Support Packages


Tuition & Fee Waivers, Stipends

During the regular academic year (Fall and Spring semesters), all GTAs receive tuition waivers for up to 9 credits,  computer-lab fee waivers and 75% of their graduate student insurance paid for. All supported students are required to maintain a minimum of 9 credits of enrollment during each of those semesters. (See “Enrollment Requirements.”)

GRAs receive tuition waivers for the period the faculty advisor has support for them.  All supported students are required to maintain a minimum of 9 credits of enrollment during each of those semesters. (See “Enrollment Requirements.”)

Workload

The graduate workload consists of a total of three academic year assignments (courses or their equivalents) over the fall and spring semesters. Each course (or equivalent appointment) counts for approximately 10 hours per week. Thus, a student may carry an unbalanced load of 1-2 or 2-1 assignments, but the total workload is expected to average out to 20 hours per week over the course of the term. Administrative assignments continue over Fall and Spring Semesters.
