Tuition & Fees
Online and affordable to help you meet your goals
Use the information and tools provided here to gain a better understanding of the costs associated with your enrollment.
To view tuition and fees prior to registration, access the Registrar’s Tuition and Fee tables.
- Select the semester of planned enrollment
- Select "University College"
- Select "Online" Learning Center
As a BAS/BLS student with an Online Learning Center, you will be assessed tuition at the resident rate, the mandatory technology fee based on your semester hours, and a career services based on your hours of enrollment. You will also be assessed a non-refundable Records & Documents fee of $225.00 during your first term enrolled at the University Iowa. Students with an Online Learning Center are limited to registering in 4 s.h. of on-campus (Iowa City) course work.
If you wish to register for more than 4 s.h. of on-campus course work, you will need to request that your Online Learning Center be removed. This will default you to on-campus student status, and you will be assessed tuition rates based on residency and total semester hours of enrollment, plus all mandatory student fees.
Once you are officially registered, you can view your Tuition & Fee assessment in MyUI.
Please visit the Office of the Registrar's website for more information about tuition, fees and residency, including your responsibility for tuition when you drop a course or withdraw.
There are some course enrollment costs that are not considered tuition & fees, including (but not limited to):
- The cost of textbooks
- A separate Course Fee will be assessed if the course requires specific materials or resources. Course fees are listed on the MyUI Course Detail page.
Each semester students must submit a Billing and Payment Student Agreement. This is completed in the Financial Aid & Billing section on MyUI.
Tuition, fees, and other charges are billed through the University Billing Office. Your University Bill (U-Bill) can be accessed by logging into MyUI and selecting Financial Aid header at the top of the page.
U-Bills are sent to your UI email inbox on the first day of each month. Questions? Please contact email@example.com.
The University of Iowa offers an affordable first-rate education. The Office of Student Financial Aid has a committed team of professionals who work in partnership with you, providing information on available options and assisting you with the financial aid process.

Changes in registration after the start of the semester may carry financial implications.
DROP - To terminate enrollment in one or more courses, but to remain enrolled in at least one other course.
WITHDRAW - To terminate enrollment in all courses (even if enrolled in only one course).
Not attending class or not submitting course work does not constitute a course drop or withdrawal of registration.
When you drop a course or withdraw your registration, you are responsible for knowing:
- your tuition and fees responsibility based on the date you take action
- financial implications to your financial aid
