Tuition with Graduate Assistantship
A limited number of graduate assistantships are available for selected students. Graduate assistants work between 10 and 20 hours per week and earn between $775 and $1,550 a month. Students on assistantships receive reduced rates for tuition and out-of-state fees are waived. Other mandatory fees and international student fees are not waived, however, nor do assistantships cover differential costs for specialized classes.  For example, tuition for a U.S. Resident with a 15-hour/week assistantship totals approximately $5,110 (see table below).  The cost for an International student with a 15-hour assistantship, including all fees, is approximately $7,140.

If you are interested in applying for a graduate assistantship please indicate in your cover letter to the Graduate Director (Howard Goldbaum) and on your graduate application.
