Financial Aid

The psychology department does not offer general financial aid.  However, once a student is admitted to the psychology graduate program, they are automatically funded as either a Research Assistant or a Teaching Assistant, or are funded on a Fellowship.  Departmental support is normally available for up to five years.  Assistantships come with a stipend, a full waiver of tuition (both in-state and out-of-state) as well as individual health insurance through Campus Health Services.  Students are responsible for paying the remaining miscellaneous fees.

In recognition of the demands on parents of newborns or newly adopted children, continuing Graduate Assistants anticipating the arrival of a new baby or child may apply for a paid Graduate College Parental Leave for up to twelve weeks of new parenthood.
