Graduate Financial Aid
International Graduate Assistantships (IGA)
These assistantships waive the out-of-state fees, and are awarded to new incoming students on the basis of demonstrated academic ability, evidence of extracurricular involvement and financial need. International Graduate Assistants are required to work 10 hours per week while school is in session. To be considered for the IGA, applicants must have on file a completed application for admission and completed IGA application by the stated deadline. Applications for the International Graduate Assistantship are included in the International Student Graduate Application for Admission form.
Graduate Assistantships (GA)
Graduate students may apply for regular graduate assistantships through their academic program. Awards can vary by department. Generally graduate assistants are not charged tuition, but must pay fees (including a health insurance fee) of approximately $900 per semester. GAs are required to work between 10 to 20 hours per week and receive a monthly stipend. More information is available at the graduate assistantship page.
