Notes: There are 18 units included in each semester. Activities and Transportation fees are waived for distance MSIT. Eight semesters of expenses are displayed since that is the length to completion when taking 18 units each semester (enough semesters for a student taking 18 units/semester to complete MSIT and still be eligible for federal aid.)

If the MSIT-Distance track student is not using on-campus proctoring, the student will need to pay the third party online proctoring exam fee charged by the third party provider (estimated cost is $10/ hour, but varies by location).
