Graduate Assistantships and other Financial Aid Options

A limited number of graduate assistantships are offered by each department to assist students. These assistantships, which can involve classroom teaching or other options, are awarded on a competitive basis to full-time students who are in good academic standing. These assistantships typically entail responsibilities in return for a tuition-waiver scholarship and monthly stipend.

Additional funding options can be found through the Graduate Student Grants & Fellowship Office which has access to over 500 private and public funding sources.
