Our graduates are in demand. With a 95 percent employment rate (within 90 days of graduation), the MSA program is a sound investment in your future success.
There are options available to help pay for your MSA education, including graduate assistantships, American Institute of CPAs scholarships, military benefits, and federal loan options.
To calculate an estimate of your expected costs in a given semester, use the Tuition Estimator Tool found on the IU Office of the Bursar website. Tuition is subject to change every academic year. MSA students must take a minimum of 30 credit hours to graduate.
Learn more about determining resident and nonresident student status on the University Policies website.
MSA admits are required to pay an enrollment deposit of $500 to secure a place in the entering class. Upon enrollment, the deposit will be deducted from the student’s first semester bursar bill. The deposit is nonrefundable. If admission is revoked because of the candidate’s inability to meet admission conditions, the enrollment deposit will be refunded.
Merit-based graduate assistantships are awarded as 5-hour or 12-hour graduate assistant (GA) positions. Students work 5 or 12 hours a week for a Kelley School department or faculty member.
All admitted students are considered for GA positions—there is no separate application.
If awarded an assistantship, you will receive notification via email. MSA students are most often awarded 5-hour assistantships. Award amounts are based upon your tuition residency status as determined by Indiana University. GAs are paid partially as a tuition waiver and partially as hourly employees for work completed each week.
