Tuition for the online Master of Science in Information Technology Management is a flat fee of $850 per credit ($31,450, total for 37 credits) whether you live in Wisconsin or out of state.
There are no additional course or program fees. As this is an online program, you will pay no segregated fees—fees in addition to tuition that cover the costs of student-organized activities, facility maintenance, and operations such as student health centers. However, textbooks (and software, if needed) are purchased separately and are not included in tuition.
Financial aid may be available to you and is awarded by your home campus (see below for an explanation of “home” campus). Please check with your home campus regarding minimum credits required to qualify for financial aid as a full- or part-time student. Contact your home campus financial aid office for details:
- UW-La Crosse Financial Aid
- UW-Oshkosh Financial Aid
- UW-Parkside Financial Aid
- UW-Stevens Point Financial Aid
- UW-Superior Financial Aid
To apply for federal and state financial aid, fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Even if you haven’t made a final decision about whether or not you will apply for this program, you may want to consider completing a FAFSA. Completing this form is always the first step when applying for federal or state financial aid.
Sources of Financial Aid
You may consider the following sources of financial aid to help with the cost of your online degree:
- Federal grants—awarded based on financial need. Grants do not need to be repaid.
- Federal student loans—typically offered at low interest rates, however, loans must be repaid.
- Private education loans—available in addition to federal grants and loans. Private loans must be repaid.
- Tuition reimbursement—a benefit offered by companies to their employees. Check with your human resources department to find out if your company offers this benefit.
- Scholarships—awarded based on academic achievement or other criteria; financial need is sometimes taken into account. Scholarships do not need to be repaid.
- Military benefits—available to eligible veterans, their spouses, their children, and current members of the military.
- Education tax benefits—talk with your financial advisor about possible tax benefits.
What is a “home” campus?
The UW Master of Science in Information Technology Management is a partnership of UW Extended Campus and five University of Wisconsin campuses: UW-La Crosse, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Parkside, UW-UW-Stevens Point, and UW-Superior.
Although you will take courses taught by faculty from all five partner campuses, you will apply to a “home” campus. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid (if you qualify), advising, career services, and your diploma. This is an online program, but your degree and transcripts will be identical to those earned by on-campus students.
Enrollment advisers are available Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CT, or by appointment.
