Admission

Requisites

The requisite courses to the MSIS Core Course are designed to give students a strong foundation in business and technology covering most of the topics that are required for an undergraduate degree in information systems.  Please contact the program office at msis@indiana.edu to find out more about these courses.

The application review process includes an evaluation of transcripts to identify requisite courses that have been completed. Admitted students will be notified in their admission letter about the results of this evaluation. If requisite courses are still needed, an applicant has several options for completion:

Applicants currently in undergraduate programs: Applicants who have yet to complete their undergraduate degree, with careful planning, may be able to complete requisite courses at their undergraduate institution. If this is somewhere other than Indiana University, contact the MSIS Program at MSIS [at] indiana [dot] edu in advance of registering for the course to ensure it will fulfill the requisite.

Applicants residing in the United States who have earned bachelor’s degrees: Applicants who are currently residing in the United States (regardless of citizenship) can take requisites at a local college or university. If this is somewhere other than Indiana University, contact the MSIS program in advance of registering for the course to ensure it will fulfill the requisite.

Applicants residing outside of the United States who have earned bachelor’s degrees: Applicants currently residing outside of the US must complete requisite courses through Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.  Requisite courses are offered in both an online and in-residence component.  The in-residence component is hosted at the Kelley School of Business.  Requisite courses are offered once a year beginning in May.  Further details regarding registration and payment for these courses will be sent to you at the end of March.

Students that reside outside of Indiana should contact Stephanie Gray, Associate Director, Student Relations at stjgray [at] indiana [dot] edu for further details regarding how to successfully complete your requisite needs.

NOTE: We advise current IU students to meet with the MSIS program to discuss the most appropriate options for completing the requisite courses prior to enrolling in Independent Study Program courses.
