Other College Fees
*Students who do not reside in Rhode Island are subject to CCRI's residency policy. The residency policy may be obtained in the Office of Enrollment Services in Warwick, Lincoln, Newport and Providence. This policy will determine if you will be charged the inter-state tuition rate or the out-of-state tuition rate.
Paying your tuition and fees in full by the specified due date on your bill is your responsibility. Education is an investment in your future. Assuming personal responsibility for paying your tuition and fees promptly is an integral part of the educational process at CCRI.
Paid in full is defined as having made full payment by cash, check, or credit card, enrollment in CCRI's approved payment plan (TMS), an official College financial aid award (aid or loan), or an authorization for payment by a third party.
Students are responsible for dropping all courses they are not planning to attend and are responsible for payment of courses in which they are enrolled. Students should NOT assume they will be dropped from a class for non-payment, as there are many factors that will determine whether and when a student is dropped for non-payment. It is the student's responsibility to verify his or her enrollment status. To verify enrollment status, students can view their schedules on Pipeline at www.ccri.edu.
Students who do not meet their financial obligations to CCRI will be denied a variety of student services including access to grades, future enrollment, and issuance of transcripts. Delinquent accounts will be reported to national credit bureaus and could possibly damage your credit rating.
All past due semester balances must be paid by money order, certified check, or credit card. No personal checks will be accepted.
