All of our students, as long as they are in good academic standing, continue to make progress toward their degree, and perform satisfactorily in an appointed position (such as TAship or AIship), receive Departmental or University financial support of some type. A GPA of no less than 3.0 must be maintained and, each academic quarter (Fall/Winter/Spring), a student must register for at least twelve units. This support consists of a salary or stipend, plus full or partial fee remission. For nonresidents, several fellowships are available to help pay the nonresident tuition.
