261C.8 PROHIBITION ON CHARGES. An eligible postsecondary institution that enrolls an eligible pupil under this chapter shall not charge that pupil for tuition, textbooks, materials, or fees directly related to the course in which the pupil is enrolled except that the pupil may be required to purchase equipment that becomes the property of the pupil. However, if the pupil fails to complete and receive credit for the course, the pupil is responsible for all costs directly related to the course as provided in section 261C.6 and shall reimburse the school district for its costs. If the pupil is under eighteen years of age, the pupil's parent, guardian, or custodian shall sign the student registration form indicating that the parent, guardian, or custodian is responsible for all costs directly related to the course, if the pupil fails to complete and receive credit for the course. If the local area education agency verifies that the pupil was unable to complete the course for reasons including but not limited to the pupil's physical incapacity, death in the family, or the pupil's move to another school district, a verification by the area education agency shall constitute a waiver to the requirement that the pupil, pupil's parent, guardian, or legal custodian pay the costs of the course to the school district.
