BALANCES DUE NOTICE
Summer semester 2017 payments are due Friday, May 5, 2017.  

NOW is the time to check your account balance via the eServices site at www.rctc.edu/eservices.

If you need instructions for viewing or printing your account balance, go to: www.rctc.edu/eservices/tuition-view-print-account-balance.html

 Important Information regarding student accounts:

  • RCTC no longer mails statements – it is the student’s responsibility to monitor and manage their accounts through the eServices site as detailed below.
  • Failure to check your account does not release you from your financial obligation to Rochester Community and Technical College.
  • Payments received after the due date will be subject to late and/or payment plan fees.
  • Financial aid funds are applied to student accounts after the drop/add period, on Mondays. Financial Aid funds are first applied toward your outstanding balance.  If Financial Aid funds remain after tuition, fees and all outstanding charges are paid, the remaining balance (often referred to as a ‘change check’) is released to the student either in the form of a Direct Deposit to their personal bank account, or in the form of a paper check.
  • Students who have not received their financial aid by the payment deadline are required to pay.
  • All balances must be paid in full prior to registering for future semesters. Any unpaid balances will be turned over for collection. Rochester Community and Technical College uses the Minnesota Department of Revenue Collection Division to collect any unpaid fees.
