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.

For information about financial aid, particularly externally funded awards, please visit the Office of Student Financial Assistance.
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.
There are multiple ways we make the program affordable, including:
Assistantships are awarded as 5-hour or 12-hour graduate assistantships based on merit.
- Approximately 25 percent of our total available funds are awarded as 12-hour assistantships and 75 percent as 5-hour assistantships.
- Assistantships are paid partially as a tuition waiver and partially as a monthly stipend for working each week. Kelley graduate assistantship covers only a portion of your tuition costs.
- Amounts of the award are based on your tuition residency status as determined by Indiana University. Please read the Rules Determining Resident and Nonresident Student Status for Indiana University Fee Purposes.
- No separate application is needed to be considered for a graduate assistantship.

- Awards to outstanding students are made on a merit basis.
- The amount of the award and the number of awards vary each year.
- Awards and fellowships cover only a portion of the tuition costs.
