Policy Statement

Graduate students in the Arts and Sciences have access to the same kinds of academic support that are provided for undergraduate students. In the case of services that have a user fee (tutoring, Learning Disability testing, etc.), graduate students are also expected to pay the user fee. When an exception to a fee is made for those undergraduate students on financial aid, then graduate students can request that their source of financial aid pay for the service. Depending on the service required and their degree of financial need, graduate students may seek support from their department, Graduate Studies, and the Office of Financial Aid.
