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 semesterly or annually based on the student's satisfactory progress in the program and performance of GA duties. All admitted students to the IT PhD program will be automatically considered for an assistantship, and no further application is necessary.
Several graduate scholarships are available to Ph.D. students through the Office of Graduate Studies. View more information.
