TO CALCULATE EXPENSES

Add the figures above, as they apply, to the "International Graduate Costs" listed at the top of the page. Health insurance is mandatory for International students and each family member living in the United States. Graduate Associateships receive discounted health insurance for themselves, and a generous subsidy for the health insurance of their dependents.

Financial Support

Graduate Associateships

Each year, Ohio State employs several thousand graduate associates including graduate teaching associates (GTAs), graduate research associates (GRAs), and graduate administrative associates (GAAs). GTAs, GRAs and GAAs are the primary source of financial assistance provided to graduate students. GTAs may be asked to teach, assist with laboratory work, and/or perform other related activities. GRAs are assigned to research projects supervised by graduate professors. It is usually possible to carry out thesis and dissertation research on such projects. GAAs perform a variety of administrative and management duties.

Most graduate associates work 20 hours per week for 9 months, and receive a monthly stipend and a fee authorization for tuition. Ohio State offers stipends that are competitive with other universities of similar size and scope.

Associateship positions generally begin in the Autumn Quarter and are renewable, depending upon the student's job performance, grades, and availability of funds. The availability of graduate associateships varies from program to program. To be eligible for consideration, you must meet all of the admission requirements of the graduate program and apply by the appropriate program application deadline.

If you wish to be considered for a GTA and your native language is not English, you are required to take the Test of Spoken English (TSE).

Graduate Fellowship

Most graduate fellowship awards provide a monthly stipend and payment of resident and non-resident fees. Terms and renewability vary, however, with the type of fellowship awarded. Graduate fellowships are limited in number and are awarded on a competitive basis each year to applicants who show outstanding scholarly accomplishment and exceptional potential for graduate study. Fellowship appointments generally begin autumn quarter.

To be automatically considered eligible for University Fellowship nomination, applicants must present a minimum cumulative grade point average of at least 3.6 on a 4.0 scale or an equivalent on another numeric scale such as 4.5 on a 5.0 scale; 9 on a 10 point scale; or a First Class on a British-based grading system or overall percentage of a least 88% for other international percentage-based grading systems.

In addition, the GRE General Test or GMAT is required if you are applying for a Fellowship in a Ph.D., M.A., M.S., or DMA degree program. Applicants must achieve a 75th percentile average on the GRE's Verbal and Quantitative components and a 4.0 on the Analytical Writing component. Applicants taking the GMAT must achieve a 75th percentile on the Total Score. For more information about eligibility for Ohio State Graduate School Fellowships, go to the index of our website under "Financial Aid."

Note: The Fellowship deadline for Fall 2014 is November 30, 2013. All application materials must be received by that date to be considered for a fellowship.

Each graduate program selects the most highly qualified applicants and places their names in nomination to the Graduate School on January 23. Fellowship awards are announced February 26. Recipients' acceptances of the awards are due April 15.
