    UTEP's graduate students can finance their education by working and/or by taking advantage of the University's available financial assistance awards and programs.

    Financial aid is divided into the following types: merit-based, need-based, and employment. Merit-based awards are granted on the basis of the student's previous academic performance. Need-based aid is awarded according to the level of the student's financial need, with some consideration of the student's past academic performance. Employment includes jobs, both on and off campus.

    The majority of these opportunities are either through, or with, the coordination of the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships offices. A booklet on Financial Aid and Graduate Students is available from the Graduate School and the Office of Financial Aid.

    Effective January 1, 1998, a student subject to selective service registration will be required to file a statement that the student has registered or is exempt from selective service registration in order to be eligible to receive financial assistance funded by State revenue - H.B. 2061.
