Graduate Student Support Plan

The Graduate Student Support Plan is a highly competitive support package used to attract top students to NC State. GSSP is made up of three components -- stipend, graduate student health insurance and tuition.

Highlights to remember:

•    Stipends must be at least $307.69 per biweekly pay period ($8,000 annualized)
•    Tuition is charged based on number of credit hours for which student is registered
•    Graduate Student Health Insurance (GSHI) for 2018-19 is $2,250

How much gets charged to sponsored projects?

In-state students – 100% in-state tuition
Out-of-state students – 100% in-state tuition PLUS 25% of out-of-state portion

Example:

Rates for 9+ credit hours for Fall 2018:

In-State Tuition = $4,458.50
Out-of-State Tuition = $12,702.50

Sponsored Project would get charged the following amounts for one semester:

In-state student = $4,458.50
Out-of-state student = $6,519.50

Calculation:  $4,458.50 + (25% x ($12,702.50 – 4,458.50)) = $4,458.50 + 2,061 = $6,519.50
