The BPSD program supports a student from the time of entry into the program until the time a permanent advisor is selected. At that point, it becomes the responsibility of the advisor to arrange to support that student (including stipend, tuition, and health insurance) for the remainder of his or her graduate education, be it from the advisor’s resources or from some other source of funding, provided that the student continues making satisfactory progress in his/her graduate program as determined by his/her Supervisory Committee.
This financial support includes a stipend, a tuition waiver, and student-only health insurance. The current graduate student stipend rate is $2,534 per month (or $30,408/year). While we pay your tuition, the student fees (approximately $475/quarter) will be your responsibility.
All students are responsible for paying the following quarterly fees:
- Building Fee
- Service & Activities Fee
- IMA Bond Fee
- Facilities Renovation Fee
- U-Pass Fee
Note: Fee list is current as of Autumn 2015; subject to change.
