Tuition, Financial Aid, & Scholarships


Education can be expensive, but the Cook School is committed to ensuring that finances are not a reason to keep you from getting your degree.


Each student accepted into the Ph.D. program is awarded a graduate assistantship which is renewable for a period of four years as long as there is continual and satisfactory progress toward degree completion.

Assistantship duties are evenly divided between teaching and research assistance. Funding for the calendar year provides for 21 credit-hours of tuition remission and a stipend of $16,000.
