A student with a graduate assistantship or fellowship may be employed by the university for compensation in addition to the awarded stipend. This employment may only occur with permission of the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research and usually must be limited to 10 hours per week. Requests for permission for such employment must be sent in writing by the department Chair or graduate program director to the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research.

Graduate students may request aid for travel expenses to present papers on thesis or dissertation research at regional or national meetings. Such requests should be presented only after a paper has been accepted by the official sponsoring organization of the discipline. Funds for such purposes are very limited, and only modest requests are likely to be funded. Funds for such purposes should be requested sequentially from the following contact points:
Dean of the College
Office of Graduate Studies and Research
When submitting written requests to the Office of Graduate Studies and Research for travel funds, a breakdown of expenses for registration, lodging, travel, and per diem is necessary.
Graduate students may submit requests for funding to meet publication costs of a paper accepted for publication up to $50 from the Graduate Student Research and Scholarship Committee (GSRSC) in the form of dissemination grants. Requests should be in the form required by the GSRSC and submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies and Research. (See information above under Research Grants.)
Academic departments ordinarily are expected to meet at least some of the costs of thesis and dissertation research. In some instances such costs may be met by extramural funds obtained by faculty and/or departments. With the exception of the small research grant program listed above, the Office of Graduate Studies and Research does not provide funds for such purposes and will refer students to the department chair or dean of the college when such requests occur. Publication costs of theses and dissertations are met by the student unless a faculty member or department chooses to pay such costs with funds available to them.
