FAILURE FOR NON-ATTENDANCE (FN) AND FAILTURE TO WITHDRAW (FW)
Instructors may assign students the grades of FN and FW.  The grade designations are for students who never attend a class and students who stop attending a class during the semester but do not officially withdraw.  These grades carry the same weight as a failing grade (F).  Withdrawals from courses where students were assigned an FN or FW cannot be made using the eServices site.  If students are assigned an FN or FW grade prior to the end of the withdraw date for a course, they can still elect to withdraw but must do so in person in Records and Registration.

eSERVICES PROXY BILL PAYER
eServices has a function which allows students to provide proxy (i.e. guest) access to most of the Bills and Payments features on the web. Designated individuals will be able to view account information (just as you would see it) and make payments on your behalf.

When logged into eServices you will be able to select an option from the Bills and Payments or the Profile web page to initiate the process for one or more people. Simply provide the name and email address of proxy bill payer(s) and the system sends the payer an email notice with instructions for activating their access. The payer must activate access within 5 days and it will remain active for 6 months. You can return at any time to add additional entries, or modify, re-activate, or revoke access to those already on your list.

To begin, select the “Give Someone Access to Pay My Bill” button from the Bills and Payments summary page. The first time you enter you will need to read and accept the terms and conditions of use. After that you just add the name and email address and select the “Send or Renew Access Request” button. That person will receive email instructions on activating their access to your account. They will have access to nearly all “Bills and Payments” functionality, but no other section of your eServices account. They will not be able to enroll in a payment plan, nor will they be able to designate anyone else to have this access. They will be able to view your class schedule through the Account Activity PDF form.

Important notes:

  1. You assume all responsibility for any potential financial aid and/or tax implications of someone making a payment on your behalf using this site. Only individuals who are either your parents or guardians should be identified as an alternate payer.
  2. Providing access to alternate payers is not a guarantee of payment. You are solely responsible for the timely payment of all outstanding balances. An unpaid balance will result in a hold that will impact your ability to register for classes and possible collection activity.

STUDENT EMERGENCY FUND
We get it – life happens. If you’re facing a financial crisis, this may be the help you’ve been looking for.

The Student Emergency Fund (SEF) assists RCTC students by providing financial support when they need assistance with unexpected emergency expenses surrounding situations such as accidents, illnesses, death of a family member, transportation issues, fire damage or need for temporary housing.

Students who are in need of emergency financial assistance should contact the Advising/ Counseling Department at (507) 285-7260 or in person at SS133.

Visit the Student Emergency Fund webpage for more information on the Emergency Fund. For additional resources, click the “Student resource information is available” link.
