Department Stipends

Stipends are funds given to students who meet strict eligibility requirements and are approved and issued by academic departments and/or financial aid offices. Stipends are not loans.

  • Stipends may go directly to the student or be applied to pay certain educational expenses on the University bill.
  • Stipends are only processed to student accounts. Exceptions are made for Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS Loans).
  • Stipends are available on or after the first day of classes for students who are enrolled.

For eligibility requirements, students should contact their academic department advisor or Financial Aid Office.

Note:  Due to certain federal student aid rules, some charges on the University bill may NOT be paid when financial aid is applied. In these cases, the student may receive a stipend and still have a balance due.
