Financial Aid

Financial assistance can be an integral part of a student's education regardless of the level of education achieved. The Lee Business School, Financial Aid and Scholarships office, and Graduate College offer several forms of financial aid that include loans, grants, scholarships, fellowships, and graduate assistantships to assist MBA students to obtain a degree. Almost everyone, regardless of their income, can qualify for some type of financial aid.

Graduate Assistantships

A graduate assistantship provides financial support and cannot be combined with other employment. Graduate assistantship positions are available on a competitive basis to students admitted to any graduate degree program. Graduate assistants must enroll in and maintain a minimum of 6 semester hours of graduate credit and are required a work commitment of 20 hours per week.
