The $330 acceptance fee is specific to the term for which you accept your offer of admission. Students who delay their entry term no more than one year are typically not assessed the fee a second time. However, these students are still held to the refund deadline for their original entry term.
Your $330 acceptance fee is applied as follows:
- $195 is applied toward the New Student Programs fee (Orientation and Destination Iowa State programs)
- $135 is an advance payment on your university bill
If you contract for university residence halls or apartments, your $135 advance payment will be used to make your $135 housing prepayment. If you cancel your housing contract and/or your admission, your $330 acceptance fee may be partially refundable, depending upon the date by which the Office of Admissions or the Department of Residence receives your notice of cancellation.
Students who wish to withdraw their admission and receive a partial refund of their admissions acceptance fee based on the deadlines listed below, must initiate their own withdrawal by completing the application change form.
