To be considered for a graduate assistantship, you are strongly encouraged to submit your application by January 1. We begin screening applications in mid-January, so please get your application started before mid-January. Note that not all materials need be received by the due date, but an application must be started to be considered. We do not offer spring or summer admissions.
Students holding a full-time TA or RA position (20 hours per week) are automatically enrolled in the university's subsidized health insurance program. The student has to pay 25% of the total premium. Students with a full tuition waiver (part of a full-time TA or RA) are responsible for paying additional charges per credit hour and a semester fee. The university has apayment planthat allows these fees to be paid over the course of the semester. All full-time students are expected to register for at least 9 credit hours per fall/spring semester and 6 per summer semester.
