Hey all,

I applied to and was accepted into Dakota State Universities MSIA program, I received my acceptance letter today. Pretty excited to begin after reading the positive reviews it has gotten on this forum and others. The program looks to be very interesting and cover a variety of topics. Is anyone currently enrolled in this program? I'll be beginning in the fall, hoping to knock out my PMP on May 18th and have some time off until beginning the MSIA.

    BOOOOOOO! You're suppose to be at PSU with me, jerk!

    Joking, congrats!

    Sorry Khaos, I really was considering PSU but decided to go with DSU since their program is a M.S. rather than a MPS and I wasn't sure how that would be perceived, despite the fact that PSU has a great reputation! Plus I just keep hearing great things about DSU's program. Best of luck on applying for the DSc program Gess. The cost for the graduate program for online students is $431.25 per credit hour, as far as a timeline I believe for fulltime students it is 2 years however I will take slightly longer because I only plan to take one class per semester, so 3 courses a year, at least initially to get a feel for the workload. I am in no rush since I just graduated with my MBA in March and I want to maintain a good work/life balance now.

    Definitely keep us updated! I'm very interested in this program and debating on going there.

    I talked with a rep from there and they said it was a little under $13,000 for the whole program. Not too bad.

    Best of luck!
