Chemical Engineering Graduate Financial Aid
Over 90% of eligible students admitted to the program are offered aid prior to the start of their initial semester.
Currently, 100% of eligible students in good standing have received financial aid offers prior to the start of their second semester.
Financial Aid Offers
With a research revenue averaging two million dollars over the past five years, we are able to offer all of our incoming graduate students some form of financial assistance. Nearly all students receive an assistantship by their second semester pending satisfactory progress.
Our financial assistance package includes a full‐tuition waiver and health insurance coverage.
Financial aid depends upon availability and the ranking list. Financial aid offers are then made from this ranked list based on the number of teaching and research assistantships we predict will be available in the initial semester. This is done on a department‐wide basis, therefore students are not recruited by individual faculty members
This list is based on many factors and degree type is one of the factors. If all other factors were equal, we would offer aid to a Ph.D. applicant before an M.S. applicant. But there are many factors we consider.
In general, if your qualifications are marginal, you are more likely to be offered aid prior to your initial session if you apply for the Spring session compared to the Fall session.
Finical Aid Acceptance Period
If you are offered financial aid, you will typically have 30 days to accept the aid and certify that you will actually enroll at UND. If you decide not to enroll, we will then offer your aid to the next student on the waiting list.
What happens if I am admitted but do not get an initial financial aid offer?
You will be placed on a waiting list based on your order on the ranking list. When aid becomes available and your name comes to the top of the list, you are offered aid.
If you enroll at UND without aid, you will be given priority for aid over any newly admitted students for the next semester, as long as you are a student in good standing.
