There are funding opportunities available to a limited number of qualified, full-time graduate students. In general, provisional students (those accepted without the required pre-requisite coursework) and part-time students are not eligible for assistantships. A student receiving an assistantship or stipend must maintain a 3.0 GPA. Funding and assistantships are typically available for the initial fall and spring semester of the program.
All full-time, first year graduate students are considered for all available departmental funding opportunities. No application is necessary. Funding awards are merit based and selected from the degree candidates on the basis of undergraduate and graduate cumulative grade point averages, GPA in major, GRE scores, and training experience and interests.
