HOW TO PAY FOR COLLEGE
If there is an out of pocket balance after financial aid is applied, students have the option to either pay the balance in full or utilize a payment plan over the duration of the semester. Payment in full or the first month’s payment plan payment is due on or before the first day of the semester. Changes to the standard payment plan (four payments starting on the first day of the semester) must be approved by Student Accounts prior to the start of the semester. If payment or payment arrangements have not been made prior to the start of the semester, students may be administratively dropped from their course(s). Students may also check their account balance through the Student Portal.
Payment may be made by cash, check, or debit/credit card (Visa, MC, AmEx, or Discover). Scheduled payments by any payment type may be made on campus in the Student Accounts office, located in Texas 122. Check payments can be mailed to campus (1600 Pierce St, Lakewood CO 80214), and made payable to RMCAD and include the Student ID number in the memo line. Debit/credit card transactions can be made either online or over the phone.
COLLEGE PAYMENT PLANS
The RMCAD Payment Plan is designed to finance all tuition—or the portion of tuition not covered by financial assistance, such as grants, loans and scholarships—interest-free. The standard payment plan is set up over the four months of the semester to cover the tuition and fees in full or the balance not covered by other financial aid awards or scholarships. The first payment is due on or before the first day of the semester, with the remaining three payments due on the corresponding day of the month for the next three months. If the student is attending one term of a semester, the payment plan is shortened to two months. Accounts with late payments are subject to a registration hold. Payment plans are set up by Financial Aid as an option for payment on all out of pocket balances. Contact Student Accounts at 303-567-7285 for more information and to set up recurring payments.
After you have registered for a course, RMCAD will reserve a space for you in that course regardless of attendance. RMCAD reserves the right to withhold registration and letters of recommendation until all charges have been paid and your student account is cleared. Failure to pay tuition and fees may result in cancellation of future registration. Payment plans are available each semester you are registered.
The Student Accounts Office works with students to manage charges for each student, including tuition, fees, and various fines. Statements are emailed at least 14 days prior to the beginning of each semester to the student’s RMCAD email address. Any out of pocket balance from tuition charges are due and payable prior to the start of each semester.
