The Computational Biology Faculty Research Award provides students with a GRA.
GRA awards pay for the “regular” portion of your graduate tuition. For in-state students, regular tuition is $6894 per semester. Since MSBINF is a differential program, our total in-state tuition and fees are $8121 per semester. So with the GRA waiver, you still have $1227 in tuition per semester. Plus you have student fees of $1008 and health insurance of $259 (based on fall 2018 rates). The remaining student-paid tuition and fees are $2494 per semester while on GRA.
Out of State Students:
GRA awards pay for the “regular” portion of your graduate tuition. For out-of-state students, regular tuition is $14,284 per semester. The total tuition for MSBINF is $18,059 per semester. MS BINF GRA students are responsible for differential tuition of $3775, plus $1008 in fees and $259 in health insurance. This is a total of $5042 for semesters you receive the award, based on fall 2018 tuition rates.
