Please read this information concerning your Rhodes College bill.
All students scheduled to be enrolled for the Fall 2023 semester are billed prior to the semester the full-time tuition rate of $27,041. If the student will not be returning to Rhodes for the Fall semester, please contact Student Life at 901-843-3815. If the student is enrolled in under 12 credit hours the part-time tuition rate is $2,315/credit hour. Keep in mind that part-time students may not qualify for financial aid.
Room and Board
If a different meal plan from the one listed on the Spring Room & Board line on the bill is desired, resident students may change their board plan choice for the fall semester by logging into rhodes.erezlife.com with their regular Rhodes credentials and choosing “change meal plan for Fall 2023” in the middle of the screen. Commuting students may add a commuter meal plan by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a question about housing, please call the Residence Life Office at 901-843-3241.
Students may charge their Bookstore purchases to their Bookstore house account. At the end of each month, the total amount charged to the Bookstore house account during the previous month will be added to the student′s tuition account. Bills will be sent out periodically during the semester that include those purchases and any miscellaneous charges. (parking tickets, lost fobs, keys etc.)
If credit is not shown on the bill for the student′s scholarships, grants, loans, etc., it is normally due to one or both of the following reasons:
The student has not accepted their financial aid award. All students must accept their award on LynxPartner before credit for those items appears on the bill.
Documentation is not complete. If there are any outstanding document requirements for financial aid (which may be viewed on LynxPartner), credit for financial aid funding may not be shown on the bill.
Otherwise, anticipated credits are reflected on the bill, even though Rhodes will normally not receive the actual disbursements until classes begin. (Note: Even though the bill payment due date is August 9, it is not a problem that the loan disbursements are not received until after that date.) Keep in mind that the lender will withhold between 1% and 2% of federal direct student loans and between 4% and 5% of Parent (PLUS) loans as origination fees when the disbursements are made, and this expected net disbursement amount is reflected on the bill.
Outside Scholarships and Payment
If the student is receiving a scholarship from an entity outside the College that does not yet appear as a credit on the bill or a payment is expected from a state prepayment program, you may deduct the amount you expect the College to receive from these sources for the semester from your payment. You do not need to provide an explanation for the deduction. If the total amount that outside sources will pay is expected to equal or exceed the total amount due on the bill, a payment is not required, and it is not necessary to provide an explanation to Rhodes.
Monthly Payment Plan
Rhodes provides a monthly payment plan thru Nelnet that allows the bill for each semester to be paid in 5 installments as an alternative to paying the semester in full on the August and November due dates. The fall semester payments are due the 5th of each month from August thru December, and the spring semester payments are due the 5th of each month from January thru May. The only additional amount charged for paying the bill via a monthly payment plan is a $47 enrollment fee per semester, which is payable with the first installment each semester. A link for setting up a monthly payment plan will be included on the billing e-mail message for each semester.
If you are mailing a check, please make your check payable to Rhodes College, write the Student ID number on the check, and mail the check to the following payment address: Rhodes College, ATTN: Rhodes Express, 2000 North Parkway, Memphis, TN 38112.
Students from outside the United States may make payments using FlyWire.
