Get help managing your requirements
Meeting the requirements for a dual degree is quite achievable, especially with the help of your dedicated ILS faculty advisor, who will be assigned to you as soon as you’re admitted into the program.
Your advisor will help you build your course schedule each semester to ensure that your requirements are being met, and that your courses match your evolving academic and professional interests.
Prospective students can indicate their plan to pursue a dual degree in their application. Upon admission to both programs, please fill out the Dual Degree Declaration Form (found in the Current Student Canvas page or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org) in order to get your dual degree approved. After gathering the appropriate signatures, send the form along with your admission letter to the dual program to email@example.com.
Estimate your tuition and fees
IU’s tuiton and fees tool allows you to forecast the cost of credit hours and mandatory fees for your ILS graduate education.
To be considered full time, you must enroll in at least nine credit hours. Anything less is considered part time, which is an option for all students. You can also choose to enroll in more than nine credits if it better suits your goals.
Credit hour fees are different in every school. To get the best estimate of how much your tuition will cost each semester, search tuition rates for both of your dual-degree programs.Use the tuition and fees tool
