Housing Supplement

The campus offers an annual housing supplement of $2,500 for eligible doctoral and MFA students who are enrolled full-time through the Office of Financial Aid until additional campus graduate student housing is available.

The annual housing supplement is allocated to PhD/MFA students in good standing, pro-rated for the number of quarters students are registered full-time (or $833/quarter). For quarters in which students are registered part-time, they are allocated 1/2 the supplement. Students on filing fee, in absentia, or are on a Leave of Absence, as well as international students who are not in the US are not eligible for the supplement. If students return to regular enrollment status mid-year, their disbursement will be determined by the prorated number of quarters that they are enrolled.

Processing of Housing Supplements will begin after the Fall Quarter Add/Drop/Swap deadline for graduate students. Dispersals to most eligible domestic graduate students will be batch-paid, approximately the first week of December. Dispersals to international graduate students are processed via a manual pay mechanism on a rolling basis. This more complex payment mechanism for international students is required by tax law, and results in longer processing times due to the individualized tax-associated paperwork. There can also be additional delays if required documentation is missing or incomplete. For students who returned to regular enrollment status mid-year, payments will be processed after the Spring Quarter Add/Drop/Swap deadline. 


PLEASE update your payment information (via payee 204 Docusign Powerform link: Payee Setup 204 Form Helper  for your new address if you have recently moved and you receive a paper check. We recommend that, if possible, you sign up for direct deposit). If you are an international student, please make sure that relevant documentation (i.e., Glacier forms signed and dated with current calendar year and "Scholarship/Fellowship" tax benefit displayed on the form) are up-to-date to avoid payment delays.
