Paying for College

Tuition Refund for Credit Classes

Tuition refund only applies if you complete the withdrawal process to reduce your credit hours or completely withdraw from Hawkeye.

Not attending class is not considered a form of withdrawal and you will still be responsible for paying the tuition and fees for those courses.

You may appeal a refund decision by submitting a written request to the Financial Policy Waiver Committee.

Fall and Spring Semester Tuition Refund Policy

A full refund of tuition and fees will be awarded if you complete the withdrawal process:

  • within the first 14 calendar days of a 16-week semester. If you withdraw from courses 15 or more calendar days after the start of a 16-week semester, you will not receive a refund.

  • before the first day of the semester.

Courses less than 16-weeks in length will have an earlier refund deadline.

We highly recommend that you finalize your schedule during the first week of the semester.

Summer Sessions Tuition Refund Policy

You will receive a full refund of tuition and fees if you complete the withdrawal process:

  • within the first 7 calendar days of an 8-week summer session. If you withdraw from courses 8 or more calendar days after the start of an 8-week semester, you will not receive a refund.

  • before the first class meeting.

Courses less than 8-weeks in length will have an earlier refund deadline.

Tuition refund applies only to reduction in credit hours or total withdrawal.

Swapping Courses

If you want to change course sections of a course after the tuition refund deadline, you will be charged the tuition for BOTH sections. Learn more about swapping courses.
