Financial Aid

All students who complete applications by February 1 are considered for graduate assistantships. Faculty review applications by genre (fiction, poetry, or creative nonfiction) and primary criteria for determing assistantship offers are: 1) quality of the writing sample (including statement of purpose); 2) letters of recommendation attesting to the applicant's potential for success as a writer and student in our graduate program; and 3) academic transcripts demonstrating academic success in prior educational institutions. We do ask that applicants include a résumé with their applications. If you are selected for an assistantship, your résumé will help determine the assistantship best suited for you.
