Tuition scholarships

  • Traditional MS tuition (on-campus)

    Students enrolled in the traditional MS program on campus will receive scholarships in the form of graduate teaching assistantships (GTAs). A limited number of teaching assistantships are awarded each year to the most promising students. 

    GTAs carry a stipend plus full tuition scholarship. Most of the funding opportunities involve assisting professors in introductory undergraduate courses. 

    Qualified applicants can be nominated to receive a Dean's Graduate Scholarship. This award provides a partial tuition scholarship for two years. In addition, federal loan and work-study programs are available for qualified students to assist with their educational expenses. More information is available from the Office of Financial Aid.
