Tuition Support

The Graduate School provides full tuition support for the majority of doctoral students via the Graduate Assistant Support Program (GASP). More than 15% of Master's students obtain one or two years of tuition grants. 

FAQ: How do I apply for tuition support from the Graduate school?

Answer:  Apply to attend a graduate program at UNC Charlotte.  If you are offered admission, doctoral programs may provide funding support that includes tuition support for you.  Master's programs may make an offer of funding support to their most outstanding applicants.
