Ball State strives to keep tuition and fees affordable. For information on grants, loans, and other forms of financial assistance, visit the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships website.

You may also qualify for a graduate assistantship which provides a tuition waiver and a modest stipend. In addition to taking a full load of classes, graduate assistants work 10 to 20 hours each week on a variety of assignments. 

Assistantships are available in the Department of Journalism. Fill out our assistantship application (PDF), print it out at home, and send the completed form to the department. Some assistantships in other areas are posted with Ball State's Career Center.
