We do not use Master's level students to teach in our College, therefore we do not offer teaching assistantships or fellowships.
Unfortunately, we are not able to award scholarships to non-U.S. Citizens or residents. Florida Bright Futures recipients who graduated with their Bachelor’s degree in 7 semesters/105 credits or less may be eligible to apply remaining Bright Futures funding to the first semester of a graduate program. Contact your undergraduate financial aid adviser for more information.
Florida Pre-Paid students, before cashing out a pre-paid account, contact your undergraduate financial aid adviser for more information about using remaining pre-paid funds for graduate tuition.
Applying for Federal Student Aid and Loans
Most students (U.S. Citizens/U.S. Residents) are eligible to receive federal loans. To apply for federal loans, you must complete the Federal Student Aid FAFSA Application.
