Benefits of a PhD Graduate Assistantship


The standard PhD assistantship provides payment of a basic stipend in nine installments over the academic year (September through May).   PhD students who receive a full stipend are expected to work an average of 20 hours per week for the stipend.  Summer augmentation is also available through the Office of Academic Affairs for students that have successfully passed both comp exams, have formed a committee, and have turned in the necessary paperwork.

A full PhD assistantship covers tuition, mandatory fees, and health insurance for the calendar year.  The assistantship will cover up to 12 credits per semester.

Domestic students may refuse university insurance.  International students, however, are required to have student medical insurance. Questions on student medical insurance should be directed to the Student Medical Insurance Office.

 

Benefits of an MS Graduate Assistantship


The standard MS assistantship provides payment of a half stipend to the student, payable in installments over the academic year (September through May).   Graduate students who receive an MS stipend are expected to work an average of 10 hours per week for the stipend. 

MS graduate assistantships cover half of the tuition, fees, and health insurance.

Domestic students may refuse university insurance.  International students, however, are required to have Student Medical Insurance. Questions on student medical insurance should be directed to the Student Medical Insurance Office.
