Laptop Computer Requirement
Access to computer-based information is essential in today's business environment and a laptop computer is the key to having computing capability available at all times, in all locations. Therefore all graduate students in the Warrington College of Business Administration (WCBA) are required to own a laptop computer, that will be used to access course information and facilitate communication with faculty, staff and other graduate students. Requirements for MSM are the same as the requirements for all WCBA Graduate Students. The MSM Program has no additional departmental requirements. Please review the WCBA Laptop Computer Requirements.
Part of your time with the Hough Graduate School in the Warrington College of Business Administration will be spent job hunting. You will need the appropriate wardrobe to participate in College of Business events Career Fair events and interview on campus.

Financial aid in the form of federal loans/grants is available to U.S. Citizens/Permanent Residents. Please review the information on the Student Financial Affairs web site for loan/grant information. You can eliminate some potential frustration and help the process go smoothly by applying early and taking time to carefully read all information. Keep addresses updated with the Registrar's Office through myUFL and ISIS. All correspondences (and checks) are mailed to addresses on file with that office. Students must fill out the current year financial aid applications in order to get aid for the summer. For fall and spring, an application for the next school year must be filled out. Please contact one of the Warrington College of Business Administration Financial Aid Counselors located in Hough Hall for loan/grant information. The MSM program cannot assist you in this matter.

International students: No federal or state loan or grant programs exist for international students. International students must be able to pay the cost of tuition and living expenses. Please refer to the Links to Aid for International Students and to the UF International Center website for information regarding financial aid, tuition waivers, campus employment, etc. The MSM office is unable to assist you with these issues.
The MSM program has extremely limited funds to offer small scholarships to outstanding students. This money is available for U.S. Citizens/Permanent Residents only. Candidates are identified in the admission process and may be called in for an interview. We do not offer assistantships or fellowships because we do not use Master's students to teach undergraduate courses in the Hough Graduate School/Warrington College of Business Administration.
