Financial assistance is available to students through a limited number of doctoral research assistantships. Assistantships are a form of graduate employment that does not carry a tuition waiver. Those individuals receiving doctoral assistantships work with faculty on research projects of mutual interest. The Doctoral Program requires that a student be registered for a minimum of 6 semester hours to qualify for a research assistantship. All doctoral students are expected to register for a minimum of 6 credit hours each semester.
Assistantships are available on a competitive basis. For additional information contact the Director of the Doctoral Program.
For financial aid purposes, the University requires that a student enroll in 9 semester hours to be considered "full-time". For information about financial aid eligibility requirements and other forms of financial assistance, contact the Office of Financial Aid.
