Students holding a quarter-time or more teaching or research assistantship (covered by the COGS bargaining unit) are assured a minimum tuition scholarship of $7,900 per year. This does not include scholarships for Summer Session enrollment. Rates are based on a registration of 9 semester hours (or more) and are prorated as necessary.
