Graduate Assistantships and Scholarships

Merit-based scholarships and graduate teaching assistantships are available for each academic year. Assistantships provide a stipend for teaching and/or performance duties assigned by the School and include a tuition remission for both in-state and out-of-state tuition (excluding fees). Please note that out-of-state tuition is paid for the first year of the position; GTAs are expected to obtain resident status after one year. All graduate teaching assistantships are for the academic year and are renewable for a second year.

The deadline to apply for financial aid is Nov. 15 for spring semester, and Feb. 15 for fall semester.
