Graduate Assistantships

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

Application and Assignment Process

Graduate Assistants (GAs) 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.

The two types of positions are:

  • Graduate Assistant – $10.25/hr. - 10 hrs/wk – Complete timesheet
  • Graduate Research Assistant - $11.25/hr. – 10 hrs/wk – Salaried; no timesheet required

Students will also receive a Graduate Assistant Matriculation Fee Waiver at 50% of the tuition fee only. 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.

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