Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships (GA) positions are a terrific way to advance your skillsets and lower the costs of your education while earning your degree. GA positions are posted throughout the academic year and are embedded in departments across campus working alongside faculty and staff. GAs often have flexibility to create work projects aligned with their career goals.

Many GA positions come with a tuition waiver on top of regular compensation. GAs can work up to 20 hours per week in their positions. Interested graduate students apply for GA positions like a regular job. Open positions are posted on Handshake for student applications and usually require an interview.

Interested in a GA position? Career Services staff can help you identify GA opportunities. In addition, we’ll feature many GA positions here throughout the academic year.
