Graduate Assistantships

Hiring Process

Available assistantships are advertised via Handshake, the university's Career Services job posting database. Applications will be available via Handshake as well as the college.

Faculty will review the applications on file and select candidates for interviews. After a calendar year, applications are removed from the pool.


The criteria for awarding the graduate assistantship will be based on the needs and requirements of the managing faculty or staff member. Financial need is not a criterion for selection of graduate assistants.

Tuition Waiver

Graduate assistants will receive a fee waiver for the academic year in which they are awarded the assistantship. A monthly stipend is also provided.
