Delivery Fee

Most online courses require you to pay a delivery fee. The amount may vary, and the fee for each course is listed in the online Schedule of Classes.

Records Fee

The Records and Documents fee will be assessed upon entry to the university for all new undergraduate, graduate, and professional students including new direct from high school, transfer, and reentry students. This fee will replace the transcript fee, schedule change fee, and application for graduation fee.

Degree seeking students will be assessed $130. Non-degree seeking students will be assessed $50. Students will only be charged this fee once in their lifetime, with the exception of students who move from non-degree to degree seeking. Additional Information about the Records Fee.

Optional Activity, Services, Building & Recreation Fee

This fee allows you to purchase tickets to certain Iowa State cultural and athletic events at student prices and use recreational and other services on campus. Students exclusively enrolled in distance education courses (sections beginning with X) may elect to pay this fee; however, this fee is mandatory for students enrolled in any on-campus courses. For more information on the activity and services fee please visit the Office of Registrar’s Tuition and Fees page.

Payment Information

Iowa State University does not send paper bills for tuition and fees. Instead, an e-mail notification will be sent to your university e-mail address when your U-Bill is available online in AccessPlus.

If your employer needs a bill for your tuition, you may use AccessPlus after your registration is accepted. Under Account/Ubill, complete the Account Info Release option for the third party statement.
