Paying Your Bill

The Business Office at CR is responsible for billing charges to your student account, such as tuition, fees, and housing/meal plans (if applicable). If the bill is greater than the amount of financial aid that is applied to your account, you must pay the difference. There are several ways to pay your bill.

Please be aware of any Drop for Non-Payment dates to avoid being dropped from classes due to an unpaid balance. You may want to consider setting up a payment plan if you are expecting a financial aid disbursement after the Drop for Non-Payment date(s).


Payment Methods

Click on the sections below to review the different payment methods.


Students may apply for a California Community College Promise Grant (formerly known as the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver), which can waive the majority of the registration fees. If a student is awarded a California Community College Promise Grant (formerly known as the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver) prior to registration, then the portion of fees that are covered by the California Community College Promise Grant (formerly known as the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver) will be waived at the time of registration, leaving only the uncovered portion to be paid by the student. If a student is awarded a California Community College Promise Grant (formerly known as the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver) after they register for classes, it can take up to a week for the waiver to apply to the student account.

If you owe money to the college (dorm fees, tuition, health or activity fees, etc.) all funds will be applied to that debt first. The remaining balance, if any, will be disbursed to you as a financial aid refund.
