Fees and Tuition

Costs Tailored to Your Journey: Unveiling Program-Specific Fees for 2023-2024

At Iowa State University, fees and tuition can be as diverse as the many academic pathways available to students. Whether you’re into underwater basket weaving or quantum physics, there’s a specific fee waiting for you. Tuition and fees are decided by the Iowa Board of Regents, State of Iowa, but are subject to change. As you ponder the vast expanse of academic endeavors, remember that fees and tuition aren’t set in stone. They can change without so much as a whisper, so stay alert!

As a student, you only pay the course, program, and incidental fees that directly relate to your chosen path, your interests, or any special needs you may have along the way. This means you won’t be billed for anything you don’t need. Isn’t that great?

If you’re curious about the big picture, you can take a peek at the total cost of attendance through the Office of Student Financial Aid. They hold the keys to the kingdom.
