Assistantships & Financial Aid
Fall 2007 semester graduate tuition and fees at TTU were approximately $3000 for in-state and approximately $7000 for out-of-state students. If a student receives a half or full assistantship, the entire out-of-state $4000 fee is waived. In addition, a half assistantship receives a 50 percent waiver of the in-state fees (leaving $1500 due from the student) and a full assistantship receives a 100 percent waiver of in-state fees (leaving no fees due from the student).
The Department offers graduate teaching assistantships (GTAs) each semester. About half of these GTA positions are full ($1000/month stipend plus full tuition waiver for 20 hours/week of work) and the others are half ($500/month stipend plus half tuition waiver for 10 hours/week of work). The TTU Office of Graduate Studies also offers a limited number of Graduate Minority Student Fellowships each year, with full stipend and full tuition waiver. The CESR and CMR Research Centers offer graduate research assistantships (GRAs) to both MS and PhD students. One hundred percent of our Ph.D. students have received support and about 80 percent of our MS students have received support.
