If it is discovered that a student has overpaid, a refund will be issued to the student via Bank Mobile. If it is discovered that a student has underpaid, the student or responsible party will be billed. All balances are due immediately. If a student has reason to believe they are owed a refund by RPCC, the student should inform the Business Office. In the event a refund is warranted, RPCC will issue a refund in accordance with RPCC policy.
