Finances

New:  Half-Price Tuition. Full-Value Education.

There’s never been a better time to consider graduate studies in English at Andrews University. We’re pleased to announce that beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, the Department of English will be able to offer its graduate programs at half the previous cost of tuition. Each graduate credit will cost under $600. A typical graduate load each semester is 6-9 credits, and the MA in English or TESOL requires a total of 33 credits of graduate work. Please contact us for further information:

We are also happy to schedule phone conversations or Skype/Facetime/Google Hangouts visits with potential applicants. We look forward to hearing from you.

Assistantships

The Department offers a limited number of Graduate Assistantships each semester. These are distributed according to availability of funds, number
of applications and suitability for each position. Graduate Assistantships are awarded and renewed semester by semester. Students are encouraged to submit a Graduate Assistant Application form, a resume, and a summary of work experience and skills to apply for Graduate Assistantship opportunities.  The service rendered to the department is considered wages and is processed through the Student Labor Office. Graduate Assistantships receive biweekly paychecks. University policy determines the rate of pay. The average is $8.50-$10.50 per hour. 
 
Grants
Grants are a one-time amount of money awarded towards the student's tuition and credited to the student's account. Grants are limited by the availability
of funds. In addition to the possibility of assistance from the English department, Andrews University has just recently started offering a gradate scholarship based on results from the GRE. Click here for more information.
