Students who receive an assistantship appointment may qualify to have their tuition (not most tuition differentials) and some fees waived. To be eligible, the assistantship appointment must be between 25%-67% and cover at least 91 continuous days of the fall or spring semesters (41 days for summer appointments). Please visit the Human Resources website for more information. Students also receive a monthly stipend from their hiring department that varies in amount according to the time worked. To receive an assistantship tuition waiver, eligible students must also maintain a minimum registration throughout the term of 8 credit hours for fall and spring appointments and 3 hours for summer. For more detailed information about assistantships, please see the Graduate College website.
If you will have an assistantship, you will need to report it the OSFA once you receive your financial aid award notification via your electronic award letter.
