Please note that due to summer hours, all offices on campus are closed on Fridays.
The Business Office is committed to providing timely and consistent accounting services to Rio Grande students, faculty and staff.
When you register for classes, please check your student space account within 48 hours to assure accuracy. All account balances are due the week prior to the start of the semester. For any unpaid balance there is a late fee assessed each month. It is your responsibility to check your account. If there are any questions or concerns please contact the Business Office. Our hours of operation are Mon-Fri, 8 am - 5 pm. We will however be open extended hours during the first week of class to accommodate students who still need to pay outstanding balances.
You will need to check your student space account weekly for any updates or changes. Do not wait on a paper bill to pay your account. If you cannot pay in full we have a payment plan available for the current semester. Any unpaid balances at the end of each semester will be subject to collections.
Important Notice! Any student bills not paid in full by the first day of class will be assessed a late fee of 1.5%. You may make payments in person in the business office, through the mail by check, over the phone by check or credit card, or online through student space. You can also avoid this fee by signing up for our monthly installment payment plan. Forms can be obtained under the resources tab to the right.
