Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistantships provide valuable experience to those seeking a profession in student affairs and higher education. Assistantships lower educational costs, provide students essential work experience, and allow students to pursue their program on a full-time basis.

Applications for graduate assistantships are separate from admission to the graduate school and registration to the HESA Grad Weekend. There is a strong possibility that candidates admitted into the program will be employed as a graduate assistant within the division of student affairs. Prospective students' applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. Earlier submission enhances an applicant's opportunities to obtain a graduate assistantship position.

Many assistantships provide tuition, a stipend and discount to the university bookstore. Those compensation packages will vary from position-to-position, please review carefully.
