Estimated Expenses and Financial Aid
Please see the below for an estimate of the following support requirements for your information and planning for 2018–2019. (Actual figures listed on immigration documents will vary slightly.)

*Health insurance is for the student. This fee can be waived if the student has his/her own insurance that meets University criteria. Spouses who enroll in the University-sponsored health insurance plan pay the same fees for health insurance and the mandatory health fee as the student.
Merit-based awards are provided by the academic department during the admission process, while federal and private loan funding can be obtained through the Financial Aid Office.
The application required for federal student loans is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Students who have completed their application materials will be reviewed for aid eligibility. Eligibility is determined based upon planned enrollment.
Please contact the Financial Aid Office at (800) 881-8234 or visit its website for additional details on loans and contact information for staff members.
In addition to financial aid, graduate students may be eligible for University or external fellowships. See our fellowship page for more information.
External Work Policy
Full-time students holding fellowships, assistantships, or scholarships may not accept other full-time employment.
