    Cheaper MSIT

    Hello All,

    I recently started the MSIT from American Public University. The program is already a good deal but I was wondering if there was any way to make it cheaper through testing out classes or maybe taking courses at other cheaper schools (DETC and NA included). Although I can find plenty of ressources for undergrad credit, there isn't a lot of information available for graduate level courses.

    I would be interested in finding equivalencies for the following classes:


    INFO531 Management Information Systems 3 hours
    INFO620 Enterprise Database Systems 3 hours
    ISSC680 Information Security Management 3 hours
    ITMG624 Information Technology Project Management 3 hours
    ITMG625 IT Project Management: Integration, Scope and Time 3 hours
    ITMG626 IT Project Management: Cost and Communications 3 hours
    ITMG627 IT Project Management: HR and Procurement 3 hours
    ITMG628 IT Project Management: Quality and Risk 3 hours
    ITMG630 Project Management for e-Business 3 hours


    Any ideas are welcome...


    Thanks in advance !

    If you are willing to get an MSIS (Information Systems ) instead of an MSIT (Information Technology ), one option is Minot State University.

    The tuition 320.75 per course (NOT per credit hour), which means that the 10 course MSIS is just under $10,000.

    I was thinking you may have found one of the cheapest grad degrees around, but on the Minot State website it states: Per credit tuition and feesOn MSU Campus$318.40IVN, Online, Distance$320.75


    So 320.75 is per credit. Still a pretty good deal for a state school (I know nothing of their reputation).

    I did the math correctly, but for some reason I mistyped course and credit hour. Just reading my post, I should have picked up my mistake (10 courses at $320.75 is $3,207.50, not the $9,622.50 that I calculated).

    Either way, that has still got to be one of the cheapest tech masters that I have seen. Two of the other cheap tech masters that I know of are also in the Dakotas (DSU and NDSU). If you are really adventurous, Georgia Tech just started accepting applications for their sub $7,000 MOOC MS in Computer Science .

    This is a great time to be in the market for a distance tech masters.

    Fort Hays State University has a few degrees in IT, such as cybersecurity, Information Assurance Management, Management Information Systems , and Networking . I believe the cost is around 243 per semester hour, and you will have to buy books for each class.
