Exploring options for financial help

What does the university pay for a Research Assistant position? I have received admission to the MS in Computer Science program at SUNY Buffalo and am exploring RA opportunities to help cover my expenses.

It totally depends on the professor with whom you are doing RA. Generally it can be around $15 and above. And you can only work for 20 hrs per week. The cost of living is less in Buffalo hence this will cover your expenses.
