Pay Your Hawkeye Bill
Your bill for tuition, fees, and books may be viewed in My Hawkeye > Self-Service Menu > Web Advisor for Students > Billing & Payment > View Account and Make Payments.
You are responsible to pay tuition and fees for registered classes whether you attend or not.
Awarded financial aid can help pay your Hawkeye bill and potentially assist with some living expenses. If you have not already done so:
File Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for many types of financial assistance including low interest loans and scholarships and grants.
Apply for Hawkeye and external scholarships.
See Paying for College: Paying Your Bill for more information on financial aid, payment options, and how to drop or withdraw from a course.
Get Your Textbooks and Course Materials
Upon registration you will be automatically enrolled in the Bookstore's Box of Books program, a convenient and cost-effective textbook rental program.
Through the Box of Books textbook rental program, the Hawkeye Bookstore does your shopping for textbooks and course materials. Your books can be picked up at the bookstore or shipped directly to your home before the first day of class.
Learn more about the Box of Books program.
Get Your Student ID and Parking Permit
Stop by the Business Office in Hawkeye Center to pick up your student ID and parking permit.
