Let's talk tuition

Tuition cost for part-time Business Analytics courses is $2,250 per course ($22,500 total for the certificate). The rate is the same for Iowa residents and nonresidents. Tuition is reviewed annually and is subject to change.


Part-time Business Analytics students pay a one-time Records and Documents fee. If you're a University of Iowa graduate, this fee will be waived.

Funding your degree

There are several options to consider for financing your Business Analytics credential.

Many of our students receive some reimbursement from their employer, either full or partial. Check with your company’s human resources department to find out if tuition assistance is available. Share the Part-time Master of Business Analytics Employer Guide with your supervisor or HR representative to start the conversation.

As a military Veteran or active-duty service member, you’re entitled to paying zero application fees. If you plan to use Veteran’s benefits, you can get help through the Office of GI Bill Services at 319-335-3895 or registrar-vets-office@uiowa.edu.

Federally subsidized loans are usually available for U.S. citizens and permanent residents. If you plan to go this route, you’ll want to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) well in advance of starting classes. See financialaid.uiowa.edu/graduate for instructions and details.

Students also have access to a growing number of private loans. Contact your bank and research your options; terms and conditions for these programs vary.

Please visit the Office of Student Financial Aid's graduate student financial aid for information about financial aid at the University of Iowa.


Up to 20 incoming students will be selected each semester to receive a scholarship of up to $2,250.

The criteria for scholarships look at a combination of merit (based on your academic record) and need (financial). 

GMAT/GRE scores aren't required, but including a score may strengthen your academic merit and opportunities for scholarships.

Applying for scholarships: timing

There's no separate application for our scholarships. Simply apply for admission as normal and you'll automatically be in the running.

Scholarships are awarded to incoming students who apply and have all of the relevant materials turned in before the priority deadline, including transcripts and (if applicable) test scores. 

Later applications may be considered if funding's available, but for the best shot at scholarships, plan to apply before the priority deadline.

Payment options and payment plans

There are several ways to pay your tuition bill, from automatic deduction to paying in installments. See all the options on the University Billing Office website.
