The Business Services office assists students who have questions with their semester charges and posts payments to the student accounts. All balances are due at the beginning of the semester. Outstanding balances can be set up on a payment plan located in the student portal, “RiverGuide”. 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.

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 established, the lower the down payment and more time to make additional payments, which will reduce the amount of your monthly payment.
Student Housing Payment Information
Students must have ¼ of their dorm fee paid before receiving their room key. Failure to secure payment via financial aid (scholarships, loans, pell grants, etc.) or by setting up a payment plan, could result in losing your room assignment. Payment plans must be established or the account paid in full before move-in day. Payment plans are available before the semester start date. The payment plan requires a percentage down payment with monthly draft dates throughout the semester that easily meet your financial needs.
Failure to pay your balance
Balances are due at the beginning of the semester. Statements are released monthly to the student's PRCC Email addresses. 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. If you are a housing student and have not paid your bill in full or established a payment plan by move-in day, you could lose your housing assignment for the semester. Payment plans are available before the semester start date for your convenience.
Students who have a credit on their account from refundable sources such as pell grant, 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. Students who have direct deposit information in our system will receive their funds earlier than those receiving checks.
