Almost all of our Ph.D. students receive some form of funding. Funding packages available to graduate students include teaching or research assistantships. Awards are made on the basis of scholarship and promise for outstanding achievement. The applicant's grade point average, GRE scores, statement of purpose, and letters of recommendation are the primary means used to allocate financial aid for graduate students. Candidates who submit admissions materials by February 15 will be considered for funding packages.
