Payment Plan Option

The College offers a payment plan option for students who may have difficulty paying for their costs in full at the beginning of each semester. The payment plan option allows a student to pay the total amount owed in three payments. The first payment of 50% is due during the registration period at the time the student elects the payment plan option. The remaining two payments are to be made during each of the following two months. Students who default on payment plans will not be permitted to use the payment plan option in the following semesters.

Payment plans may only be used for direct charges. Payment plans cannot be used to cover the cost of books and supplies. Refunds, if any, will be calculated in accordance with the refund policies of the College.

Payment Plans are available at the Business Office with a 50% deposit.

Refund Policy

Students dropping or withdrawing from classes must complete the appropriate form available in the Advising Center, Building 3, Room 424. Failure to withdraw officially results in a grade of "F" in the course and an obligation to Pay in Full. The schedule of refunds for tuition and general college fees outlined in this page applies only applies when a class has been dropped, as established by the Enrollment Services Center. Application fees and registration fees are non-refundable. Lack of attendance or course abandonment does not constitute a drop or withdrawal, and student will be responsible for the full balance.

The Refund Policy applies to tuition and fees for all students who register for one or more courses at RCC. This policy goes into effect on the first day of classes for each semester.

You may add or drop classes during the ADD/DROP period without charge. The official start and end dates of the ADD/DROP period can be found online (http://www.rcc.mass.edu/academics/academic-calendar) listed as “Last Day for Schedule Changes”.

Refund policy rules

Withdrawal during ADD/DROP period 100% tuition and fees, less $25 registration fee All courses will be deleted from the student's transcript
After the ADD/DROP period ends No refund Withdrawal (W) will appear on student's transcript

If you have any questions regarding this refund policy, please contact the Business Office.

Policy for Financial Aid Refunds

Roxbury Community College currently has multiple start dates for courses offered in both fall and spring semesters. Financial aid refunds are released via paper check as RCC does not offer a direct deposit option for students. In order to remain in compliance with federal regulations, RCC must release student refunds within 14 days of receipt of funds from the US Department of Education. Furthermore, if a financial aid refund is not received by the student within 10 business days from original generation of the financial aid refund the Business Office will mail out the checks via USPS postal service with the mailing address we currently have on file.  Any returned check will be voided and funds will be sent back to the US Department of Education.


Before a student registers for classes, outstanding balances for prior terms must be paid in full. Fall charges should be paid in full by the first day of classes. Students with financial aid should pay their portion of the bill not covered by financial aid or make a payment plan. Organizations may be billed for tuition if authorization is presented on agency letterhead to justify billing at registration. The student must pay the portion of the charges not covered by the organization prior to the first day of classes.

Due to changes in our check processing system, the following information will be required, and placed on the face of any personal checks you will be using to make a payment:

  1. Your driver's license number

We cannot accept payment in the form of a personal check if all the required documentation is not provided. 

If you are unable to pay using a personal check, we accept the following:

If you are providing a check or credit/debit card payment from another party, please provide a letter of authorization giving permission to use the check or credit/debit card and a copy of their driver's license or government issued id card.


Several kinds of tuition waivers are available to Roxbury Community College students. These waivers include, but are not limited to, members of the National Guard, veterans, senior citizens, Native Americans, state employees, and wards of the state. In order to receive a tuition waiver, you must present the waiver at the time of registration or before the first day of class. If you present the waiver after the first day of class, the College will make no adjustment.  The Commonwealth of Massachusetts does not fund all courses; therefore, the use of certain waivers for those unfunded courses will be restricted.

Students with approved tuition waivers, tuition remissions, or tuition vouchers may register on a space-available basis, and fees must be paid. Tuition waivers, tuition remission or tuition vouchers do not apply to special programs, seminars or private instruction administered by the Corporate and Community Education. Also, certain tuition waivers, which apply to the state-supported Day Division, may not apply or be reduced for Division of Continuing Education programs (credit courses).
