Tuition Rate Approval

Most tuition rates do not require approval by the Iowa Department of Education, but must comply with 281 – IAC 21.2(11). However, certain tuition rates (reciprocal, consortia, or other) do require approval from the department. The following will govern department approval of reciprocal, consortia, and other tuition rates:

Reciprocal agreements: approved by the Iowa Department of Education;

Consortia: rate is not less than the lowest resident rate or higher than the highest nonresident rate of institutions within the consortium;

Other: rate is greater than the resident tuition rate and not less than the marginal cost of instruction.
