Research Assistantships

Research assistantships may be available each year under which the student is appointed to work between 12 and 15 hours per week helping individual faculty with research responsibilities. Assistantships are awarded on the basis of the applicant's academic background. Research assistantships include the payment of up to 9 credit hours of tuition fees per semester, plus an hourly wage. Continuing students often remain in an assistantship position from the previous year.
