Exceptional applicants to the Ph.D. program are supported financially through graduate research and teaching assistantships. A doctoral graduate assistantship includes tuition support for 9 credit hours per semester and a monthly stipend. Most graduate assitantships are provided for the academic year only (Fall and Spring semesters). Assistantships are renewed annually or biannually based on the student's satisfactory progress in the program and performance of GA duties. To apply for a graduate assistantship, Ph.D. applicants are required to submit a completed graduate assistantship application form, available under the "Prospective Students: Deadlines and Forms" section of this Website, along with their application material.
Several graduate scholarships are available to Ph.D. students through the Office of Graduate Studies. View more information.
