These forms include a checklist that will help you to be sure that you are meeting all requirements for graduation.
Financial assistance Accordion Closed
- Graduate Assistantships– Graduate Teaching Assistantships and Graduate Research Assistantships are available on a competitive basis and availability varies based on the needs of the program. All admitted and continuing Flagstaff Mountain Campus ME graduate students are automatically considered for assistantships; no additional application is necessary. Currently, there are no assistantships for online ME graduate students. Graduate assistants receive health insurance, tuition remission, and a stipend. Full-time graduate assistants, working 20 hours a week, receive 100% tuition remission, while part-time graduate assistants, working 10 hours a week, receive 50% tuition remission. Stipend amounts vary by the number of hours worked, the type of assistantship, and your degree program.
- Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP)– Some of the NAU Mechanical Engineering graduate programs are part of the WRGP program, so qualified out-of-state students from the western US may be eligible for in-state tuition.
- Financial Aid– Students may be eligible for additional financial aid and scholarships. See the Graduate College’s webpage on financing your education for more information.
