To avoid a student’s schedule of classes being dropped (purged), either payment in full or approved payment arrangements along with initial payment must be received by the Business Office by noon on the due date shown on the initial billing statement.

Financial Aid Payments

Student financial aid is not available prior to the beginning of each semester when payment in full or payment arrangements must be made. Provided that there is a completed application on file with the Financial Aid Office, the billing statement will deduct any awarded student financial aid.

All PELL Grants, State MAP Grants, SEOG Grants, Loans and Perkins Loans will be applied directly to your account provided you have met all requirements for receiving your aid. Questions concerning loan disbursements should be directed to the Financial Aid Office by telephone, 618-985-3741, by mail to Financial Aid, John A. Logan College, 700 Logan College Road, Carterville, IL 62918 or E-mail to

Refund checks for excess financial aid funds will be mailed after funds have been received. Checks will be mailed to the permanent home address as indicated in our computer files.

Returned Check Policy

All checks returned by the bank as unpaid for any reason, will carry a penalty of $15 per returned check. Any account for tuition, fees, room and board paid by a check which is returned by the bank will be considered not paid.
