Financing your degree 

All successfully admitted applicants are automatically considered for any available assistantships.  Financial support for qualified graduate students is available mainly in the form of research and teaching assistantships. The University of Wyoming waives all tuition and fees (except special fees) for all assistantships. A limited number of fellowships are available to highly qualified candidates.

All assistantships require course work and research activities that are usually coincident with the MS thesis or PhD dissertation topic. Students obtaining support are obligated to perform research which will help meet the obligations of the principal investigator to the funding source.
