The Business Services office assists students who have questions about their semester charges and posts payments to the student accounts. All balances are due approximately 90 days after the start of the semester. Balances for the fall semester are due October 31st, spring balances are due March 31st, and summer balances are due July 31st. We have many options available to help students with their balance, and we are more than happy to provide you with options for paying your bill. Outstanding balances can be set up on a payment plan located in the student portal, “RiverGuide”. This allows students to spread their balance across monthly payments throughout the semester. We are available to answer any questions you may have concerning your statement and assist you in having a successful experience at Pearl River Community College.

How to Find My Bill
Nelnet payment plans are available in River Guide by choosing the Payment Plan Icon. These plans are interest-free and allow you to make a down payment and set up reoccurring payments throughout the remaining semester.
The earlier a payment plan is set up, the lower the down payment and more time to make additional payments, which will reduce the amount of your monthly payment.

Failure to pay your balance
Balances for the fall semester are due October 31st, spring balances are due March 31st, and summer balances are due July 31st. Statements are released monthly to the student’s PRCC Email addresses or can be viewed online in RiverGuide. The college offers scholarships and financial aid to assist with the cost of college. Students have to complete their FASFA and apply for scholarships. Payment plans are available in RiverGuide to assist students with an interest-free payment option. Take advantage of these opportunities and review your statement frequently for updates to the account. Failure to pay your balance will result in a hold on your account, inability to enroll in future terms, and inability to receive a transcript and your degree.
Students who have a credit on their account from refundable sources such as pell grants, loans, or refundable scholarships will have access to these funds during the early part of the semester to use in the bookstore and on campus. Refunds are released the seventh week of school by direct deposit or check. After the seventh week of school, refunds are processed once a week on Thursdays. Students who have direct deposit information in our system will receive their funds earlier than those receiving checks.
