Steps to make your Housing Deposit
- Sign in to MyRIC with any browser EXCEPT Safari, as we are not compatible with Safari.
- On the left hand sidebar, under Campus Finances, choose “Make a Payment”.
- Three payment options will be displayed and there will be another link to “Make a Payment/ View your bill”. Select that option.
- The Student Account Online screen will display. Your ‘Current Balance $0’ should be at the top left of the screen. Below that select “Click here to make a payment”. You should be able to select the Housing Deposit option there. Newly accepted students may need to select the Enrollment Deposit option as well, if they have not already made that deposit.
