If you have a strong academic background and plan to enroll as a full-time student in a degree program, you may be eligible for merit-based aid in the form of scholarships, assistantships and fellowships. The university gives more than $9 million in financial support each year. Availability of merit-based aid depends upon your intended program of interest.

Applying for Merit-Based Aid

New Students: There is no additional form to apply for merit-based aid other than your application for admission. Just check the box on the Graduate School Application Form to apply for tuition scholarships, teaching or research assistantships.

Continuing Students: Complete the Financial Aid Application for Admitted Students. This form is available from the Graduate School or online.
