On the right-hand side of the Student Center screen you can view your Holds, your To-Do List, and your Messages.
Holds – this section displays any holds you have on your account. Holds may be related to admissions, financial aid, tuition payment, etc… Holds may keep you from registering for classes or have other penalties. Holds should be dealt with in a timely manner.
To-Do List – this section displays any tasks that you need to complete in order to avoid a hold being placed on your account. These tasks typically require turning in completed paperwork/documentation in a timely manner. So, if you have items on your To-Do List, DO IT!

If you have specific questions about your Financial Aid, you will need to visit the Financial Aid Office for assistance.
In order for your financial aid to pay for books, you must go to the Bookstore Release section and complete the online form. You will only have to complete this form one time.
Please read all sections of the form. Once you have read and understood all the items on the form, check EACH radio button under EACH statement.
Please ensure that you select the preferred radio button to indicate:
YES (I want to charge books based on my financial eligibility)
NO, (I DO NOT want to charge books from the bookstore)
Click the “Save” button
Once you have completed the online form, you will take your student ID card OR a state-issued photo ID AND your KCTCS class schedule (version with your student ID number) to the bookstore to charge books.
The amount charged is placed on your student account as a bookstore charge and collected from financial aid funds when available.
Students who charge books are responsible for paying the college in the event financial aid does not cover the bookstore charge.
There are three ways to make an online payment:
An Electronic Check, which is a payment from a checking or savings account
A Credit Card payment, which will be billed to your credit card.
A “NO SHOW” for in-person (face to face) classes is defined as a student who does not attend the first class and has not contacted the instructor by phone, email, or in person before the class meets.
A “NO SHOW” for online classes is defined as a student who does not access Blackboard AND participate in a class activity as directed in the class syllabus or contact the instructor by phone, email, or in person before the class meets. Logging in to the class periodically does not constitute attendance.
Students who fail to attend their first class or fail to contact their instructor are completely dropped from the class as if they had never enrolled in it.
If you are reported as a “NO SHOW” by one of your instructors, this will affect your financial aid.
Financial Aid funds are NOT disbursed to students until attendance in class has been confirmed by faculty.
Grants and KEES are reduced for students reported as a “NO SHOW” and you loans may be affected.
Students who are reported as a “NO SHOW” after receiving a disbursement may be required to repay financial aid funds.
