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 by the established financial aid deadlines.
