Financial Support, Including Full Remission of Tuition:
Admitted students are funded via academic-year teaching assistantships (or, sometimes, research assistantships or project assistantships), which require approximately 20 hours of work per week. Teaching assistants usually lead discussion or laboratory sessions. In addition to their stipends (approximately $11,838 per academic year for a teaching assistant), all assistants receive full remission of tuition (both in-state and out-of-state tuition), as well as benefits such as health insurance. The Psychology Department is able to guarantee 3 years of assistantship funding for graduate students, but we typically fund students for far more than three years.
