All matriculated students must reapply each year for financial aid. The application for continuation of aid is available through the department/program and is typically due by the date on the Academic Calendar, unless the department specifies an earlier date.

Students receiving all forms of financial aid described above are required to:

  • maintain a minimum GPA of 3.5.
  • in addition to meeting the requirements of Satisfactory Academic performance, they must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards as well (please see section 7.5 of the GSAS Policies and Procedures guidebook).
  • be a full-time student.
  • hold no employment during the academic year without the written permission of the Dean.
  • promptly inform GSAS of any other University-funded awards or alternate appointment (e.g. resident assistantships). Please note that such awards or appointments will reduce the total amount of financial aid provided by GSAS, relative to the level and type of the funding. employment as a staff member of the University while matriculated as a full time student requires the written permission of the Dean, and is rarely granted.
