Financial Aid & Assistantships
We offer competitive masters-level graduate assistantships to newly enrolled students each year. Typically, these assistantships are awarded only for one year (usually during the first year of study). Assistantships are awarded based on a variety of student qualifications. All assistantships include some tuition, a stipend, and health insurance. Students work on both teaching support and research activities as a component of their assistantship. Students should carefully consider their qualifications for other forms of financial assistance that will help with costs not covered by the assistantship.
Information related to assistantships can be found here:
