Undergraduate Cost for 2019-2020

View our Understanding Your Cost of Attendance web page for an explanation on the components used to determine the estimated cost of attendance and what costs will and will not be billed to the student on a U-Bill.

The following estimated costs are for undergraduate students who are first enrolling at the University of Iowa in Fall 2019 and are based on full-time enrollment (12 or more hours per semester) for the nine-month academic year.

The tuition rates provided are from the 2018-2019 academic year. The Iowa Board of Regents has not yet approved rates for the 2019-2020 academic year. Students will be notified by email if there are any necessary financial aid award revisions once the 2019-2020 rates are approved.

Students who are returning to the University of Iowa should subtract $225 (Records and Documents Fee) from the Tuition & Fees amount.
