Welcome to the Student Financial Services Office of Rochester College. Our office provides various services to our students some of which include: financial aid processing, issuing monthly statements, and maintaining student accounts. We are located in the Muirhead Center on the West End of the campus. Our office hours are
Monday – Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm.
All students must complete registration by processing through Student Financial Services. A Pre-Billing statement will be furnished to the student showing charges and pending financial aid for the upcoming semester.
Charges remaining after pending financial aid may be paid as soon as a student registers, but must be paid by the payment deadline (two days prior to the first day of the semester). Students may elect to pay charges in full or participate in the Semester Payment Plan.
If the student pays all charges due or establishes a Semester Payment Plan and makes the initial payment, the student will be considered Officially Registered.

Phone bills are posted to students accounts at the end of each month. The phone bills should be paid by the 15th of the month to avoid interruption of service. Students who have a credit balance on their account may offset the telephone bill with their credit balance. Only credit balances from paid financial aid may be used to offset a telephone bill. Credit balances resulting from pending financial aid are not considered. You may access a detailed copy of your phone bill by logging onto the RC WarriorNet website.

Students who will receive employer assistance may defer payment up to 5 weeks after the last day of the semester. The student must complete their employer’s tuition assistance process so that timely payment is made on their account and submit to the Business Office, documentation from their employer of their eligibility. We must have documentation on file for students who have deferred payment and would like to register for a subsequent semester.
If an employer has a policy to pay the college directly, this is referred to as a Tuition Voucher plan. Rochester College requires that the student submit vouchers (or a copy of the application for a tuition voucher) to the Business Office with registration. Documentation must be on file with student financial services in order to be eligible to register for subsequent semesters as long as there is an outstanding balance.
Payment for all textbooks purchased through the online Bookstore must be made at the time of purchase. The online bookstore accepts credit or debit cards. Normally, bookstore purchases cannot be charged to a student’s account.
The Student Financial Service Office, at the beginning of each month, will send out email reminders to students letting them know they can view their current billing statement by logging on to their student portal and clicking “My billing/ledger”. The statements will itemize charges and credits to their account and will show the total balance due. If they are using the Semester Payment Plan, the payment schedule will not be shown on the statement. Students must note the dates when the installments are due, as shown above.
