The Office of Student Financial Aid recognizes that parents are an integral part of the financial aid process. Parents of University of Iowa students are key partners in the financing of their student’s education. You can help your student take on new financial responsibilities while they are pursuing their college degree.
You will find information and links to pages within the Office of Student Financial Aid website that will provide you with essential information concerning financial aid.
Your student's U-Bill is their monthly bill from the University of Iowa. Please keep in mind that only your student can grant access to his/her academic information, including their U-Bill. The University recognizes that many students receive significant financial support from their parents during their academic career. However, due to federal privacy regulations, we are prohibited from sharing financial information with parents without student consent.
If you would like to access this information, please ask your student to create an MyUI guest account for you, so that you may view their U-Bill online.
Visit the University Billing Office to view information for parents on common billing and financial questions.
Some students choose to establish themselves as an Iowan for tuition purposes which has cost saving benefits. For more information and answers to the most commonly asked questions about resident classification, visit the Office of the Registrar's residency page.
