Stand Out from the Crowd


The University of Wyoming offers private school benefits at a public school price you won't find anywhere else. Additionally, there is a variety of options for funding your COJO Graduate Program experience.




  • Financial support is available through departmental teaching assistantships.
    • The beginning student who has been awarded a teaching assistantship will assist the forensic director or teach two sections of one of the following topics:
      • public speaking,
      • interpersonal communication, or
      • reporting and newswriting.
    • A stipend plus a remission of tuition and fees; students are responsible for the nominal A&S computer fee.
  • International students can apply for an assistantship, but requires an exceptional command of English, including previous experience in an American English speaking environment or an English speaking education.
  • In general, graduate assistantships are awarded for one year and those students who successfully fulfill their academic and teaching responsibilities are offered a second year. The expectation is to offer support through the fourth semester.
    • A limited number of special assistantships are available University-wide for minority students, and the department strongly seeks applications from such persons.
    • The department does not limit enrollment just to those students who it can support financially.
    • Students who begin their graduate program without an assistantship, and are successful, are given priority when assistantships do become available.
