Financial Aid & Assistantships

Financial Aid, Assistantships and Fellowships

Graduate assistant positions are offered in a number of departments on campus. Working an average of 20 hours per week during the fall and spring semesters, graduate assistants earn a semi-monthly stipend totaling $2,587 per semester. Work hours are somewhat flexible depending on the needs of the department. Appointments are valid for one academic year. You must reapply for an assistantship each year.



You may apply for a graduate assistantship if you have been fully admitted to the College of Graduate Studies.
