Pay Your Hawkeye Bill

You will receive your tuition and fee invoice in the mail. Payment or arrangements to pay must be made by the due date stated on the invoice. See Paying for College for more information.

If you have not already done so, file your 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. Awarded financial aid can help pay your Hawkeye bill and potentially assist with some living expenses.

Get Your Textbooks and Course Materials

Upon registration you will be automatically enrolled in the Bookstore's Box of Books program.

Through the Box of Books 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. With the Box of Books program, students are charged a flat fee per credit hour and on average save 35% – 50% on the cost of textbooks and course materials each term.

If you determine the Box of Books program is more expensive for you, you can choose to opt out of the Box of Books program and purchase your textbooks and course materials individually.
