Your Student Account
By registering for classes, you enter into a legally binding contract to pay all tuition and fees, including any nonrefundable fees. You also acknowledge that failure to make the required payment by the due date may result in additional late and installment fees, inability to register for classes, and withholding of a transcript and/or diploma.
Your student account is a record of all charges and payments made to your account. Your account includes financial aid payments, including scholarships, grants, loan disbursements, student service fees, technology fees and, if you are living on-campus, your housing room and board.
To check your student account, go to the e-Services section of this website.
To allow someone else to view your student record information, please complete the Authorization to Release Student Information request and submit it to the Registration and Records Office.

How to Pay
- Check or money order - Payable to Rainy River Community College
- Credit Card - VISA, MasterCard, Discover
- RRCC Payment Plan
- Financial Aid Disbursement - Your charges will be deferred until aid is applied to your account. If you do not have enough financial aid to cover all of your charges, you must pay the balance by the due date or establish an RRCC Payment Plan. Please keep in mind that if you plan to use loans as part of your financial aid plan, you need to be sure you’ve completed all 3 steps (request the amount online through the Financial Aid page, signed the electronic promissory note for RRCC, and completed the entrance counseling if you are a first time student loan borrower).
Payment Due Dates
You can check your account balance on e-Services to see your tuition costs. You will not receive a billing statement in the mail. The amount due for tuition and fee charges, on-campus housing or meal charges, and any previously unpaid balances will appear on your account in e-Services. You will need to compare your financial aid awards to your billing statement to determine the remaining balance owed.
Billing Statements and Financial Aid Awards can be viewed on e-Services
What happens if I don't pay?
In addition to late payment fees, student housing eviction, and campus meal plan shut-off, a "hold" will be placed on your academic record. This hold must be cleared before you will be allowed to register for future classes or obtain a transcript or diploma. Past due accounts may be subject to collection procedures. Collection can include court action and referral to outside collection agencies. You are responsible for any and all costs necessary for the collection of any amount not paid when due.
What happens if I decided not to attend RRCC?
Once you have registered for classes, you are responsible for all charges on your account. If you decide not to attend RRCC, you must drop your classes on-line (through e-Services) or contact the Registrar at 218-285-2207 to drop your class(es) over the phone BEFORE the semester starts. If the semester has already started, you must contact RRCC to officially withdraw. You are not automatically officially withdrawn if you do not attend any of your classes.
You must drop classes within five days (short term classes have shorter fee drop periods) of the semester start date to get a 100% refund of your tuition payment.
Drop for Non-Payment
After the fifth class day, students are automatically dropped for non-payment unless they have:
You will be charged a $30 late fee if you have unpaid charges on your account and have not established a FACTS payment plan by the following dates:
- Fall Semester - October 15
- Spring Semester - February 20
What if a third party wants to pay my bill?
If you have an authorization for RRCC to bill a sponsoring agency for your tuition and/or fees, have the sponsoring agency contact Emily Ahrens, Business Manager, at 218-285-2203 or Emily.email@example.com
How are payments from outside sources applied to my bill?
Most grants, scholarships and loans are applied directly to your account by the Financial Aid Office. If your financial aid pays your bill in full and there is money remaining on your account, you are entitled to a refund.
How do I get my excess financial aid?
If your financial aid exceeds your RRCC balance owed, you will be awarded a refund. Please bring a photo ID with you to claim your check. Checks are disbursed after 10am on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Business Office, at front desk of the Administration Building.
