You'll have access to many resources to enhance your education. The tutors at the Huskie Academic Support Center can help you with your courses. We also have excellent library holdings, featuring hundreds of research journals and monographs.
In addition, we invite lecturers from NIU and other institutions to share their expertise in a series of seminars. These events are great networking opportunities. You can also make connections by joining the Math Club.
If you're a graduate student, you may be eligible for departmental financial support. About half of our graduate students receive significant financial assistance. We offer graduate teaching assistantships with full tuition waivers. In addition, the Graduate School offers assistantships and fellowships, some specifically designated for minorities and women in areas in where they are underrepresented.
