Student Funding

Student Funding

Our college has a variety of fellowships and assistantships specifically for new incoming students which typically fund 70-90% of our new students. All new applicants are automatically considered for first year college funding. On average, the pay for master's students is $21,000 and $23,000 for PhD students annually (fall, spring, summer). Fellowships and Assistantships normally include a tuition waiver or payment (covering approximately 80-100% of your total tuition expenses) and subsidized health insurance premiums.
