Assistantships & Finances

The School of Graduate Studies has a commitment to financially support our students.

We offer several types of assistance including graduate assistantships, financial aid loans, grants and scholarships to support their educational goals.

Graduate Assistantship

While graduate assistantships are a way to fund your education, they also connect you with faculty, professionals in your field and other students.

They allow you to immerse yourself in projects relevant to your degrees and enhance your intellectual and professional development.

Graduate assistantships are highly competitive and not guaranteed. You should think about and treat your assistantship search as a job search.

A student must be enrolled full-time (8 graduate credits/6 doctoral credits) to be eligible and to receive a stipend and tuition remission.
