Tuition at Red Rocks Community College

During the 2020-21 academic year, some or all of the instructional formats may change due to an emergency situation affecting college operations, public safety, or public health, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuition and fees are charged at the beginning of the semester and will remain in place regardless of any changes in instructional format. Tuition and fees will not be refunded in the event the curriculum delivery format changes for any part of the 2020-21 academic year.

During the fall of 2020 the Cashier's office will be open Monday through Thursday from 9 AM to 5 PM and closing for lunch from 12 PM to 1 PM.   We are taking phone calls but we are working with limited staff in the office so please be patient. Friday's we are working remotely and do not have phone hours.

If you have questions you may call during our office hours or you can email us anytime at RRCC.CashiersOffice@rrcc.edu.  Emails are generally returned within two business days.

Funding Options : Financial Aid, Scholarships, Payment Plans, and Vet Benefits

Even with low tuition, funding your education can be complicated at times. Red Rocks Community College will help you navigate the process and find opportunities that will save you money.

1. Federal and State Financial Aid

Commonly referred to as the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is your first step. Find out if you are eligible for valuable grants, student loans and work-study jobs. Never assume that you won’t qualify! Fill out the form and get informed about your real options. To get started, go to financial aid.

2. Scholarships

Scholarships are a great way to fund your education. RRCC has a multitude of scholarship opportunity for students. More and more are made available every day, and they don’t have to be paid back! You can apply for need-based scholarships, which take into account your financial needs, and/or merit-based scholarships that are awarded for academic and personal achievement. RRCC offers several scholarships in both categories. Take a look at the scholarships we have available. But don’t stop there! Visit FastWeb for access to thousands of national awards.

3. Payment Plan

Paying your tuition just got easier with RRCC’s Payment Plan. It breaks your expenses into monthly payments, and if you plan ahead, you can pay for a semester’s expenses over five or six months. Set up your payment plan here.

The fee to set up a payment plan is $35.00, but if your plan is not set up by the due date for your class(es), you are responsible for a $40.00 late fee and $10.00 every month after that you have a past due balance or have not set up a payment.

4. Veterans’ Benefits

Financial benefits are available for veterans. Please contact Veteran Services for more details.
