The Civil Engineering Department can offer research assistantships to well-qualified students. Assistantships are awarded competitively based on an
assessment of each student’s transcripts, test scores, and letters of recommendation.
Before you can be considered for an assistantship, you must first apply and be accepted
into the graduate program. You must apply online.
Just click on the "First time user account creation" link near the bottom of the page
to create your online account and begin the application process. There is a non-refundable
application fee of $35 for domestic applicants and $60 for international applicants.
The fee must be paid by credit card.

Applicants whose highest degree is from a foreign university must have their transcripts
evaluated on a course-by-course basis by one of the credentialing agencies listed
on the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services' website (www.naces.org). This evaluation can be done AFTER we accept you to the program and, if we provide
you with an assistantship, we will reimburse you for the cost as part of your assistantship.
Additional admissions information can be found at the Graduate Admissions Office website.
All students requesting financial assistance must complete the Assistantship Application Form and submit three Letters of Recommendation from previous instructors attesting to the student’s academic ability and potential
to do graduate-level research.
The deadline to apply for an assistantship for Fall Semester is May 1 of the same
year. The deadline to apply for an assistantship for Spring Semester is September
15 of the previous year. These deadlines apply to both domestic and international
students seeking an assistantship.
