Graduate Aid & Assistantships

To find out what financial aid might be available to you, contact the Financial, Billing and Enrollment Center.

Many graduate programs offer one of three types of graduate assistantships – administrative, teaching or research.

Most assistantships are awarded to doctoral students, and some programs fund 100% of their graduate students while others do not. These competitive awards typically provide compensation in the form of a full tuition waiver in addition to a monthly stipend for 10-20 hours of work per week. Students should first inquire through their academic program regarding the availability of assistantships; however, other available assistantships and campus jobs are posted through Career Exploration and Development. You must be a fully admitted student to gain access to Handshake to search for positions.
