Adding & Dropping Classes

Need to make adjustments to your class schedule? Before you add or drop a class, make sure you understand all of the rules and important deadlines—such changes can alter your tuition balance, academic progress, and more.

  • Run your Degree Audit in MyHub. Make sure each course you added counts toward your program so you continue toward graduation and receive all of your eligible financial aid. 
  • We have many student support services available to help you achieve educational success. Visit Student Services for additional information.
  • If you have questions about your class or program requirements, please contact your academic advisor.  Find their information in MyHub by clicking "Support" and then “Advising”.

If you have questions about your tuition or financial aid, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 319-398-7600 or


Adding a course may have created a balance on your account. Please log in to MyHub to view your adjusted tuition amount.

Dropping a course may affect the following areas. If you have questions about these impacts, please contact the appropriate office. 

  • Dropping a class may result in a tuition refund depending on when you drop. View refund dates. If you drop a class after its refund date, you still owe tuition.
  • This drop may result in a ‘W’ grade on your transcript.  A ‘W’ grade does not affect your semester or cumulative grade point average, but may affect your completion rate (pace) for financial aid eligibility.
  • If you are using financial aid and withdraw from all of your courses, you may be required to pay back a portion of your financial aid.  You will be notified if this results in a balance on your account.
  • If you dropped a course in error, you must notify Enrollment Services within one business day to be re-enrolled. 

Please contact Enrollment Services if you are considering dropping all of your classes or have questions about the financial impact of your drop.
