Financial arrangements are made after formal acceptance into the Graduate School. Assistantships and fellowships are available on a competitive basis and awarded to students for demonstrated scholastic ability. The amount and duration of assistance is dependent upon satisfactory progress throughout the graduate program and the availability of funds. Most assistantships are funded through grants of individual faculty; therefore, the research area of study must contribute to the objectives of the grant. Students on assistantships have in-state status, and tuition is provided as part of their assistantship. Students are responsible for their comprehensive fees.

For more financial assistance information, contact the Office of University Scholarships and Financial Aid.
