Financial Support

At this time, teaching, research, and service assistantships are not guaranteed due to variability of funding opportunities. The program strives to offer paid assistantships and if available will be assigned at the beginning of each Academic Year. 

Teaching assistantships may involve co-teaching a course depending on student experience. Research assistantships will be offered through funded research projects at both campuses. Students will be matched to available assistantships according to their interests and skills. 

Assistantships include a tuition remission of up to 9-credits each semester and student health insurance. 

Students are eligible for all traditional student loans and grants and are encouraged to contact the UAA Student Financial Aid Office.
