Tuition and Financial Awards
Completing an MSIS degree is a worthwhile investment that helps broaden your future career prospects.
Increasing technological advancements (and the growing availability of data) requires information systems managers to navigate an increasingly dynamic market. Earning a Baylor MSIS degree empowers students to develop the skills needed to analyze raw data, successfully influence decision-making and turn valuable insights into competitive advantages. Historically, more than 70% of graduates secure positions – with an average starting salary of $84,167 – within 90 days of graduation.
We understand that the decision to financially embark on your graduate journey and invest in your future is often the hardest, which is why we provide the majority of students some type of financial support.

About 75% of accepted Baylor MSIS applicants are offered financial aid in various forms tailored to meet student needs, such as tuition scholarships, graduate assistantships, grants, loans and work-study positions.
Awarded scholarships range from 25-100% tuition remission. Scholarships are determined by a variety of factors, including work experience, GMAT/GRE score, and academic record.
Candidates do not need to fill out a separate application to be awarded a scholarship. Students will be notified by the Business School of any awarded scholarships at the same time as the admission decision notification. Priority is granted to early applications.
There are Graduate Assistant (GA) positions available to MSIS students. As of the 2020-2021 academic year, GA students work an average of 10 hours per week for a specific faculty or staff member in the Business School. Once your application is approved, you will be able to indicate if you are interested in becoming a GA. Positions are granted on a first come, first served basis and are based on the availability of open positions.
Grants, Loans, Student Employment
Other forms of financial aid are also available to students. Once your application is approved, students may be eligible to apply for additional financial aid. Student Financial Services helps work with students to determine grant, loan and work-study eligibility. Student employment opportunities can be found on the Student Employment website
