Financial Aid

Financial Aid, in the form of Teaching Assistantships, Graduate Assistantships, and Tuition Scholarships is offered to qualified students already admitted to the program according to established departmental policies and procedures. Students should be aware of certain restrictions and limitations imposed upon their award:

  1. Aid (assistantships, fellowships, and scholarships) is offered only to students whose major or primary field is in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, except for exchange students in connection with our study abroad programs.
  2. Awards are usually renewed for a second year when the student's work (as teacher and as student) is satisfactory. Funding is normally limited to two years. Students who go abroad for a semester or a year are not considered funded during the time abroad. Thus, a student who has one year on campus as a teaching assistant, a graduate assistant, or a tuition scholar, then goes abroad for a semester, will still be eligible for two semesters of funding upon his/her return. However, students cannot be funded for any given semester unless they need at least six credits of graded graduate courses in order to complete the requirement for the degree. Hence, the student who takes five courses in the first year and then earns six credits (two courses) during a semester abroad, will be funded for only one additional semester upon his/her return.
  3. Students who enter the graduate program with six or more transfer credits (from CEND or another institution) will normally be entitled to a maximum of three semesters of funding.
  4. While an extension may be granted under special circumstances, the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures is not obligated to fund or otherwise support students in their third year if they have not completed all requirements for the MA degree. In case of vacancies for instruction at the 100-level, the Department will try to find other candidates before rehiring graduate students who have not completed the MA degree requirements.
  5. Students who elect a double major are eligible for a fifth semester of funding. They may also seek to complete their degree in two years by taking advantage of the thesis option.
  6. Students who receive 100% of the minimum stipend and a 100% tuition scholarship may not hold additional employment on or off campus. As with any professional appointment, the amount of service may vary from week to week, but the average is usually expected to be no more than 20 hours of service per week for the U.D. minimum stipend. Students seeking an exception to this policy should petition the department's Director of Graduate Studies, who will consult with the Department Chair. Should they decide to support the student's request, the petition will be forwarded to the Dean's Office of the College of Arts and Science. Dean's permission is required for any exception to this "no other employment policy" and APPROVAL BY THE DEAN must be forwarded to the Office of Graduate and Professional Education.
