Each year OSU awards more than $15 million in stipends to graduate teaching assistants and graduate research assistants. Graduate students in Communication Sciences and Disorders may receive a .25 FTE (10 hours per week) graduate teaching assistantship (GTA).  In addition to a monthly stipend, students are awarded a full tuition waiver.   Students accepted into the graduate program will be reviewed for assistantship. No application is required.  Assistantships are awarded on merit.  GRE scores and undergraduate GPA factor heavily into the decision to award.
