Stipend and Scholarship

The compensation for full-time Graduate Assistants who teach two 3-hour courses per semester or whose assignment involves 20 hours per week is $3,750 per semester or $7,500 for two semesters. The compensation for Graduate Assistants with a partial assignment is reduced proportionately.

The assistantship also includes a scholarship.  For a 20 hour per week assistantship, the scholarship covers up to $2800 (+$2450 for non-residents) of graduate coursework per semester.  If the assistantship is three-fourths time, half-time, or quarter time, the scholarship is reduced accordingly. Fees for courses taken for undergraduate credit, non-credit, or pass/fail will not be included in the scholarship and are the responsibility of the student.

Please be advised that federal financial aid regulations require that the total dollar value of your tuition scholarship be included in your 'package' of federal financial aid (Perkins Loan, Stafford Loan, etc.). If this action results in you being overawarded, a reduction in your loan proceeds may be necessary.
