Hello Students!! September 26, 2014 is the date when the first round of fall refunds are to be mailed! Make sure your permanent address is current with the records department by Friday September 19!

All checks will be mailed to your permanent address on file. If you live in a dorm AND have a dorm mailbox, your refund check will be put in your dorm mailbox. Commuters will have their checks mailed to their permanent address. No pickups or early dispersals!

NOTICE!! If you have special circumstances surrounding federal loans, such as being a first time loan borrower, and/or having a single-term only loan, and/or having 2nd 7 week classes only, your refund may be released at a later date.

Important Notice Concerning Tax Forms and Student Refunds!

The tuition tax form 1098T were mailed by January 31, 2014. ECSI prepares these forms and mails them to the permanent address on file. If you would like to view your tuition information online, please contact ECSI 1-866-428-1098 to get your login information. Then visit the ECSI website at www.ECSI.net.

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 accomidate 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 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.

 

The Business Office is committed to providing timely and consistent accounting services to Rio Grande students, faculty and staff.

The University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College would like to inform you of our new student invoice policy. Beginning with the Spring Semester 2013 we will no longer be mailing student invoice bills. All University and Community College students will receive their invoice in their Rio e-mail account.
