Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistant positions are available to graduate students for the academic year (fall/spring/summer).

Application and Assignment Process

Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs) will be assigned to work with a faculty member to assist with course preparation, grading and research. Assignments will be made based on availability of funding. Attempts will be made to match students to faculty member’s area of specialty. GRAs will conduct research to meet the Colloquium requirement. 

  • Graduate Research Assistant: Up to 15 hrs/wk for Masters level students, up to 20 hrs/wk for doctoral students. Please check with the School of Education office administrator for the most up-to-date rate of pay for graduate assistantships.

Students will also receive a Graduate Assistant Matriculation Fee Waiver of 6.0 credit hours each. This does not cover the university fees. The waiver is based on the current graduate tuition rate per graduate credit hour for the semester during which the student is a graduate assistant working a minimum of 10 hours per week. All GRAs are hourly and must submit timesheets.

To qualify as a Graduate Research Assistant, students must be fully admitted to one of the School of Education’s graduate programs and registered for at least 6 semester hours of graduate course work.
