Cost of Attendance

The University of Iowa Office of Student Financial Aid (UI OSFA) establishes a standard estimated cost of attendance which is used to determine your financial need. Costs that are billed directly by the University and other estimated costs are included. The estimated cost of attendance figures reflect modest but adequate expenses and are based on research conducted by the UI OSFA. While actual expenses of individual students will vary based on personal lifestyle choices, the estimated cost should assist you in planning your own budget.

Incoming undergraduate students may use Net Price Calculator to obtain an estimate of their cost of attendance and financial aid for which they may qualify.
