Financial Aid and Scholarships

The Psychology Department is able to provide financial support for some students. Teaching assistantships with associated annual stipends of approximately $3,500 are awarded to five outstanding incoming students. The teaching assignment involves approximately 10 hours per week assisting in a testing center for introductory psychology students. Outstanding returning students are eligible for similar stipends.

Students may also apply for Federal financial aid in the form of Federal work-study or Federal Stafford student loans. To apply you need to fill out and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before the March 1 priority deadline since Federal work-study funds are limited. However, since Federal Stafford loans are entitlements, a student may apply as late as 2-3 weeks before classes start.
