Financial Aid & Financial Assistance

Different  financial support opportunities exist in each of the degree programs at the School. Each program is responsible for awarding aid.

Priority is given to U.S. citizens in evaluating financial support applications.

All international students are expected to come fully funded for their entire degree program and any advanced study they may do in a certificate program or in a second degree program. Scholarships and/or assistantships are, in rare cases, awarded to international students based on availability of scholarship funds, faculty members’ research funds, etc.
