Tuition Adjustment Deadlines

Adjustment Notes

  • Tuition and fee assessment deadlines are independent from academic deadlines and financial aid deadlines.
  • Enrollment in multiple terms (e.g. summer sessions, first-half or second-half semester courses) may impact tuition adjustments. Adjustments for courses with different session dates are calculated based upon individual session deadlines. Contact the Scheduling and Fees Office at 515-294-2331 or by emailing schedfees@iastate.edu for more information.
  • Contact the Scheduling and Fees Office at 515-294-2331 or by emailing schedfees@iastate.edu for more information about tuition adjustment information for course dates that differ from those listed below.
  • Withdrawing during a term may affect your financial aid. See Financial Aid for more information.


Definitions

  • Cancellation - When a student drops ALL courses before the first day of the term.
  • Withdrawal - When a student drops ALL classes on or after the first day of the term.
  • Full-time - Undergraduate students need 11.5 or more credits to be full-time; graduate students need 8.5 or more credits to be full-time. For summer terms, contact the Verifications Office at 515-294-1840 to determine if you are a full time student.
  • Reduction in credits - When a student drops one or more courses, but retains at least one credit.
