Cancel Registration

Canceling Your Registration

Canceling your registration means you are dropping ALL your courses before the first day of the term. Other deadlines apply for some courses such as second half term courses.

If you have registered and will not attend classes, you must CANCEL your registration at least one day prior to the first meeting date of your earliest course to avoid tuition assessment. Your course meeting dates are listed on your AccessPlus class schedule.

The tuition adjustment schedule lists the last day to cancel registration to receive 100% tuition & fee adjustment for standard sessions. NOTE: Contact the Office of the Registrar Tuition and Fees Area for cancel dates for non-standard Summer Sessions.

You must notify Iowa State University of your intent to cancel your registration. To process a cancellation, download the form in pdf format and follow the instructions on the form; go to 10 Enrollment Services Center; or email; or fax signed form to 515-294-2034.
