Loans and Financial Assistance

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid can provide further information regarding federal loans.

A limited number of graduate assistant (GA) positions are available that would waive your out of state tuition (if applicable) and pay approximately half of your remaining tuition (in the Fall and Spring semesters only).  These positions require you to work for a faculty member 10 hours per week and also pay about $850 USD per month (in the Fall and Spring semesters only).  The dollar amount may vary some by department.

Currently, only students who qualify as regular or provisional status students qualify for federal financial aid. Commonwealth Campus students do not qualify until they become a regular degree-seeking student. For more information about this, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
