All graduate students pay the Miami Metro fee, Technology fee, and Facilities fee.
Many opportunities are available for graduate assistant appointments for part-time teaching and research. Because awards vary with each program, check with your program for specific amounts and responsibilities of the award.
Graduate assistantships are ordinarily offered on a half-time basis. Graduate assistants work an average of 18 to 20 hours per week and carry a minimum of 9 graduate credit hours each semester.
Modified graduate assistantships require eight hours of work per week and require the student to carry 9 graduate credit hours each semester. These awards are offered primarily by the Richard T. Farmer School of Business.
Teaching associateships/doctoral associateships are awarded to students who have already earned a master's degree. These awards require half-time duties for students pursuing a doctoral degree or a specialist in education degree. Also, these students must carry a minimum of 9 graduate credit hours each semester.
Residence hall assistantships are primarily for students who plan careers in college student personnel work. These awards also include room and board.
Graduate summer scholarships are granted for the summer to students who have held graduate assistantships or associateships during the academic year. Information is sent in March to all eligible students. Service-free graduate summer scholarships are awarded for up to $1,800.
Graduate grants-in-aid, for full-time graduate students, waive 86% of the comprehensive fee and all of the out-of-state tuition surcharge (if applicable). There are no stipend payments and no required duties. Contact the Graduate School.
