Funding and Program Costs
The department offers a few 9-month assistantships each year. The number of positions available depend on the number of funded students who are graduating. The assistantship pays the tuition of the funded student plus a monthly stipend in exchange for 20 hours of work responsibility.
Graduate assistantship positions are awarded and managed by the department you are enrolled. These positions may involve teaching, research, or administrative support. To qualify, students must be admitted into the Graduate School and accepted into a degree program.
Our assistantships are competitive. Therefore, applicants must put forth full effort when applying and turn in materials promptly after being admitted into the graduate school.
