Graduate Assistantships are awarded to well-qualified students (GPA, grades etc.). Graduate Assistantships are awarded on an academic year basis (Fall-Spring); some are available in the summer term.
There are two types of Assistantships: Teaching and Research Assistantships.
Visit the Graduate Student Assistantship website for information on the application process, deadline, required documentation, policies and regulations concerning employment and credit loads, tuition, stipends and taxes.
All first-time Teaching Assistants are required to attend and successfully complete a 3-day Teaching Assistant Seminar prior to the start of the Fall or Spring Semester. Attendance and successful completion of the Seminar (including a written component) are mandatory and a condition of appointment. Unexcused absences from any portion of the seminar or failure to attend are cause for revocation of the TA award.
