Texas A & M University is committed to attracting the highest caliber graduate student, and has consistently increased the amount of resources dedicated to graduate education. The University strives to improve insurance benefits for graduate assistants and increased the number and amount of fellowships. These efforts were recently enhanced through payment of resident tuition for graduate assistants involved in teaching or working in areas closely associated with their academic field of study.
This university paid tuition program is based on resident, designated and graduate tuition. Criteria: Students must be registered full time to receive a maximum of 9 credit hours eligible tuition paid for fall/spring and a maximum of 6 hours for summer. Each eligible graduate assistant must be at least 50% FTE (full time equivalent) to receive payment. Normally, all newly admitted PhD students within Mays business school receive a graduate assistantship and meet these requirements.
   Texas residents pay $213 per semester credit hour for graduate study. Out-of-state and international graduate students pay $494 per semester credit hour. Educational expenses for nine months of study vary according to personal needs and the program of study. The Financial Aid Office's estimated annual costs for new resident graduate students including tuition and fees, books, supplies, transportation, room and board and incidental and living expenses are approximately $20,081 per year. The estimated costs for new nonresident and international students are approximately $25,937 per year. Total expenses for returning students during an academic year should be slightly less than those for new students.
   Financial aid is available in the form of University Paid Tuition Program, scholarships, fellowships, and teaching or research assistantships, which also waive out-of-state tuition for non-Texas residents.
