A great education at an even better value. That's Iowa.

We understand the cost of pursuing a graduate degree can pose significant financial challenges for students and their families. That's why funding is available through multiple avenues at the University of Iowa. Assistantships, loans, and student employment are all possibilities students can explore when estimating their total cost of attendance.

Funding and cost of attendance vary from department to department, and program to program. For a complete understanding of what your financial options are at Iowa, find your intended degree program for an accurate assessment of estimated costs and funding.
