For students not meeting residency classification, including international students, financial awards are available to cover a portion of the difference between resident and non-resident tuition. These awards are applied directly to your tuition account, and eligible students must enroll in at least 9 credit hours per semester. This award is not applicable for summer semesters when all students pay resident tuition.

Scholarship Overview A number of graduate fellowships are available each semester. Student awards are directly applied to fall and spring tuition bills in two equal payments. A limited number of graduate and teaching assistantships are available each semester. Students are paid an hourly rate for a set number of hours per week and also receive a scholarship applied directly to their tuition bill. Assistantship applications will be sent to all eligible students when available – typically 1 to 2 months before the semester start.
