Financial Aid

Two types of financial aid are available to students: teaching and research assistantships. These assistantships typically include stipends, in-state tuition remission, health insurance and other employee benefits. Teaching assistantships can involve classroom, Psychoeducational Clinic, and Department of Psychology Advising Office assignments. Research assistantship assignments are variable and are based upon faculty member’s sponsored project.

Currently, the department pays $14,000 for the academic year for a half-time (20 hours per week) appointment as a teaching assistant. Most other assistantships pay at or above this level. Other forms of financial assistance are available through the Office of Financial Aid, including scholarships, grants, loans, and campus employment. For more information, see the links below.
