Registering for Classes

Guest Student Registration

If you do not plan to enroll in a program of study at Hawkeye, but would like to take classes to enhance your skills or transfer to another school, you may register for up to 11 credits hours in the Fall or Spring semester or up to 10 credits in the Summer semester as a guest student at Hawkeye.

Step 1

Plan

  1. Visit with your advisor at your current college or university to be sure the courses you'd like to take at Hawkeye will transfer.

  2. Search My Hawkeye for your courses and note the six digit course number.

  3. If a course has a prerequisite we require you to provide proof that you have met the prerequisite.

    Guest students are held to the same prerequisite requirements as degree-seeking Hawkeye students.

    Some courses are reserved for Hawkeye students enrolled in a specific program of study.

Step 2

Register for Classes

  1. Call Student Records and Registration at 319-296-2460 or stop by the office.

  2. We will need the following information:

    • course(s) in which you would like to register. Please have the six digit course number available.

    • legal full name (first, middle, last)

    • address

    • phone number

    • personal email address

    • social security number

    • date of birth

    • gender

    • the high school or center where you completed a high school completion program and your graduation date

    • previous colleges you have attended and the dates of attendance

    • ethnicity

    • race

    • residency - are you an Iowa resident

    • your educational goal

    • proof you have completed any required prerequisites

Once you are registered we will send you an email within 48 business hours to your personal email address. This email will provide instructions on how to activate your My Hawkeye account as well as other important information about Hawkeye.

Step 3

Payment

Each credit for which you register, your Student Account at Hawkeye will be charged the current tuition and fee rate.

Guest Students are not eligible for financial aid at Hawkeye, but can set up a payment plan or pay in full.

Non-payment or non-attendance does not withdraw you from your course(s). You are responsible for payment for each course for which you register.

View Hawkeye's tuition refund policy.

Step 4

Buy Books

Visit the Hawkeye Bookstore to:

  • look up the textbooks you will need for each of your classes.

  • buy used and new textbooks in-store or online.

Step 5

Attend Your Classes

It is very important for you to attend class beginning the first day.

Non-attendance and non-payment does not withdraw you from your course(s).

If your plans change and you no longer wish to take the course(s) for which you have registered, you must officially withdraw from the course to avoid being charged.
