The tuition account is the responsibility of the student. If the student has a credit balance, the refund is provided to the student, not the person who paid the account. A credit balance that occurs because of an overage of a Federal Parent Plus loan will be refunded according to the parent’s instructions.

For assistance, you may contact the Business Office at 515-263-2807.

Tuition Refunds
Financial Aid refunds are issued beginning Wednesday of the 2nd week of each term and thereafter are issued weekly within 7 days, but no later than 14 days, from the date the credit balance was created. All refund checks will be mailed immediately upon issue to the student’s primary address, or deposited into a bank account specified by the student.
Room and Board Refunds
  • Written notification of a contract termination must be received by June 15 for returning students and July 1 for new students for fall semester and by November 15 for the spring semester.
  • Housing deposits will be forfeited for all contracts terminated beyond this deadline.
  • Room charges are not refundable after classes begin the first day of the academic year.
