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.

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.
