How Can I Pay for My Graduate Degree?
Admitted PhD students are typically guaranteed funding to fully support them throughout their studies, based on meeting our program requirements. PhD students may be funded by a combination of Fellowships, Research Assistantships and/or Teaching Assistantships.
We do not offer financial assistance for admitted MS students and many students take out student loans. It is possible to obtain a Teaching Assistantship or Research Assistantship, but priority is first given to PhD students and they are heavily competitive.
How Do I Apply to Be a TA?
The TA application is located on the Computer Science department website and is available about a month prior to the start of each quarter.
