A majority of students in the M.S. program receive financial assistance, usually in the form of research and teaching assistantships. In view of the reasonable cost of living in Tucson, the real income offered by these stipends is relatively high and covers basic costs of living. The assistantships also carry waivers of out-of-state tuition and health insurance (exclusive of dental and vision). All applicants that submit a completed admission application as of the annual priority deadline (Feb. 1) are reviewed for possible assistantships on a competitive basis.
A small number of in-state tuition waivers are available to students with a GPA above 3.4.
Several scholarships are available for academically qualified students. Frequently, a student not awarded an assistantship may be employed by the Department to aid in research work. Students who do not receive assistantships may also hold part-time jobs in other departments or jobs outside the University.
International applicants may be considered for conditional admission to this program at the department's discretion.
