Roxbury Community College offers a monthly payment plan option with an enrollment fee of $25 per semester.  This option allows students to pay the total amount due in three payments.  The first payment of 50% is paid at the time the student enrolls in the payment plan.  The remaining two payments are scheduled to be paid the following two months.  Students who default on their payment plan will not be eligible to utilize this payment option in the future.

Students who officially withdraw from a course or from the College early in the semester will not receive a refund based on the College’s withdrawal policy and refund schedule (see refund policy below).  Failure to attend class does not constitute official withdrawal from a course or from the College and students will be charged for their enrollment.   

To officially withdraw from a course, students must complete a Withdrawal Form (available at the Advising Center), which requires the approval and signature of an academic advisor.  This form must then be submitted to the Enrollment Center and the Business Office for final processing.  Be sure to contact the Financial Aid Office as it is possible a withdrawal will impact your financial aid award.   

Refund Policy: 

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

Students may adjust their course schedule during the add/drop period without penalty.  The published beginning and end dates of the add/drop period for each semester can be found on the Academic Calendar.  

Students dropping or withdrawing from classes must complete the appropriate form in the Advising Center.  Failure to officially withdraw results in an ‘F’ grade and full financial responsibility for the cost of the course.  Application and registration fees are non-refundable. 

To remain in compliance with federal regulations, RCC must release student refunds created by Title IV financial aid within 14 days of disbursement.  Refund checks are automatically generated and will be mailed to the student’s billing address.  Returned or uncashed refund checks will be voided and the funds will be sent back to the Department of Education. 

Please note: lack of attendance or course abandonment does not constitute a drop or withdrawal.

Withdrawal during the add/drop period  100% of tuition and applicable fees  All courses will be deleted from the transcript 
Withdrawal after the add/drop period  No refund  Withdrawal (W) will appear on the transcript 

Tuition Waivers: 

Waivers include, but are not limited to, National Guard Members, Veterans, Senior Citizens, Native Americans, State Employees, and Wards of the State. 

Students with approved tuition waivers, tuition remission, or tuition vouchers may register on a space-available basis and pay all associated fees at the time of registration.  Tuition waivers, tuition remission, or tuition vouchers do not apply to special programs, seminars, or private instruction administered by the Center for Workforce Development.  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). 

To receive a tuition waiver, students must present their waiver at the time of registration but no later than the first day of class.  Waivers will not be accepted after classes begin and the student will be held responsible for the cost of the term.  The Commonwealth of Massachusetts does not fund all courses; therefore, the use of certain waivers for those unsubsidized courses will be restricted.

We are happy to serve our Veterans. Please visit the Veteran Services page for more information on applying, the GI Bill and required Certificate of Eligibility. 

Please visit for more information concerning the Post 9/11 GI Bill.  Please contact the Registrar's Office for further information and a Veteran’s package.  If you are a current member of the Massachusetts National Guard, visit for instructions on how to receive your waiver.

Please note: all veterans must complete the admissions process and provide proof of high school diploma or GED.
