KC is one of the best educational values you'll find.

According to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Kilgore College has one of the lowest costs per credit hour of any college or university in Texas.

Tuition and fees average about a quarter of the cost of a public university and less than 10 percent of the costs of a private university. A full year (24 credit hours) costs in-district students $1,392 and all other Texas residents just $3,048. And with the state Core Curriculum, courses successfully completed at Kilgore College are guaranteed to transfer to Texas public universities.

  • An out-of-district student is a resident of the State of Texas domiciled outside the Kilgore College District.
  • A nonresident student is a resident outside the state of Texas, including international students.

Refund Policy:

In order to receive a refund of tuition and fees, a student must officially drop or withdraw through the Registrar's Office. The college will refund tuition and fees for courses dropped or for withdrawal from school within the timetable published in the class schedules. Refunds will be issued in the same semester as the withdrawal. If a scheduled course fails to materialize, the college will return 100% of tuition and fees, with the exception of late and matriculation fees. A matriculation fee will be charged for students who enroll in courses and then completely withdraw from those courses for a particular semester. The college will not issue a refund to a student who does not have a clear financial record with the college. See the current semester schedule for actual dates of check disbursements.

Note: Class day is defined as the day the semester or session is designated to begin and each school day thereafter. The above timetable applies to all refunds, including refunds to early-registered students who withdraw before classes start. No refunds will be made earlier than this schedule.

An online application for housing accompanied with a $200 deposit plus a $10 non-refundable criminal history screening fee must be filed with the Office of Residential Life. The deposit is separate from the fees for room and board. The refund policy for the deposit may be found in the student handbook. Additional information may be obtained from the Office of Residential Life located in the Devall Student Center or you may reach us at (903) 983-8191.
