Assistantships & Financial Aid

  • As a graduate student, you will assume greater financial responsibility for your graduate degree than you may have for your undergraduate degree.

    Graduate students must be admitted to a graduate degree program to be considered for graduate-level funding. Awards are based on full-time enrollment in graduate-level courses (not undergraduate). Full time for graduate students is 8 credits; half time is 6 credits.

  • Financial Aid

  • We are committed to providing you the best financial aid package possible for your graduate program. If you need assistance completing your financial aid application, please contact the Office of Scholarship and Financial Aid.

  • Graduate Assistantships

  • A graduate assistantship provides real-world experience working with faculty in your academic discipline while helping to meet your college expenses. An assistantship will strengthen your academic experience and develop your professional skills. Depending on your program and area of interest, an assistantship may include scholarly research, program administration or student support services.
