Financial Assistance

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.

Learn more about Financial Assistance through the Graduate School , the College of Education site, or our own Scholarships & Grant Opportunities page

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.
