Graduate Assistant Support

Beginning Fall 2023, we began providing some of the most competitive minimum graduate stipends in the nation and covering 75% of the student health insurance premium costs for graduate assistants.

Graduate Assistants are automatically enrolled in the health insurance each semester (fall, summer, spring). If insurance is not wanted, GAs have to waive each semester, even if they waived the previous semester.

This page will be used to disseminate information.  It will also serve as a centralized resource for students, faculty, and administrators.
