Financial Aid + Costs


Graduate assistantships provide financial assistance to students, allowing them to work closely with faculty members on specific research or teaching assignments.

  • Assistantships are funded by the College or through research grants received by the department or individual faculty.
  • The department may also nominate a limited number of highly qualified students for university-wide assistantships.
  • Assistantships are competitive and are generally awarded on a 9-month, academic year basis.
  • TMI Graduate Assistantships are generally one-third time assistantships, requiring 13 hours of work per week during each semester.

Tuition is waived for graduate students holding assistantships but some fees must be paid by the student.


Scholarships through the college are available on a competitive basis.
