Financial Assistance for Graduate Students
Almost every graduate program at the University of South Alabama offers a limited number of Graduate Assistantships. The assistantships include a stipend plus course credit hour cost (courses which count for the degree sought only) for in-state, out-of-state, and international students. The number of credit hours covered by semester are dependent on the program in which the student is enrolled. Graduate assistants are expected to perform up to 20 hours a week of education related duties such as assisting in teaching or research. More information on Graduate Assistantships may be found here.
