  • The International Competitive Scholarship reduces tuition costs to in-state resident tuition rates (approximately 70% reduction on regular tuition and fees), plus awards a $100 stipend (cash award) each fall and spring. The award is based on applicant’s GPA (grade point average) and TOEFL scores. It is only awarded to new incoming students, is renewable for a maximum of 8 semesters for undergraduate students or 4 semesters for graduate students, and is subject to GPA requirements. It requires an application, see the award criteria and application.
  • Graduate assistantships are working positions usually in one’s field of study in the form of a teaching or research position. If interested, applicants should contact their academic department directly to inquire.
  • Career Services offers on-campus employment on a part-time basis. To find suitable positions, students use the on-line campus employment webpages to register and apply for jobs. International students can only apply for regular on-campus student employment, and are not eligible for work-study positions. Employment is limited to 20 hours per week on campus during the fall and spring semesters.
