Funding Your Degree

Whether you are applying for the first time or returning to school to earn a degree after an education hiatus, how to fund your degree is a fundamental question.

Student loans are available. Check out this site for information.

University-wide, there are opportunities to apply for funding. Here are a few useful links:

Financial packages from the program you apply for are possible, but they are highly competitive and they are only offered to full-time students. 


  • If you are applying for financial support, in the form of a tuition waiver or teaching/research assistantship from your program of interest, you need to apply by February 1st in the year in which you plan to start the program, starting in the Fall semester.
