Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistantships are available each year to full-time graduate students (minimum of nine graduate credit hours) and includes a waiver of Pennsylvania tuition and selected fees, as well as a bi-weekly stipend. Graduate assistantships provide the graduate student with opportunities for professional, collegial, and academic growth. To this purpose, graduate assistants are assigned to work in a professional area on campus. Awards are based on a competitive process. Students should apply for an assistantship by March 15 to be considered for the following academic year. Contact the Associate Provost’s Office, 204 Retan, or (570) 662-4565, for additional information and/ or an application.

Financial Obligation

Failure to meet your financial obligation by the due dates may result in future registrations blocked and transcripts withheld. The minimum amount required to confirm your registration is your total charge, LESS financial aid, DIVIDED by two, PLUS any beginning balance. Payment of the minimum amount due will allow you to defer the remaining balance due for six weeks. Failure to make full payment will automatically incur a deferred payment fee of $50.

Late Payment Charge

A Late Payment charge will be assessed if a student’s account balance (net of approved financial aid) is not paid in full at the end of the semester deferred payment period (six weeks from the start of the semester). The amount of the Late Payment charge is proportional to the account balance as described in the following table.
