Student Financial Support

  • The Genetic Counseling Program is a professional degree; as such, students typically finance their matriculation through personal resources, loans and financial aid.
  • All matriculated students in good standing with the University and graduate program will receive a stipend to be credited to their student bursar account. The total stipend amount is budgeted to be $2000 per year/student. Logistical processes for time and method of disbursement will be announced.
  • Students should have no expectations of support through departmental or university research or teaching assistantships.
  • Employment outside of the graduate program may prove difficult for students due to the time investment per credit, rigor of the classes, and varied schedules for clinical site placements.
  • Fieldwork placements are weekdays only during regular business hours of 8-5.
  • Many additional sources of funding for graduate education exist through both internal and external opportunities.
    • Opportunities to seek external funding can be found through the Office of National Scholarships & Fellowships.
    • A searchable database of opportunities can be accessed through the website, in addition to resources helpful to graduate students seeking to prepare competitive applications.
  • There may be aid available based on demonstrated financial need.

New England Regional Tuition

New England Regional Student Program

If you are a legal resident of a New England state (CT, ME, MA, NH, RI, VT), you may be eligible for a tuition reduction under the New England Regional Student Program. The New England Board of Higher Education provides New England residents with a tuition reduction when they pursue certain majors at New England public colleges and universities. To be eligible for this tuition reduction, the student must be enrolled in an approved degree program that is not available at a public institution in their state of legal residence. Qualified students receive a reduction of the out-of-state tuition cost.
