Graduate Assistantships

Blending academics and experience

Graduate assistantships are offered in both administrative and academic areas throughout the University. Graduate assistants work around 20 hours a week in their assigned area and receive a stipend and tuition reimbursement for their work.

The Graduate College maintains a list of offices and departments that offer graduate assistantship opportunities. These positions involve academic, administrative, research and/or teaching responsibilities. When possible, the assistantship assignment is closely related to your program of study.
