Guest Student Registration

If you do not plan to enroll in a program of study at Hawkeye, but would like to take classes to enhance your skills or transfer to another school, you may register as a guest student at Hawkeye.

Step 1: Plan

  1. Visit with your advisor at your current college or university to be sure the courses you'd like to take at Hawkeye will transfer.

  2. Look through the list of general education transfer courses offered at Hawkeye.

  3. Search for Courses and Course Sections and note the six digit course number.

  4. If a course has a prerequisite we require you to provide proof that you have met the prerequisite.

    • Guest students are held to the same prerequisite requirements as degree-seeking Hawkeye students.
    • Some courses are reserved for Hawkeye students enrolled in a specific program of study.

Step 2: Register for Classes

  1. If this is the first time you've registered for classes at Hawkeye, complete the Guest Student Intent to Register.

    You will receive an email from the Registrar's Office once your Intent to Register has been processed. Please allow up to two business days for processing.

  2. Email the Registrar's Office and we will get back to you to register for classes. See the Registration Calendar for dates when class schedules are available and registration begins.

All new registrations must be completed by the end of the business day on the Friday before the term begins.

Once you are registered we will send you an email within 48 business hours to your personal email address. This email will provide instructions on how to activate your My Hawkeye account as well as other important information about Hawkeye.

Important Registration Notes

Each credit for which you register, your Student Account will be charged the current tuition and fee rate.

It is very important for you to attend class beginning the first day.

Non-attendance and non-payment does not withdraw you from your course(s). If you no longer wish to take the course(s) for which you have registered, you must officially withdraw from the course to avoid being charged.

You must attend class to receive your financial aid award and disbursement from your college/university. If you are reported as not attending, the course credit hours cannot be included in your financial aid award package. The lesser number of credits may reduce the amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive and your award package will be adjusted accordingly.
