Graduate assistantships include a stipend and tuition remission and are available in all graduate programs. Continuation of financial aid in the form of a graduate assistantship into the second year of enrollment is contingent upon an acceptable GPA (3.0 or better), progress on the thesis project and satisfactory performance as a teaching assistant.
