Assistantships & Employment for Graduate Students

Graduate assistantships and campus employment are available to eligible graduate students wishing to offset the cost of their education.

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships provide tuition waiver for up to 9 graduate credits in exchange for service to the University. Full-time graduate students (9 graduate credits) are preferred; Part-time students must be taking at least 6 graduate credits.

There are three categories of GA:

  • full time GA waives 9 graduate credits in exchange for 20 hrs work weekly
  • 2/3 GA waives 6 graduate credits in exchange for 14 hours work weekly
  • 1/3 GA waives 3 credits in exchange for 7 hours work weekly

Positions are posted as they become available with most postings typically occurring several weeks leading up to the start of a new semester.

On-Campus Employment

Campus Employment is available to full-time students. The University pays these students from its own resources. Students apply for jobs through the Center for Career Services.
