GRADUATION TUITION, FEES, AND FUNDING
Tuition and fees are available on the Student Financial Services website. They are subject to revision by the University’s President and the Board of Trustees.
To help students with their educational expenses, Northeastern administers two forms of graduate financial aid:
- Fellowships and assistantships are awarded to full-time degree candidates through the Graduate Office, at the recommendation our department. There is no separate application for assistantships. Students can indicate interest in an assistantship via the “Financial Assistance” section in the online admission application. Please note that your tuition scholarship can take up to 8 weeks to process. Please pay any fees not covered by your award by the due date to avoid a Hold or Late Fee.
- Doctoral Degree Students
Stipended Graduate Assistantships (SGAs) are available to all incoming students. These awards offer a stipend, tuition remission and health plan and are available to PhD students.
Some grant-supported research assistantships are available from various faculty members. These assistantships offer a stipend, tuition remission, and health plan.
- Stipended Graduate Assistantship Training
A mandatory university-wide teaching assistantship workshop is held prior to each fall term for new Stipended Graduate Assistants (SGAs). All international SGAs must attend a mandatory International SGA Orientation as well. Returning SGA students are strongly encouraged to attend.
- Teaching and Research Assistant Pay Schedule
Stipended Graduate Assistants are paid the 15th and the last day of each month. If either of these days falls on a weekend day, the payday is the Friday prior.
- The Graduate Student Financial Services Office oversees federal financial aid and alternative educational loan programs.
