Cost of Earning a Masters in Information Systems

Financing Options for Your MSIS Degree Tuition

The decision to earn your Information System’s Master’s (MSIS) degree is not one to be taken lightly. For many, the sacrifice in terms of time and money can often be a large barrier when seeking an advanced degree. Marist offers a host of financing options to help working adults who wish to accelerate their careers in technology with an MSIS degree.

The Marist MSIS degree program is a high-quality, technology and business-focused program centered on furthering the education of those looking to excel in the world of corporate technology.

MSIS Graduate Degree Cost and Tuition

Tuition for MSIS degree graduate students is the same whether you choose to attend classes at our Poughkeepsie, New York campus, or through our online program. Marist determines the tuition and fees for the MSIS degree program on a per credit basis. As of the 2013-2014 school year, the estimated program cost for 30 credit hours is just over $26,000 (subject to change).

Now that you know the cost to attend our program, let’s look at ways to finance your education. Financial aid is available in many forms, and our Office of Student Financial Services will do their best to help you. To apply for financial aid, all students must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is the official application for need-based financial aid. Once this is complete, we can determine the level of financial aid you will receive.

Beyond the FAFSA, Marist offers several other types of financial aid. Our scholarships come in the form of Marist Scholarships for merit and alumni, and Specialty Scholarships Opportunities for students who qualify. We are also proud to offer academic partnerships with select corporations and organizations to help defray tuition costs. MSIS degree program graduate students can also receive select grants and loans to help fund their education.

Marist recommends that all MSIS degree program graduate students file all financial aid forms before being accepted into the program. We also recommend that all graduate students file for any financial aid or scholarships they feel they may be eligible for. You’d be surprised at how much money is left unclaimed by students who feel they may not qualify.

If you’re interested in earning a highly sought after degree from a nationally recognized program, all at an affordable price, the Marist MSIS degree program is the right program for you. Call today to speak with a counselor about getting your financing in order.
