Step 4: Pay Tuition and Fees


Paying your tuition and fees is the final step in the enrollment process.

There are many options when it comes to paying for college, including self-pay, financial aid, scholarships, payment plan, and more.

Please check your Online Student Center at for information on balance due and payment due dates. Rio Salado does not mail out tuition invoices; however, if you would like to view or print a copy, it is available through your Student Center. If you do not pay the balance of your tuition and fees by your due date, you risk being dropped from your classes.Online Student Center
