Graduate Student Assistantships & Employment

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

Marymount University is an AA/EEO employer. The University has approximately 80 GA positions. Students apply for a GA position through the Marymount Jobs site. 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.
