Graduate School : Overview

Alfred University GraduateSince 1947, Alfred University has provided a vibrant intellectual community for select students to continue their studies at the master's and doctoral level. Alfred is internationally recognized for the quality of its advanced degree programs. The University campus is ideal for serious research, creativity, and study, with small classes to allow direct access to faculty and to state-of-the-art facilities.

Students learn from each other as well as from the faculty.

Financial Support for Graduate Education

Alfred University highly values the contributions of graduate students, and is committed to financially supporting students admitted to advanced degree programs at the Graduate School. Full-time students are eligible for research, teaching or general graduate assistantships awarded by the academic departments. There is no separate application for departmental assistantship positions.

On-campus graduate students may be interested in working with Residence Life, Athletics, or Student Affairs for their assistantship assignments. Learn more about applying for these non-academic assistantships.
