Your first two verifications ordered are free. After that, there is a $2.00 fee per verification. Scroll below for additional enrollment verification information. 

Option 1: Internet/Web

You may order enrollment verifications on WebA​dvisor

  • Allows you to place orders for enrollment verification without having to mail in a request. Eliminates the hassle of going to the admission's office and waiting in line.
  • Supports payment by credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express). 
  • Allows you to check your verification request status on WebAdvisor
  • Lets you enter your order any time, day or night. 

Web requests can only process verifications as far back as 2004. For verifications prior to 2004, you must request via mail or in person. 

Option 2: Mail

You may request your enrollment verification by downloading: Enrollment Verification Form (PDF) and mailing it to the college.

Enrollment Fees & Payment Deadlines
​​

RCCD strongly encourages students to check their Student Account balance in WebAdvisor. Students that have an outstanding balance of $500 or more, will not be able to register for Fall 2022 classes. Please be advised, any outstanding debt over $100.00 will be submitted to the Chancellor's Office Tax Offset Program (COTOP). They have the ability through the Franchise Tax Board to seize any tax refunds, lottery winnings, or unclaimed property that might be owed to the student.​

​​​All students will be charged for registered classes and may receive a failing grade unless they drop themselves within deadlines. It is the student's responsibility to verify that all classes have been added or dropped accordingly.

For help with fees and expenses, all students are encouraged to apply for financial aid.

If you decide not to attend class and are not dropped from the class, you will receive an “F” and owe fees. It is your responsibility to drop yourself from classes that you decide not to attend.​​​

To change status, students must complete the Supplemental Residency Questionnaire Form and submit it along with supporting documentation to the Admissions & Records office; incomplete forms will not be accepted. This form must be completed in advance of the term you wish to be considered for resident tuition purposes. 

Supporting documentation consists of three proofs of residency demonstrating physical presence and intent. Two items must be dated at least one year and one day prior to the start of the term for which you are applying for. These items must not be older than two years prior to the start of the term. The third item must show that the student is currently a resident of California.

  • California Driver's License 
  • A resident California Tax Form (540) 
  • California Vehicle Registration 
  • Rental/Lease agreement 
  • Bank Statement

The Extra-Curricular Activities and Honors Coursework Record is available for students to have their participation in college clubs and/or district organizations, student government, service to the community on behalf of a club, publications, scholarships, and awards acknowledged and mailed with their transcripts. The form also serves as a record for Honors Coursework taken at Norco College.

Students that wish to include this information must fill out the Extra-Curricular Activities and Honors Coursework form (available below and in the Student Activities office), take it to each advisor for signatures, and bring it to a campus student service official for clubs and activities for final approval BEFORE transcript order is placed.

For Honors coursework, an academic service official's signature is required. For scholarships, please obtain the signature from the District Dean of Student Financial Services.

Please keep in mind that only one form is mailed out. If students turn in an Extra-Curricular Activities and Honor Coursework Record form and then stay at Norco College longer and turn in another form, the 2nd form must have all of the 1st form's information on it, including signatures. Only the current form will be mailed. It is important to keep this form neat, grammatically correct, and preferably typed.
