Financial Aid and Assistantships

Most graduate students receive financial aid in the form of 40-percent-time assistantships.

All students on assistantship receive out-of-state tuition waivers and in-state fee reductions. Reduced in-state tuition and incidental fees amount to approximately $1,100 per semester. Visit the bursar’s page for additional information on these fees.

In addition, all graduate students with graduate assistantships are required to enroll in a mandatory health insurance that is partially subsidized by the university. View additional information on health insurance on the University Health Center web page.
