All graduate students in this degree program receive financial support. Funding may be found through a variety of sources including the Western Regional Graduate Program, UNC Office of Financial Aid, UNC Graduate School, and the Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences Program Area.  Information about these opportunities is provided below. 

Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP)

The Doctor of Audiology degree program is approved by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). WICHE‚Äôs 15-state region includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Under this approval, students from the other 14 states can attend UNC at the Colorado resident graduate tuition rate rather than the non-resident rate. Residents of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands are also eligible for WRGP.  Learn how to become eligible for WRGP at UNC.

UNC Office of Financial Aid

University financial aid includes scholarships, student loans, work-study, and other programs. To be eligible for these university-wide programs, it is necessary for you to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1. Financial statements submitted after March 1 will be processed but will receive a lower priority and funding will be subject to funds available.

Scholarships are made possible through donations from private donors and alumni. Access to the Universal Scholarship Application, available through Ursa, is open each year from January 1 through March 1.

UNC Graduate School

In addition to participation in the Western Regional Graduate Program, the UNC Graduate School offers graduate assistantships and tuition assistance programs to help fund your education.  All students admitted to the Doctor of Audiology program are automatically considered for graduate assistantships and tuition assistance.
