Financial Support for MS students

There is generally no financial aid available, except as follows:

MS in the Teaching of Mathematics: A teaching assistantship and full tuition waiver (plus partial fee waiver) will be offered for three semesters to all admitted applicants who are native speakers of English or satisfy the English Proficiency Requirement for International Teaching Assistants.

Other MS students in mathematics are sometimes hired as teaching assistants after enrollment, on an as-needed basis each semester. There is no guarantee of employment, so students must be prepared to finance the entire cost of their degree program from other sources. Currently enrolled MS students who wish to be considered as teaching assistants should register here. International students must satisfy the English Proficiency Requirement as measured by the Internet Based TOEFL (iBT), the IELTS, the TSE (Test of Spoken English), or the university-administered EPI (English Proficiency Interview) to be eligible for consideration as teaching assistants.

Other sources of support

Some MS students may qualify for Fellowship support from various sources outside the Department of Mathematics.

Some students find employment elsewhere on campus: see the Graduate Assistantship Clearinghouse.

MS students may apply for student loans through the Office of Student Financial Aid.
