Graduate assistantships
A majority of students in the M.S. and Ph.D. programs 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 inurance (exclusive of dental and eyewear).

Tuition waivers
A small number of in-state tuition waivers are available to students with a GPA above 3.4.

Scholarships
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.
