Many students do not need to pay for their masters or doctoral studies since they get to work for the University as teaching or research assistants (TA/RA). Students working as TAs or RAs get paid a monthly stipend (along with full or partial tuition), which allows them to pay for their personal expenses (e.g, rent, transportation, meals, etc.).
