FAQs--Paying for Graduate School


Q: How much does graduate school cost?

Current rates for tuition and fees are located on the University's Admissions and Aid website. 

Q: Are there scholarships available for students in the Graduate History Program?

Yes! You can learn about our department scholarships on our Student Funding page.

Q: Are there assistantships available for students in the Graduate History Program?

Yes! You can learn about department assistantships on our Student Funding page.

Q: Do graduate students qualify for federal or state financial aid?

Yes. Because each student has a unique financial situation, please consult the University's Financial Aid website for more information.

Q: Are graduate students eligible for work-study employment positions on campus?

Yes. You can learn about the requirements and procedures for applying for work-study positions on campus on the University's Student Employment website. 

Q: Do graduate students work off campus while enrolled in their programs?

Yes, some do. Because your graduate coursework will be more demanding than what you experienced as an undergraduate, it will be important for you to find the right balance. Some students who work while in our graduate program only take one or two courses, as opposed to three, which is typical in our program. If you are offered an assistantship in our program and find that you still need outside employment, you are required to fill out and submit to us a Graduate Assistant Outside Employment Approval Form.
