Assistantship, Tuition Assistance, Health Insurance

Description  
Assistantships The program strives to offer paid assistantships to all interested students, but due to variability of funding opportunities, we cannot guarantee we will be able to do so.  Students offered an assistantship are eligible for an assistantship up until their 4th year in the program.  Graduate assistantships may be awarded for any number of hours up to 20 hours per week during the academic year (fall and spring).  During the summer and winter breaks, graduate students may work up to 40 hours per week.  The current minimum yearly amount is $11,065.  The assistantship which includes up to 9-credits of tuition remission each fall and spring semester and health insurance.
Tuition assistance Based on the current rate of in-state tuition, the tuition remission amount for the academic year is $8,802 ($4,401/semester).
Health insurance Graduate assistantship student health insurance is provided by UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company.
