Graduate Assistantships in Student Affairs

Graduate Assistantships are available only to graduate students admitted to a graduate program. Departments, colleges, and schools may set higher or additional standards.  Students failing to meet these standards will not be granted an assistantship. Graduate students with an assistantship falling below minimum standards and not making satisfactory progress toward their degree will lose their assistantship.

Successful international applicants must be legal in status and obtain employment authorization prior to actual employment as a graduate assistant. Graduate assistants must be enrolled concurrently in courses for every term they are receiving a graduate assistantship. The minimum credit hour enrollment for a graduate student during the academic year is six graduate semester credits.

Contingent with satisfactory performance and available funds, an appointment may be continued beyond the initial year of employment. Graduate assistants typically serve in that capacity for a maximum of two years. A complete listing of graduate assistantship policies can be obtained from the College of Graduate Studies and Research.
