Financing Your Education
Employment of graduate students as Graduate Assistants enables them to pursue their graduate education, strengthens the quality of their educational experience, and helps the University develop the quality of its graduate programs. Graduate Assistant positions also provide valuable and necessary services to the University. However, because these positions are held by graduate students, their duties should have a direct relationship to their academic program of study. The application for a graduate assistantship position is due by February 1.

Graduate Tuition Guarantee Program
In order to provide a basis for personal economic planning for graduate campus-based course work and to encourage the completion of graduate degree requirements at The University of Scranton, a graduate student beginning a course of study will be eligible for a guaranteed tuition rate based on the initial academic term (either fall semester, intersession, spring semester, or summer sessions) for a total of three calendar years.
Graduate students will be eligible for a guaranteed tuition rate based on the initial academic term for a total of three calendar years. This policy does not pertain to Accountancy Online, Business Administration Online, Dual Business Administration/ Health Administration Online, Finance Online, Health Administration Online, Health Informatics Online, Human Resource Management Online, Nurse Anesthesia, Scranton Education Online or Transitional DPT program participants.
In order to be eligible for this program, the student must maintain and successfully complete a total of at least nine graduate credit hours per year. As long as this requirement is satisfied, the guaranteed rate can continue for a period not to exceed 36 months from the date of initial enrollment.
If the student does not satisfy the above requirements, or the 36 month limit is exceeded, the student will be charged tuition at the current academic year’s rate.
