Tuition & fees

For the 2019-2020 academic year, tuition is $2,100 per course. The rate's the same whether you're an Iowa resident or nonresident.

Tuition is reviewed annually and is subject to change.

Tuition responsibility for dropped courses

You’ll be held to at least 10% tuition responsibility for any course in which you are officially enrolled unless your drop is received before 11:59 pm the day before the official course start date listed in MyUI. Please refer to the Tuition Responsibility Schedule associated with dropping a Business Analytics course in which you are enrolled.

Not attending class does not constitute withdrawal. Failure to provide official notice of withdrawal may result in receiving a grade of F in the course. This tuition responsibility schedule is specific to this program and is distinct from the University’s Tuition Responsibility Schedule.

University fees

Effective Summer 2017, Business Analytics students pay a one-time Records and Documents fee. This replaces graduation and transcript fees, as well as other Registrar fees.

Admission type
Fee amount
Master's students $225, billed with first course enrollment
Certificate students $75, billed in second semester of enrollment

If you begin as a Certificate student and later enroll in the Master's, you'll be credited the $75 and charged the full fee.

Employer reimbursement

Many business analytics students receive reimbursement from their employers, either full or partial. In most of these cases, employers require proof that you've completed the class with a satisfactory grade before they reimburse the tuition. If this applies, you can defer your tuition payment until the semester's end.

Employer reimbursement deferred payment

To take advantage of this benefit, you need to complete the Employer Reimbursement Deferred Payment Agreement, located on the University Billing Office website.

Important information for students utilizing deferred payment:

  • There is a $35 fee for deferral that must be paid in full by the normal U-Bill due date.
  • Your employer is required to complete and sign the bottom portion of the form.
  • The form can be faxed, emailed, or sent in U.S. mail.
  • Submit the form before the first U-Bill is issued; after that, late payment fees may apply.
  • A new agreement must be submitted each academic year.
  • Your U-Bill must be paid by the due date, approximately 30 days after grades are posted in MyUI, regardless of your employer's reimbursement timing.
