​Tuition & Finan​​​cial Assistance​ for Graduate Students

​​​​​​PhD Students: All full-time PhD applications are reviewed for full financial support (tuition remission, stipend and health insurance subsidy). Most offers of financial support are guaranteed as long as the student is making progress toward completion of the degree. Each engineering department may offer specific fellowships.

​Master's ​Students: Master’s students are expected to be self-supporting. There are limited fellowship and research assistantship opportunities available for full-time master’s students.

Full-Time Status for Master’s Students is defined as: Enrolled in 9 units or more OR Enrolled in any “883” placeholder course (Masters Continuing Student) 

Full-time Status for PhD and DSc Students is defined as: Enrolled in 9 units or more OR Enrolled in any “884” placeholder course (Doctoral Continuing Student)

  • ​​​Tuition is based on the number of enrolled course units. When a student takes 9 or more units, a flat-rate tuition is applied. A per unit rate is applied if a student is enrolled in 8 or less units. 
  • Tuition for full-time students is determined by each student’s prime division, not by the division that teaches the course. Students should check with their department before enrolling in courses outside their division. 
  • International graduate students are not permitted to register for fewer than 9 units without special permission from the Office of International Students and Scholars.​​​​​
