Payment Plan Information

During the 2021-22 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 2021-22 academic year.

Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) Payment Plan

If you are unable to pay your tuition in full by the due date, RRCC is happy to offer you a monthly payment plan to assist with your budgeting needs and will help you pay your account in full by the end of the term. You must enroll in the plan at the beginning of each semester. Monthly p ayments may be made using Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, or by automatic withdrawal from a checking or savings account.

  • This payment plan can only be utilized for the CURRENT semester. It cannot be used to pay a past due balance, or a collections balance.
  • There is a $40.00 non-refundable enrollment fee per semester.
  • Payment plans that require a down payment will have those payments processed immediately.

Simple steps to enroll:

  1. Go to
  2. Log into your student account in "the Rock" portal
  3. Select the Student Account tab
  4. Under Payment Options select “Create and Manage your NBS Payment Plan”
  5. Select NBS Payment Plan
  6. Follow the instructions to get set up

 When to set up the Payment Plan:

The sooner you sign up the better! The payment plan will be open at the start of the registration period and throughout the term. Your total charges will be divided into multiple payments and the number is dependent on when you sign up for the plan. The longer you wait the larger your payments will be and a down payment will be required. 

Be sure to check your account online throughout the term to ensure your payments are correctly posted to your student account. If your financial aid is delayed for any reason, sign up for the payment plan to avoid financial holds, late fees, and potential collection action. Any amount your financial aid pays above what you owe will be refunded.

You can view your balance due, payments made, increases or decreases to your tuition and fee amounts, and other account information.    Once you have your account set up, you can access it anytime by following the same steps you used to sign up for a payment plan via the Rock. Once you’ve logged in, you can access the following tools:Important Payment Plan Information:

  • If someone will be paying tuition and fees on your behalf, you can now add an “Authorized Party” to your account.
  • If you would like to make a payment towards your tuition and fees in addition to your scheduled payment, you can do so by using the “Make a Payment” option of your NBS account. This payment will reduce your next scheduled payment by that amount.
  • If your account is NOT in good standing, a hold will be placed on your account that cannot be removed until the account is brought to current or until the balance due has been paid in full.
  • If your payment plan is terminated due to non-sufficient funds or non-payment, you may be subject to additional fees.

Payment Policy

Each term the official due date is listed in the academic calendar. Payment in full or approved alternative payment arrangements such as the payment plan, financial aid or third party sponsor (VA, company or high school) need to be in place by the official due date. 

  • If registration occurs before the full term drop date, payment is due by the full term drop date regardless of when the class starts.
  • If registration occurs after the first official due date, payment is due in full by the fifth of the following month.

Important Information

  • All accounts not paid in full by the due date are subject to late fees. Late fees are based on when you register, not when the class starts.
  • If you do not complete the payment plan you sign up for, it is your responsibility to finish paying your account in full either online or at the Cashier's Office by the last day of the term.
  • If you fail to pay your account in full, any subsequent registrations will be dropped.
  • All accounts not paid in full by the last day of the term are subject to collection action.
