Border State Tuition Reduction
River Valley Community College is offering in-state tuition to students who are residents of Vermont and Massachusetts and live within a 50 mile radius of our Claremont, Keene or Lebanon locations. Please contact the Admissions Office to find out if your residency qualifies for the reduced tuition plan.
Fee Payments - Tuition
Tuition is due two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester. Students are encouraged to pay on-line through the use of the e-cashier link on our web site. Payment may also be made directly in the College Business Office, or by mail. A payment plan option is available and can be assessed directly through the College web site. If tuition is paid in installments, it must be paid in full 10 days prior to the beginning of final exams or two weeks prior to the end of the term, whichever is applicable. RVCC students are billed electronically (e-bill) through the Student Information System (SIS) and RVCC student email. A fee of $50 per semester will be charged to all students who fail to make arrangements to pay tuition and fees prior to the start of classes and students run the risk of being deregistered from related classes.
Academic Instruction Fee
A fee will be charged for all Laboratory/Clinic/Practicum/Co-Op/Internship or other similar experiences. This fee will be calculated by subtracting the number of lecture/class hours from the number of credit hours and multiplying the sum by $110.00 for each course. This fee will be added to the normal tuition charge for that course.
