Assistantships are awarded on the basis of your academic achievement and the needs of the College. Students must achieve a score of at least 23 on the TOEFL speaking subtest or a score of at least 7 on the speaking section of the IELTS. Students who have not satisfied this requirement before arriving on campus must either take the TOEFL or IELTS at a local testing center and achieve the required minimum score or take and successfully pass the UTA Developmental English course. List on the application all your skills and talents that may be of special interest to our faculty.
Recipients of assistantships are expected to work for the College for approximately 20 hours per week. Duties will be assigned on the basis of the needs of the departments and the qualifications of the graduate student.
Stipends for graduate assistantships start at approximately $6,000 - $6,500 per 9 month academic year for master's students and approximately $13,000 - $18,900 per 9 month academic year for doctoral students, with a limited number of tuition waiver Fellowsips available each fall semester to incoming students new to the PhD program. Summer assistantships are not assured. Those students who work 20 hours or more a week are normally entitled to pay at the much lower Texas resident tuition rate.
