Student Funding Support:
We offer Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) and Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) positions, which provide a stipend allowance as well as a tuition waiver.
Upon review of the admissions application, applicants are automatically considered for a GRA position. If an applicant is not immediately offered a GRA position, they should contact the professor of interest directly to inquire about the possibility of doing research in their laboratory. We recommend that a student take a course with the instructor of interest before asking about a position in their lab.
Most of our GTA positions require students to do a teaching apprenticeship first. Students should contact the graduate coordinator as early as possible to find a teaching apprenticeship. We do have a limited number of GTA positions that do not require an apprenticeship. Students interested in these positions should apply early. More information about how to attain a GTA position is provided at the graduate orientation session at the beginning of the semester.
Graduate assistantships only cover tuition and provide a small allowance for living expenses. Students are required to pay student fees, have health insurance and cover other living expenses.
