Paying for MS CIT Courses

Financial Assistance

There are a number of financial assistance options to help defray the costs of enrolling in a graduate professional program.  These include Stafford loans, graduate PLUS loans, military programs, and loans from private lenders.  Through myPurdue, you can monitor your financial aid funding and make sure the proper payments are made in a timely fashion. 

Installment Plans

If you're enrolling in the fall or spring, you can sign up for a payment plan to avoid making one large payment each semester. The remaining fees will be paid in three equal amounts over the course of the semester. For Summer Session, Module 1 requires 34% at the time of enrollment, and Module 2 requires 50% at the time of enrollment.

Third-Party Payment

If your employer or a tuition assistance program is covering the costs for you, we'll invoice them directly after the last official drop day for students.  The third party will also need to send a voucher or written approval, on letterhead, to the Purdue University Bursar, Attn: Heather Holley or fax to (765) 494-6988.  The approval must include:

  • Full name of the student and his/her Purdue University ID (PUID) number

  • Company name and billing address
  • Amount of fees being covered
  • Any restrictions or conditions on what payment will cover
