Paying for a Master's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies
The IU Southeast Master of Interdisciplinary Studies (MIS) program is committed to delivering the best graduate education value in the region.
Your IU Southeast graduate degree will cost less than it would at a competitor school with options for tuition reciprocity, financial aid, and scholarships, and department specific aid.
Students from Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Meade, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties in Kentucky are eligible for in-state tuition at IU Southeast.
The Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) enables residents of Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, and Wisconsin who are admitted as nonresident students to enroll at IU Southeast at a reduced cost. This program became effective in the Spring 2017 semester.
You might also be eligible for tuition reimbursement through your employer. Your employer will have to become authorized as your sponsor through IU Southeast Student Central.
Graduate students are eligible for student loans. Keep the following in mind when applying:
- A degree-seeking graduate student must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year to apply for Stafford Loans.
- Graduate students must also enroll in at least four credit hours to be eligible for Stafford Loans.
- Graduate students are also eligible for federal unsubsidized student loans (up to $138,500) if they complete the FAFSA and are enrolled at the minimum part-time status.
- FAFSA deadline is June 30th.
Post-baccalaureate students are not eligible for financial aid but may become eligible by enrolling in a degree-seeking program.
