The Computing Ph.D. program has limited funds and typically only funds students in their first year. All admitted students are automatically considered for available program-funded GA positions. By the end of their first semester, students are required to have an advisor who will help secure funding for the remainder of their degree program.
To maximize your chance to receive program funding you should submit your application by the priority deadline. If you submit by this deadline the process is as follows:
- Students receive admission notification from the Graduate College one and a half to two months after the application deadline.
- Admitted students who are awarded funding in the first wave are notified within two and a half to three months after the application deadline.
- Additional waves of funding offers will be sent out until all GA positions have been filled.
Please note that all funding offers are valid only for the semesters in which they are offered.
