Department of Educational Specialties

Department Financing Information

Our faculty has been successful in securing financial assistance for students through grants from the US Department of Education. This assistance is available for limited periods of time and is constantly changing.

Every spring the Educational Specialties department has several graduate assistantships and tuition waivers available for qualifying students. Students who apply to any of these opportunities will be reviewed by a selection committee and award announcements will be made by the end of April or beginning of May.

Graduate Assistantship

To qualify for a Graduate Assistantship (GA), you need to:

  • be enrolled full time (9 units) in one of the Educational Specialties graduate programs or in the C&I Doctoral Program
  • able to work 20 hrs. per week to fulfill the GA assignment
  • not be funded by an agency that covers tuition costs

Tuition Waiver
