Stipend Payments

Disbursement schedule for 1st year PhD students:

New PhD students will receive your first stipend payment on August 31 and you will have 25 semi-monthly stipend payments in your first year.  You can divide the stipend amount from your admit letter by 25 to determine how much you will receive in each payment. Your stipend will be paid twice each month, on the 15th and the last day of the month (or the Friday before if the pay date falls on a weekend or holiday).

Disbursement schedule for continuing PhD students:

Continuing PhD students will receive your first stipend payment on September 15 (because you will have already received an August 31 payment) and you will have 24 semi-monthly stipend payments in the academic year.  You can divide the stipend amount by 24 to determine how much you will receive in each payment. Your stipend will be paid twice each month, on the 15th and the last day of the month (or the Friday before if the pay date falls on a weekend or holiday).
