The University of Iowa tuition and fees are approved by the Board of Regents and published by the Office of the Registrar. 

Students should consult the Registrar Tuition & Fee Tables to view rates for their primary program of study.  Tuition and fees are based on:

  • Student Program of study
  • Total semester hours of enrollment

Distance and Online Education Program Tuition

Students admitted to Distance and Online Education Programs with a distance/online Learning Center are assessed tuition based on their residency, program of study and semester hours of enrollment.  Students are only assessed the mandatory technology fee and are not assessed the full suite of on-campus fees.  Students in distance programs are limited to registering in 4 s.h. of on-campus courses.

**Exceptions: Some courses (Public Health off-campus; MBA for Professionals & Managers; workshop enrollments; Lakeside Lab enrollments; or CIMBA; DCE Special Programs) do not assess tuition based on Tuition & Fee tables, but charge on a per course basis.  This will be noted in the course description in MyUI. See Academic Fees to view fee rates for those programs.
