The Online Master's in MIS admissions team looks forward to working with you throughout the application process.
MISonline programs have frequent, flexible start dates to fit into your schedule. We offer a rolling admission policy that gives you the flexibility to apply throughout the year.
Completed applications are due three to four weeks before the start of any course. Only completed applications will be reviewed—these have ALL required documents including official transcripts and letters of recommendation.

* Probationary option to start the program available for those who do not have a 3.0 GPA. See below.
Don't have a 3.0 GPA? No problem - we have a solution for that.
The 3.0 GPA is a University of Arizona requirement for all graduate programs.
However, students could still start any of our online graduate programs by applying as a “non-degree seeking” student.
Non-degree seeking students take either 2 or 4 MISonline classes first.
If they achieve a 3.0 GPA or higher from those non-degree seeking classes, students can then apply to the the program as a “degree seeking” student. Any classes taken as a non-degree student transfer into the degree program.
|Master's in MIS Online Program||Non-degree seeking courses needed|
|Master's in MIS or Master's in Cybersecurity||2-4 courses for a maximum of 12 credits|
|Business Intelligence and Analytics certificate
Enterprise Security certificate
|2 courses for a total of 6 credits|

VERY IMPORTANT - BEFORE you submit a non-degree seeking application – please notify Natalie Mora, Online Master's in MIS admissions coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 520-413-5544 of your intentions.
We do not receive notifications of student’s admittance status from non-degree seeking applications. Therefore we have no idea who the students are and cannot inform them of how to register for classes or help them in any way.
Once students have submitted their non-degree seeking application, received notification from the Graduate College that they have been admitted into the University, and notified Natalie of their admittance she will put you on her student lists and send your course reminders.
Again, please notify Natalie Mora at email@example.com or 520-413-5544 of your admittance.
