Student Employment

Graduate Assistantships

Applications for each academic year are accepted February 1 – April 15 prior to the Fall start date of the position.  Please see application section for more information.

The graduate assistant (GA) is an important part of the College of Education.

Graduate assistantships are opportunities for student educators to work closely with faculty members, to support on-going research efforts and to engage in on-going conversations regarding educational issues and research with faculty and other student colleagues.

Because graduate assistants generally work with and for several faculty members at once; they can expect broad-based exposure to the day-to-day workings of the College of Education within the context of university life.

Appointments

Graduate Assistant applicants are interviewed and appointed directly by each individual hiring area in the College of Education. A complete list of hiring units is outlined below under the application section. The dates for applications are also listed in the application section below. The number of appointments available for any given school year varies and is contingent upon the number of returning GAs from the previous year.

Remuneration

A GA receives tuition remission for two (4 credit-hour) courses per quarter for three quarters: fall, winter and spring. Tuition remission must be used in the quarter in which it is awarded; it cannot be rolled over into future quarters or used during the summer.

In addition to tuition remission, a GA receives a stipend. For this position a GA should work 20 hours per week for each of the 10 regular weeks during the quarter (excluding finals week), not more than 200 hours per quarter, and no more than 600 hours between the fall, winter and spring quarters.

Responsibilities

Departmental supervisors distribute work assignments, which may include the following: conducting literature reviews; collecting and analyzing data; copy editing or updating content of faculty papers for the purpose of research; carrying out initial journal searches; and providing assistance in writing grants and preparing articles. Graduate assistants may also be asked to perform limited copying and/or filing duties related to ongoing research activities.
