Financial Aid

Teacher Support Assistantships

A teacher support assistantship can help finance your graduate degree. Assistants work on-campus and receive a monthly stipend and a full tuition waiver. Assistantships are available through the MBA program (working with MBA faculty) and in other campus offices as well.

MBA Program - Assistantships

The MBA program assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis considering your undergraduate GPA, GMAT scores, and letters of recommendation. There are many qualified applicants and only a limited number of assistantships available. These assistants work specifically with business faculty in the College of Business and Technology.

Assistantships are considered 2/3 time (working 13 hours per week) and currently offer a stipend of $629 per month plus the tuition waiver. These are offered each semester, although generally a student is offered Fall/Spring assistantships in May for the next school year. Teacher Support Assistants can register for 9-12 semester hours of coursework. The assistantship does not waive University fees.

MBA students who complete an Application for Assistantship (available from the School of Graduate Studies) are automatically eligible for an MBA Program assistantship.
