Most graduate programs that offer teaching and research assistantships will consider international applicants. Not every graduate program at Marquette University has assistantship positions to offer. Assistantship consideration is very competitive, and we receive applications for many more qualified applicants than our dollars can support. International students who receive assistantships must have very strong English-speaking abilities and must be able to obtain the appropriate student visas that will allow them to work.
On occasion, a partial scholarship may be offered to an international student. If this happens, the student is required to show proof that he/she has personal funds to support him/her during the program and will be required to pay a tuition deposit and health insurance premium before an I-20 can be issued for a student visa.
