Tuition & Financial Aid
The tuition for courses in all of the IAT certificate programs is the same tuition rate for all other undergraduate MSU courses. The current tuition information and cost calculator can be found at the Tuition and Fees page on the MSU website. Some courses may have additional expenses for supplies, labs, and/or field trips.
Since IAT Certificate programs can be completed within two years, the overall financial investment is less and the overall time commitment is less. Graduates will be on their way to employment in a shorter time frame than students pursuing a bachelors degree. IAT students are eligible for scholarships and should contact their program coordinator/advisor about financial aid opportunities.
