Questions about the enrollment deposit
The UI requires a $100 enrollment deposit to secure your space in the incoming class and make all necessary plans for your arrival so we can officially welcome you to the Vandal family.
The enrollment deposit allows the University to plan for class offerings and student resources in preparation for your arrival. Additionally, you will receive updated information about registering for classes, on-campus housing, New Student Orientation and other opportunities offered at UI.
The enrollment deposit is required for all new domestic first-year and transfer students who are planning to enroll at UI in the fall and spring semesters. Qualified waivers may be requested by those who have a government-sponsored or other scholarship that will cover all expenses for tuition, fees, books, etc.
We recognize that there are students for whom the enrollment deposit may present a financial hardship. Generally, if you are eligible for Pell Grants or other federally-funded programs (TRIO, Upward Bound, Talent Search, etc.) or you are a first-year student who qualified for free/reduced lunches while in high school, you may request an enrollment deposit waiver. If approved, the enrollment deposit waiver will allow you to confirm your space in the Vandal incoming class. You can submit your waiver online or by mail.
The enrollment deposit is not a new fee—the $100 will be applied to your UI student account once class fees have been applied and may be used toward tuition, room, board or other charges.
You are encouraged to submit your deposit before May 1 for the entering fall semester, and before December 15 for the spring semester. The University will accept deposits after these dates, but deposits will be processed on an individual, space-available basis.
The enrollment deposit is non-refundable.
