Graduate Studies

Financial Aid
Most students take advantage of loans to help fund their education. A number of private, state, and federal student loan programs are available. To learn more, contact the University's Financial Aid Office, located in Bayley Hall, at (800) 222-7183.

Graduate Assistantships
Graduate Assistantships are available to both U.S. and international students. The University makes available a limited number of these teaching, research and administrative assistantships each year to full time, matriculated graduate students.

Assistantships are competitive and granted for one academic year. These positions may be renewable for an additional year, based on the recommendation of the hiring department. An assistantship includes tuition remission for a maximum of 12 credits per semester and a monthly stipend. Graduate Assistants generally spend 20 hours per week doing directed professional or research work in a University department.

Students may apply for a graduate assistantship once admitted to a graduate degree program. Applications and information on the graduate assistantship program are available here. It is helpful to contact departments directly if you feel you have a talent or professional experience that directly applies to a particular department.
