In addition to web episodes and BD-only episodes, there's a third possibility: they actually run on TV. Remember, there have been several shows in recent seasons that were only about 6 episodes, give or take a few. I was not too fond of that being a normal option for making shows, when 1 cour (and sequels being a rarity) is short enough already. But there's a big upside: A show being able to run about 1.5 cour, instead of being stuck with 1 or going all the way up to 2 (and the production committee choosing 1 most of the time), and Kokoro Connect could be doing that.
tvk has already slated Kokoro Connect
for 13 episodes broadcast. They're also the source of the 12 episodes for Achiga
which ended up having 3 extra episodes too, so I'd bet that the final arc of the show will be streamed/BD-only.
