Costs & Financial Aid
The investment you make in your graduate studies is an investment in your future success—and by choosing the MSIS degree program; you gain a competitive advantage in the job market.
To calculate your expected costs in a given semester, use the Tuition Estimator Tool found on the IU Office of the Bursar website.
Admits to Information Systems Graduate Programs master’s degrees are required to pay an enrollment deposit to secure their seat in the entering class. This deposit is non-refundable. However, if ISGP revokes their admission because of the candidate’s inability to meet admission conditions, the enrollment deposit is refunded.
Merit-based Graduate Assistantships (GA) are awarded as 5-hour or 12-hour GA positions. With a merit-based assistantship, a student is expected to work 5 hours (per week) or 12 hours (per week) for a department or faculty member in the Kelley School.
- Approximately 25 percent of our departmental aid is awarded as 12-hour assistantships and 75 percent as 5-hour assistantships.
- All admitted students are considered for GA positions. There is no separate application. If awarded a GA, you will receive notification via email.
- Amounts of the award are based upon your tuition residency status as determined by Indiana University.
- GAs are paid partially as a tuition waiver and partially as a monthly stipend for work completed each week.
A limited number of merit-based fellowships are awarded to entering students as departmental aid.
- All admitted students are considered for fellowships. There is no separate application. If awarded a fellowship, you will receive notification through email.
