Graduate Assistantships and Part-Time Employment

Limited graduate assistantships are available fall and spring only. Persons interested should write a letter of request for an assistantship to the Office of Graduate Studies administrator with the attached application. All application materials for admission should be completed before applying. The student must have at least an undergraduate GPA of 3.00/4.00 or above. Students should also contact the office of financial aid concerning loans, work-study and other possible sources of funding.

Students awarded a Graduate Assistantship must remain in good standing academically in order to continue. Graduate students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. Academic probation status will result in permanent forfeiture of the graduate assistantship.

Persons interested in Regular Wage Part-Time Employment should contact the appropriate department chairperson. Students should pick up the regular wage part-time employment form from the Office of Graduate Studies. After the student obtains all signatures including Financial Aid, he/she should bring the form to the Graduate Studies’ office for the Graduate Studies Administrator’s signature. A complete copy of the student’s class schedule and a job description from the student’s department must accompany the form.
