Merit scholarship

All completed applications are considered for merit scholarship upon review. Recipients will learn of the decision for merit when the admissions decision is published.

Graduate Assistantships

However, the assistantship or appointment will not be eligible for tuition remission (waiver of tuition or academic fees).
