Tuition and Financial Aid

Your MSADA is a smart investment in your future

Our graduates are in demand. With an employment rate of over 95% within 60 days of graduation, the one-year Master of Science in Accounting with Data and Analytics is a sound investment in your future success.

You may qualify for our financial assistance options but no separate application is necessary—all applicants are considered for merit-based financial awards.

More than half of students admitted to the MSADA program have received merit-based financial awards from the Kelley School's Graduate Accounting Programs (GAP). Graduate assistantships (GAs), including teaching assistantships and GAP fellowships, can make your MSADA investment even stronger.

For example, a competitive student admitted to the MSADA program saw her tuition reduced by 20%. How?

  • She was awarded a 5-hour GA valued at $7,827 for non-resident students (GA rates change on a yearly basis)
  • She worked with GAP advising to secure a scholarship from the American Institute of CPAs

Merit-based graduate assistantships (GA) are awarded as 5-hour or 12-hour appointments. If awarded, you'll work 5 or 12 hours a week for a Kelley School department, a faculty member, or as a teaching assistant. TA positions (instructor of record) are 12 hours a week. Positions vary each year.

GA amounts are based on your residency status as determined by Indiana University (see chart below). Fee remission is the amount deducted from the cost of tuition after accepting a GA position. The stipend is paid as an hourly wage.

Once admitted to the MSADA program, students 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 your first semester bursar bill. The deposit is nonrefundable. If admission is revoked because admission conditions cannot be met, the enrollment deposit will be refunded.
