Financial Aid and Funding


Financial support may be available for both Masters and Ph.D. students. Such support generally takes the form of teaching assistant appointments, research assistant appointments, and fellowships. These appointments include a regular stipend, waiver of all or part of tuition and fees, and a health insurance benefits package.

The number of appointments fluctuates annually with the availability of funding and enrollment. Although we do not guarantee financial aid to students, we do prioritize support for current students who are meeting expectations on progress toward their degree and for new student applications received by December 15.

Tuition costs and additional fees are outlined on the Finances page on OneStop.


Applicants are typically notified of their financial support decision by mid-February. Completed applications received by December 15 are considered first and may improve your likelihood for receiving financial assistance. Applications received after December 15 may be placed on a waiting list.
