The cost of student liability insurance, required in certain health technologies, will be included in the course fee. Students should check the information provided in the course listings in Catalog for courses with additional fees. 

Internet Course Fees/ Internet Hybrid Fee (100 and 200 Level Classes)

Payment Due

As a means of providing experience and emphasizing punctuality and responsibility in business affairs, the University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College prefer to deal directly with the student rather than their parents. Accordingly, all bills will be addressed to the student.

The payment is due one week prior to the first day of the semester. Payment must be received on or before the due day to avoid late fee. Postmarks will not be reviewed. 

If you are a participant of third party billing (e.g. BVR, CAA, TAA, VA, WIA, Jobs & Family Services or Workforce Development), it is your responsibility to provide documentation to the Business Office. You may fax appropriate documentation to the Business Office 740-245-7171 on or before the stated due day.
